    US Military's Self-Steering Bullets Can Hit Moving Targets

    http://player.ooyala.com/iframe.js#...41dd00d0a&ec=d2d3dydDrq8coG-uAZn8CgVIsCW_UYZl

    In what some might consider a terrifying development, the U.S. military has passed a key milestone in creating self-steering bullets.


    Using technology developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), experienced and novice shooters alike demonstrated that they could hit moving targets during a series of tests in February, agency officials announced yesterday (April 27).



    Military snipers are often faced with having to hit moving targets in difficult conditions, such as high winds or dusty terrain like that found in Afghanistan. DARPA's Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance
    (EXACTO) program was designed to increase snipers' accuracy in these situations, by improving their range and reducing the time required to hit a target.




    A video released by DARPA shows how the system uses real-time optical guidance to
    steer the ammunition to a moving or accelerating target, regardless of weather and other forms of interference.


    In the video, an expert shooter fires at a moving target, and the self-steering bullet corrects its course to hit the target. Then, an untrained person who has never used a sniper rifle before takes aim at the moving target and the bullet still finds its mark.



    "True to DARPA’s mission, EXACTO has demonstrated what was once thought impossible: the continuous guidance of a small-caliber bullet to target," DARPA Program Manager Jerome Dunn
    said in a statement. "This live-fire demonstration from a standard rifle showed that EXACTO is able to hit moving and evading targets with extreme accuracy at sniper ranges unachievable with traditional rounds."


    Dunn added that achieving the self-steering capabilities with a small, .50-caliber weapon was a "major breakthrough," which would make it possible to expand the system to all calibers.

      In addition, the radar can be mounted on different types of heavy machineguns like Pecheneg and Kord, as well as automatic grenade launchers AGS-17 and AGS-30. In such combination, the radar is capable to detect and destroy the enemy timely, and being linked with a night vision system, it helps to engage group targets at total absence of optical visibility.

      The radar’s equipment provides for full-scale and effective reconnaissance of a terrain sector in panoramic view, identification of nature and type of an object at the distance of 4-8 km and finding its coordinates for further massive artillery and air strikes. The radar weights 12 kg, it is man-portable.

      During training missions scouts practice covert battlefield relocations, deployment of the radar, carrying out reconnaissance, target detection, identification and engagement.

      The Fara-VR radar system was commissioned by the Western Military Command’s reconnaissance units in the current year.

    RPG-32 "Launch" - hand-grenade multikaliberny


    Russian RPG-32 "HASHIM" - pierce armor grenade meter, then it is not really until recently could not even say looking into military manuals, but now they are rewritten. A new generation of Russian grenade launchers that's on the shoulder, and the system continues to be refined, tested under full load took place in the deserts of Jordan, where the super modern grenade was so successful that the light feed Jordanian king even received a proper name for the divine Muslims.

    The newest RPG-32 "HASHIM" created for the 21st century soldier on the battlefield who need a versatile and reusable system, so far, no one other than the weapon developed in the sixty-first year, the RPG-7 did not meet these requirements, he now has a reliable replacement. Today it is one iza most powerful rocket-propelled grenades in the world, breaks puff armor one meter, it is enough to hit virtually any existing tanks.
    Depending on the type of target can be equipped with bullets of various calibers - 72.5 or 105 mm type warhead and cost. The same for all rounds is a trigger length of 36 centimeters and a weight of 3 kilograms, including the optical sight, hosted in the service inside the circulation starting device.
    Jordan's King Abdallah second was directly involved in the development of requirements for the new grenade launcher, in fact a system made by order of the Middle Eastern side, where it passed rigorous testing - shooting at tanks, armored vehicles, and reinforced concrete structures, the hit could not stand no obstacle, and the grenade did not give any a single misfire
