Thanks to DARPA‘s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program, snipers will soon have the benefit of using self-guiding bullets, adding even greater accuracy to their intended targets.

After a series of successful tests conducted this year, the EXACTO program is finally releasing new footage of their self-guiding bullets in action. These .50 cal. projectiles can change direction mid-flight and function much like the laser-guided bombs first developed by the United States during the Vietnam war.

Having met accuracy standards from a distance of 1.2 miles, the EXACTO bullet has optical sensors on the surface of its nose that gathers in-flight information that’s transmitted to internal electronic systems responsible for interpreting incoming data. This data is then used to adjust a series of fins located along the exterior of the bullet to change its direction.


DARPA creates first ever self-guiding bullets

That is nice, darpa is not saying much about how it works but its cool to see the future promised in endless low budget movies coming true

ETA: there is a video of this from July, delete if it was posted before, dunno why is this news now
