I was wondering when something like this would come out.
I guess you could place this unit on a sometype of 4 wheeler and let it run ahead of a squad and then let it sacrifice itself to locate snipers, or
even better have this unit fire back on the sniper once it locates a target.

Robots Expose Snipers

In Boston last week, a crowd gathered in the noise-filled, two-story atrium of the Boston University Photonics Center to watch a man simulate gunshots
by banging on a well-dented metal panel. Each time he repositioned himself -- on a set of stairs, for example -- and struck the metal, a small,
suitcase-sized robot would instantly swivel its cigar box-shaped head and aim two clusters of bright-white LEDs at the metal panel.
