Introducing the Self-Steering Bullet

Written By: Christine Dantz

June 2015

Meet EXACTO, also known as Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance. The U.S. Military's newest weapon brings new meaning to the old saying, "This bullet has your name on it." The bullet has exactly what its acronym suggests, exact accuracy.  

Back in the USA News Story: Introducing the Self-Steering Bullet.

Footage released by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) from EXACTO testing from this February shows an obscure, grainy video that appears to show a bullet that chases and maneuvers to hit its target. The.50 caliber projectile is a 'smartbullet' designed to improve the accuracy of U.S. snipers in rural areas and under poor weather conditions.

While opponents of the defense technology fear that the bullets could find their way to U.S. streets, it's unlikely to happen. The EXACTO is designed for rifles, which only account for a small number of reported crimes in the U.S.

In the meantime, the 'smartbullet' can decrease the number of accidental hits, saving lives.
