The company Orbital ATK introduced a new generation of adjustable projectiles

39
Small-caliber artillery will receive sniper accuracy. According to the portal janes.com, the company Orbital ATK has introduced a new generation of adjustable projectiles caliber 30 and 40 mm.


New projectiles, designated PABM, are designed for Mark 44 guns (MK44, Mk. 44 Bushmaster II), which are massively used to arm boats and ships, as well as armored vehicles and combat aviation.

The company Orbital ATK introduced a new generation of adjustable projectiles

The defeat of the drone projectile PABM.

When creating PABM at Orbital ATK, the lessons from the Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program were used. This program was commissioned by the United States Defense Ministry's Advanced Defense Projects Agency (DARPA), and the result was the creation of .50 BMG caliber bullets, corrected by a laser beam.

In PABM, the principle of the projectile trajectory correction is used, as well as the feedback technology, which allows activating a contactless fuse in close proximity to the target. The company Orbital ATK indicate that with the help of PABM shells, the army can get a universal means for hitting targets (including aerial) with a single shot. Thus, the higher cost of adjustable projectiles will pay off with their low consumption, "Warspot".

    Another prodigy. You’ll draw money, you’ll buy shells, with one shot at the bull's-eye. Dreamers. I think 700 lard pin. Dostanets not enough with such an appetite.

      The military-industrial complex lives on their orders. There is an order, there is loot, so the goods will be. And in large numbers. And as we have in this direction, it’s interesting. There is an order, a bobla is not enough. Or is there an alternative?

      I look, they are seriously afraid of drones ... and they are shot down with a laser and now a special projectile .... belay

          Novelty is only in one thing - caliber. Adjustable shells are becoming more miniature. And this means that they can be used on ever lighter guns and carriers.

            OK! We are waiting for the bullets from the air.

          The new thing is that the target is illuminated by a laser, and the projectile is equipped with an optical sensor,
          which corrects the flight of the laser beam. Plus, the range finder to the target and
          range finder to the projectile. When they coincide, a shell explodes.
          The projectile turns into a mini-guided missile.

              The novelty is that all this placed 30mm shell is brought to mass production.
              And already on the way corrected 12.7mm bullet - the revolution of precision shooting and the extinction of the sniper craft.

                That’s vryatli, the anti-sniper will work well with the laser, and the Curtain will also shoot down laser sights. So the eternal opposition of the sword and shield has not yet been canceled

              If nothing is visible due to smoke and dust, it will be the same as without laser guidance.
              L-logic.

            New is that the target is highlighted by a laser

            Very well, the answer will come more precisely ...

      They also wanted to stuff super shells on the irons (Zumwalt), but now they have calculated and decided to use the usual ones (order). Sometimes even a “money drawer" doesn’t help laughing

    we are doing similar work, and in iron only the caliber is more powerful
    art. Installation A-220M 57-mm
    maybe something similar and under ZRPK create
    TTX impressive compared to 30 mm
    projectile 57-mm 53-УОФ-281У has a range of 12 km., height 8 km.

      "we are doing similar work, and in iron only the caliber is more powerful" ///

      I really, really doubt it. Russia has no close military electronics of this level.
      If optical sensors were not installed on the Caliber Caliber, then on
      anti-aircraft shell and even more so fail.

        And all the Jewish comrades who are scientists and engineers are to blame. They dumped light bread in Israel, and now we are alone in confronting all of NATO. So not only are they now also in his ranks. Not good.

        We have ATGMs with similar guidance, we are deciding the miniaturization issue.
        Only too expensive is it for Russia.

        But on “Iskander” the “camera”, and not only, entered, with the coincidence of the visible with the embedded, an almost sheer attack on the specified target begins.

    As in any other industry, one must constantly invent something in order to stash another money.
    But I propose a new generation of goals, like the development of electronic warfare, not a shell will hit the target, but rather, it will be aimed at the shell. In. It will be a truly new generation.

    A cloud of tungsten needles is guaranteed to destroy. But the fuse must recognize the object at the right distance from the object. The projectile must be expensive. Here it is necessary to use electronic warfare, it is effective and cheap.

      It is probably more correct to compare the cost of equipment and other objects that will not be destroyed with the help of a drone (no matter the shock or reconnaissance).

          Already why, humanity has learned to produce shells in large quantities fellow So drones are still in the minority.
          Well, in the future, I believe, the gain will be the one who will establish stream production and who will crush the number (it does not matter, attacking drones or anti-drones)
