The US Army is experiencing "smart" rifles that can hit targets with little or no shooter

The US military is testing advanced rifles equipped with computer guidance systems, the manufacturer’s intelligent weapons Tracking Point.


Tracking Point announced that the US Army had purchased six of their smart rifles, each of which costs from 10 to 27 thousand dollars. This is a very big price, especially compared to several hundred dollars, which cost the traditional army M-16 A2 and M-4, but the Tracking Point rifles are equipped with so advanced guidance technology that the military even hopes to save on ammunition.

The arrow with the smart rifle is actually enough to mark the target, which he can see on the computer screen and through the rifle scope. The internal computer system will then tell him exactly how to aim the weapon and at what point to release the hook in order to guarantee to hit the target.

“Our rifles can communicate with each other,” said Oren Shable, a marketing unit at Tracking Point. "This allows you to conduct more intelligent battles, because you can tag targets, and then pass them on to others."

According to the company, the motive for creating a smart rifle was partly due to the fact that the modern battlefield is becoming more complex and - more importantly - more and more connected. A Linux-based computer in a rifle sight accumulates ballistic data, images of the battlefield, atmospheric condition recordings, and even the Earth's tilt at a specific time.

Rifles are also equipped with a wireless system, so that all recordings and information can be transmitted in real time to smartphones, tablets and laptops.

“The only way to guarantee accuracy is to control all the variables,” said Tracking Point spokesman Scott Calvin. The only serious factor that the rifle cannot track is wind speed, so it must be entered manually, he adds.

And Chables reports that the company has already sold about 500 rifles to its customers, including wealthy collectors and safari lovers.

        No, it is necessary to make sure that while the soldier is having lunch, the rifle itself is at war.

      I want to express my point of view, there was infa about homing bullets, but here along the way there was another topic — a ballistic computer was installed — in essence, an LMS for a rifle.
      Sometimes, obviously this is justified, to help the shooter, I don't think that this counter will be able to replace the second number from the "two" - here, obviously, one of the components of some new tactics of warfare (possibly highly specialized) is implemented.

        Yes, along the way, we just decided to implement the principle of "point-shoot-forget" on the rifle, but they did not take into account that the bullet is not controllable, and the wind sensors cannot be spread along the trajectory of its flight in order to make an amendment.

            These are just the first steps, it will probably not take root on light small arms, but if you put this crap on a tank or infantry fighting vehicle (APC), then the accuracy of hitting targets will increase by an order of magnitude.

            So far, you’ll be looking in your Ak where Americans are, they’ve already calculated from the drone to the rifle, and the fighter can only aim in the right direction. He may not even visually see the target - it is on the screen. And you are slapped from a distance of 1.5 - 2 km. You are like natives with stone axes, they are even more reliable than Kalash.

    Interestingly, do the American military study the history of the USSR?

    At the commander's field exercises in 1932, the People's Commissar Klim Voroshilov personally taught a lesson in excellent shooting to an inept officer who justified his misses with bad weapons. Sometimes in this story the officer was replaced by a soldier, and the Nagan was replaced by a “three-line”. But it doesn’t matter, the main thing is that since that time, thanks to increased propaganda, hundreds of thousands of Soviet citizens tried to learn how to shoot “Voroshilov” and get the title “Voroshilov shooter”.

    The consequence of this was increased braking on the adoption of automatic weapons in the army. Also cartridges saved. The American gangster war using the Thompson submachine gun was also cited as a negative example.

    States in terms of creating complexes of sights, optics and new technologies have gone ahead. Here it is worth taking an example from them, so as not to be left behind forever.
    However, there is a factor that everyone either forgets or is deliberately silent about. In the event of a real large-scale collision of "aliens" with "friends", most of all electronics will start after the use of nuclear weapons, special means of suppression, the massive removal of satellites from orbit using "large slingshots" and other gadgets, after which even the simplest computer will stop working.
    And then "integration", "automation" and other "cleverness" will drop to the level of 30-40 years of the 20th century.
    The conclusion is that the States who are preparing the sidekicks of liberals and shit-democrats are preparing to fight in ideal-training conditions, as in the past 20 years. When the Defense System does not work against them, but only its individual elements. And then outdated.
    Conclusion - the technique must be developed! But remember that all who come like a club are eternal!

      After work, I watch the Syrian news from Nuzanne and other videos, including those from the militants, for an hour or a half after work. So in Syria, such a computer shooter will be flooded from the tank in a minute, while he is on his knee, in a dusty room, he will direct his computer to the target.

    Tracking Point announces US Army purchases six of their smart rifles

    Chablet reports that the company has already sold about 500 rifles to its customers, including wealthy collectors and safari enthusiasts.

    This clearly shows who these rifles are designed for. A wealthy safari buff, not a military sniper.

The first ballistic and cruise missiles, the first began the manufacture of nuclear weapons. Enigma was deciphered only when it was abducted. The first computer, in fact, was created by the Germans. And engines for flying saucers, so far no one can repeat, airplanes with turbojet engines and much more.

In time - it takes 2-3 hours because of the senseless "organization" (although to the shooting gallery - 500m); those who are attracted "at night" and who are "at the weekend" - that is, do not give a rest.

Response time to a change in situation? In short, a thing is even harmful in battle - until the shooter agrees with his rifle - they will kill him ...

    I completely agree. Of course, maybe this is a divorce, but what if not? Such a technique helps to make a sniper of a very mediocre shooter of average quality with almost no additional training. The use of such weapons was described by Stephen Hunter in his series about Bab Sueggar (incidentally, it was about elite army snipers). Only there is a clause that this is the author’s imagination, and now the finished product. Albeit with flaws, but as long as there is time, you can break in and eliminate.

    And we have? A Picatinny rail was hung on the AK-12 and they go crazy to orgasm. My friend's son serves as a motorized rifleman in a unit near Moscow. For 3 months I have never fired a shot, although the documents contain 4 training sessions. Eh-ma, well, nothing has changed here, but you: "The norms have been increased ..." You can increase zero by a factor of XNUMX, nothing will change, if you believe the arithmetic, of course.

    In general, it is very similar to a city car with mechanics and an automatic machine. Until you try, everything seems to be a whim, you’ll think about moving the lever and squeezing the clutch. However, something is not pulling back. Perhaps archers said so when the first ridiculous and unreliable firearms appeared. And where are they now, archers?

    In fact, this rifle-sight complex is a hybrid of a ballistic calculator, a weather station and an optical sight itself. The theme is wildly old and frayed to holes,BUT in comparison with previous analogs, it has significantly "lost" in weight and dimensions, but still not small. The question is about the autonomy of the system, and what to do when the battery is dead.
    Humanity is moving forward and modernizing its own destruction system)))

    For snipers, this is probably, and certainly interesting and necessary. But not for linear mouths. So talk about saving ammunition can be put aside.

    If you dip this rifle in a swamp, sprinkle it with sand and tear a grenade next to it, it will itself be aimed at the target or not. And how many hours of battle would she have batteries? A laptop is enough for four hours. And then you have to look for a charger ... You have to charge from your own ass. Insert the connector there.

    I already asked on the site about robotic sniper rifles of the 80s and 90s. The rifle is mounted on a special chassis, separate from the shooter, and the shooter sits to the side behind the joystick near the monitor and presses the buttons, for today's level it’s primitive, but in 80 it was a cool device amers.
