Darpa Smart Bullet changes direction in mid-air (Video)

Watch as DARPA's Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program that theyrecently conducted demonstrates the first successful live-fire tests using in-flight guidance of .50-caliber bullets. This video shows EXACTO rounds maneuvering in flight to hit targets that are offset from where the sniper rifle is initially aimed. EXACTO's specially designed ammunition and real-time optical guidance system help track and direct projectiles to their targets by compensating for weather, wind, target movement and other factors that could impede successful aim.
