Gotta give it to the Army…
When it comes to weapons?
They come up with some really CRAZY inventive, hard-to-be-believed, weapons!
[via Wired]Army’s ‘Magic Bullet’ Will Hang Out in Midair, But Won’t Kill You
This is the recipe for peak absurdity in weapons design. One part bazooka round; one part suicidal drone; one part stun round. What the U.S. Army hopes will emerge from that mix is a warhead that can loiter in midair while it hunts a human target — but won’t kill him when it finds him.
That “Nonlethal Warhead for Miniature Organic Precision Munitions” is on the Army’s wish list for small business. And for good measure, its outline for the weapon relies on a different system, one that’s just barely getting off the ground. “This effort will require innovative research and advancements in non-lethal technologies which can be packaged within a very small volume and weight,” the Army concedes.
This latest nonlethal weapon is a modification of something called the Lethal Miniature Aerial Munition System (LMAMS), something the Army explicitly compares to a “magic bullet.” That warhead “should be capable to acquire a man-size target at the system’s combat range, in less than 20 seconds, flying at an altitude of 100 meter[s] above ground,” according to the Army’s new solicitations for small business. “If conditions for attack are not met, LMAMS will be able to loiter over the target for up to 30 minutes.” [Read More]
