Rifle Aiming Stabilization Makes U.S. Army Debut

posted on November 17, 2016

America’s enemies may shortly have more reason than ever to think twice before picking a fight: The U.S. Army has entered the first round of testing for an aim-stabilizing rifle. 

The technology stems from a Colorado firm named Aimlock Inc. and was recently tested at Fort Benning, Ga. It is one of 50 projects under development as part of the Army’s Expeditionary Warrior Experiment and part of the “Force 2025” initiative to advance battlefield technology for individual soldiers. The, ah, aim of the project is to add both speed and accuracy to rifle type engagements, and particularly those from moving vehicles or aircraft. 

The prototype is at present far from sleek or ergonomic. A final, fielded rifle would be trimmed down considerably, while effectively isolating the firing apparatus from erroneous shooter inputs. Ballistic software would be built in too, increasing hit probability in the stabilized system.
