'Wanted' Bullets - Could Be Real

Anybody remember the movie Wanted. I am sure you guys would remember the cool bullets. Well, Lockheed and Martin are trying to come up with bullets that can change course.. midflight.


What if a sniper could fire a bullet that changed course in midflight, to hit its target? The Pentagon is handing out nearly $22 million to try to find out.

Darpa, the Defense Department's far-out research arm, announced a pair of contracts last Tuesday, to start designing a super, .50-caliber sniper rifle that fires guided bullets. Lockheed Martin received $12.3 million for the "Exacto," or Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance, project, while Teledyne Scientific & Imaging got another $9.5 million.
