EXACTO: Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance
Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) is a 0.50 caliber round bullet that can change direction mid-air to reach its target.
It was in news recently as it was revealed recently that Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense concluded the Phase-II of the technology development.
The phase-II involved testing of design, integration and demonstration of aero-actuation controls, power sources, optical guidance systems, and sensors.
