Scopes are meant to make lives easier for soldiers, allowing them to hit their targets with greater accuracy. An Israeli firm, Sharp Shooter, has developed an advanced scope, which ensures that every bullet hits the target it was intended for.
The British Army is testing the smart rifle scope that locks the target with a red square based on image processing, thus making every bullet count.
Touted as a game-changer in infantry warfare, the scope can be used with any rifle and it automatically finds targets by putting a red square around it.
SAS, a special unit of the British Army, is currently testing the newly developed scopes that the US Delta Force has already hailed as ‘outstanding’.
Working with the same accuracy in both day and night, the scope calculates all the angles, speed, distance, and other factors before locking a target. Once the target is locked, all you have to do is press the trigger and the bullet is released in a millisecond.
The scope costs £800 and it is in use by the Israeli forces for over a year. Armies from Australia and America have also tested it in recent times.
