The Army is working on a getting a warhead that sounds like “peak absurdity,” says Spencer Ackerman at Danger Room.
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.
The “Nonlethal Warhead for Miniature Organic Precision Munitions” is described as a “magic bullet” in the Army’s official quest to find a small business that will make this little gem a reality.
