US Army Developing AI-Guided Long-Range Smart
Artillery Shell The US Army is developing a new kind of “smart”
artillery round that can find targets and adjust its flight path to hit them. American Extended Range Cannon Artillery autoloader
for self-propelled howitzer is being tested for the first time at Yuma Proving Ground. The ERCA will provide faster and safer firing
capabilities. The Extended Range Cannon Artillery itself
is a massive undertaking in that everything is under development at the same time and
it’s a platform that needs to be compatible with multiple howitzer configurations, multiple
projectiles and multiple missions. The Cannon-Delivered Area Effects Munitions
(C-DAEM) is a new 155-millimeter artillery round in development for the Army’s M777
howitzer, M109A6 Paladin self-propelled howitzer and new XM1299 self-propelled howitzer. The high-tech shell will be able to guide
itself toward its intended target, even in areas where GPS is jammed by enemy forces. The munition, which has a 43-mile range, will
take more than a minute to reach its target, and can slow down and guide itself on the
way. By doing so, it makes it easier for the Army
to hit targets that move around, like vehicles and infantry – although it can’t hit a moving
target yet. Popular Mechanics notes that Artillery will
replace the dual purpose improved conventional munition (DPICM), a type of cluster munition
that made up for a lack of precision accuracy by scattering bomblets above the battlefield,
ensuring it would at least do some damage to its target even if it didn’t hit it directly. However, there’s always a percentage of
those bomblets that don’t explode when they’re supposed to, and wind up injuring or killing
civilians who stumble upon them, sometimes years later. The new round can reportedly land within seven
feet of its intended target; close enough to do some serious damage, even without a
direct hit. Once the gunners insert the propellant into
the autoloader, the Extended Range Cannon Artillery Autoloader Team takes over operations. The Extended Range Cannon Artillery Autoloader
Team monitors and controls the autoloader system from the safety of a remotely located
connex box. “It’s doing everything by itself, all
we are doing is monitoring the health of it, checking that it is updating us with what
it’s currently doing, and making sure that it’s saying that everything is okay,”
responds Dave Gatter, a Control Systems Engineer and member of the Extended Range Cannon Artillery
Autoloader Team. The Army asked Congress to redirect $24 million
last month toward funding the C-DAEM program, which as part of the Pentagon’s Long Range
Precision Fires program is the service’s chief concern. According to Defense News, the new round is
scheduled to be in service as early as next year. Thank You For Watching. Please Like, Share, Comment and Subscribe.
