SciFi Military “Weapons That Actually Exist”

Technologies that are understood by the general public are seriously outdated. There has been a revolution of new advances in Military technologies, and much of it draws heavily from the use of electromagnetic energy, lasers and A.I. robots.

The future is downright deadly – that is, if you wind up in the crosshairs.

Though many of these devices may seem outlandish, they are, in fact, ready to make the difference in the conflicts of the rest of the 21st Century.

These technologies are changing the world that we live in, and tilting the tables in favor of whoever can maintain dominance over the spectrum and the arena in which the battle is to take place.

A highlight of these technologies includes:

Directed Energy Weapons – Rumored to exist long before the Pentagon admitted that it did, these weapons focuse a high-energy laser that can destroy practically anything in its path. A 10kw laser can take out incoming threats, enemy planes, satellites and more. As well as high energy Lasers, Microwave weapons have been the most extensivley tested example. Most prominent among those is the Active Denial System. this technology has already been in use on the battlefield in Iraq, and at home at protests both in the U.S. and in other nations.

Laser-weapon systems– There are many variations of this, but the most utilized is becoming the laser shot system deployed by the military on boats and other craft with the intention of shooting down UAVs and other drone craft. It is precise and very low cost, and certainly something likely to be part of the future of warfare.

(The original concept for such a weapon can be seen in Nikola Tesla’s claim of a Death Ray, while it sounds fanciful the concept for such a weapon has been there for some time.)

Precision-guided firearms/Smart Bullets – This smart, long-range, superior tracking system won’t fire the bullet until the weapon is on target. Now, being a highly deadly sniper doesn’t require rare skill and natural talent, but simply the ability to operate this smart gun.

Rail Guns– The major benefit is that they don’t need gun powder or explosives. Instead, it is fired via electromagnetic forces – which can be extremely potent. Projectiles can be fired at speeds up to 4500 mph, or more than 1 mile per second. Though this requires tremendous amounts of electricity, they may replace missile defense systems as a cheap and cleaner weapons grid.

Swarm bots – Using the collective power of slavish, hive insect behavior, It is supposed that a desired collective behavior emerges from the interactions between the robots and interactions of robots with the environment. This could play a central role in many military strategies and scenarios, using command and communication without the need for human operators.

So What else is coming down the pipeline from DARPA that we don’t yet know about?The answer is plenty, and there’s much more in development. Technology is advancing more rapidly than ever before.

Brace yourself, and stay prepared!
