Smart weapons are computer-guided munitions that can hit a target with high accuracy using bullets, land mines, and onboard computers. They are equipped with technologies like laser, television, satellite guidance system, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML). These advanced technologies aid military personnel in dealing with combatants on the battlefield and eliminating or reducing the collateral damage. Smart weapons can be programmed to filter unwanted signals in multiple-signal environments and find a specific target on a battlefield.
Due to rising geopolitical tensions between countries, military organizations in different parts of the world are focusing on upgrading the existing firefighting equipment of the armed forces. This represents one of the significant factors catalyzing the need for digital innovation and transformation of weapons. Smart weapons assist in analyzing battlefield situations on land, at sea, and in the air. Moreover, advanced technologies can be embedded in electronic warfare (EW) systems to provide augmented reality (AR) information to operators. In line with this, defense research and development (R&D) organizations are developing fully automated smart weapons that can make decisions on strike or self-respond. For instance, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an agency of the United States Department of Defense, funded six organizations to support the Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3) program. This program aims at developing high-resolution, bidirectional brain-machine interfaces that can enable diverse national security applications. These applications include controlling active cyber defense systems, multitasking during complex missions, and swarms of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). In addition, the increasing spending on the modernization of the defense sector is driving the market for smart weapons across the globe.
