We've seen a number of autonomous helicopters in our day, but most of them just fly around showing off their avoidance and maneuvering skills and snapping the occasional photo or vid. Well Neural Robotics Incorporated has just made their AutoCopter minicopter a lot more, um, interesting by adding an AA-12 12-gauge shotgun to the nose of the hovering sentry. Previously, the sub-$100,000 AutoCopter was restricted to such "mundane" tasks as surveillance, mine detection, and escort duty, but made a fun and easy target for enemies to pick off. According to the rather loving write-up by Defense Review, with the addition of heavy firepower, this semi- or fully-autonomous, parachute-equipped copter is now able to "seek out, locate, identify, and destroy/terminate (i.e. kill) the enemy with extreme prejudice at 300 rounds-per-minute." Isn't technology great! You can catch some footage of this little terror in action by following the "Read" link...

Are those zip ties holding that gun on there?

Fucking Christ! That video downloads at dialup speed. Taken over an hour now... Says it's almost done...

I can't even get the thing to START downloading

ETA: It must have seen me post bad about it, it started

another edit, says there is 10 sec left after almost 3 hours, don't know how long it has been at 10 secs
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 11:35:53 PM EDT
Why a shotty? Why not some sort of grenade launcher or something? Its gotta be hard as hell to hit anything with that. Its not stabilized at all. Its just strapped in there with zipties or some shit.
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 11:44:42 PM EDT
It can shoot exploding shells out of it also, but I agree that the shotty would not be the best for combat. It could be a very useful tool elsewhere
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 11:49:18 PM EDT
How cool would it be to see that thing blasting "flamethrower" rounds at night?

Should have added a belt fed gun .. what you get 10 rounds from the shotgun?
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 12:34:29 AM EDT
10rds but at 300 rds per min, but it is a shotty so you can get like 20,000 projectiles per min.

So, that will last what...2 seconds? Sounds to me like they need to up the mag capacity. But then, they'll run into a weight problem. They should turn an F-35 into a UAV and mount a 30mm gun from an A-10.

That shot gun on that thing is sweet! Any chance that will be offered in semi-auto only since the AWB is gone or is that on the DD shotgun list?

Here's some info on the shotgun. It can use a drum to increase capacity as well as shoot explosive 12 gauge rounds to increase firepower:
