Guided .50-caliber bullets

exacto projectile_144DARPA’s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program recently completed its first successful life-fire test demonstration, where it actually worked!  Check out the video below to see it in action.  How does it work?  Beats me, and DARPA being who they are, they’re not exactly providing a lot of details.  From what I can gather from the project’s website, the bullet (can we even call it that?) has movable aerodynamic surface and is receiving guidance instruction from the firing weapon.  Pretty impressive technology.
