Weapons manufacturer FN Herstal has just released a “Black Box” for weapons. The device can detect and track all kinds of information about the weapon that it’s attached to. Stuff like how many shots are fired, burst rate and burst length, firing sequences and even ID and location data. Everything you need to know about your weapon.
The device has a battery with a service life of 10-years and it will record up to 100,000 rounds. The device should keep weapons functioning in top shape, which will theoretically save the military money and casualties.
