Though not as impressive as Metal Storm Weapons, the Area Denial Weapon System is “based on integrating Metal Storm 40 mm stacked projectiles into a multi-barrel pod syst em and linking them with intrusion sensors and a fire control system.” Video after the jump.
The live fire demonstration used inert projectiles, and engaged simulated targets based on information provided by a computerised sensor system. Firing responses included a range of combinations from single shots through to a rapid-fire burst of 2O projectiles at a rate of 1500 rounds per minute. The pods are able to fire at a maximum rate of 6,000 rounds per minute. More barrels can be added to each pod to increase payload as required
