sniper detection systems - the next step
opswarfare imagines that the next step would be automatic weapons cueing. Rafael's Spotlite Mk II can already point out where the sniper is on a screen. The logical conclusion would be to put up the sensor on a armoured vehicle, and link it to a remote controlled weapons turret.
Upon being fired by the sniper, the sensor will calculate the rough location of the sniper and pass this info to the remote weapons turret, which will slew the weapon onto the sniper. The firer, within the safety of the vehicle, can make adjustments and then fire back at the sniper upon visual confirmation.
