The Danger Room's David Axe reports on some cool new kit:

"The ability of the [NLOS-LS] missile to defeat a moving target is a first for the U.S. Army," said Col. Doug Dever, the Army project manager. He said Missiles in a Box will give soldiers the ability to "precisely engage moving targets" on their own - "a capability they've never had before."

These are the fruits of the Army's much-maligned and now cancelled Future Combat Systems.
