Israel Invests In New High Tech Weaponry

February 24, 2009

Israel (ChattahBox) – In a story reported by Cutting Edge News, it has been claimed that Israel has created a line of new high tech military tactical weapons in their battles against Hamas.

Being described as ‘James Bond’ like gadgets, these amazing looking urban warfare weapons are being launched against Hamas, many of which give soldiers a better look into a situation, to allow them to respond to specific threats.

For example, a spherical camera, known as the ‘Eyeball’,  created by ODF Optronics, a company in Tel Aviv, which can be tossed into a building to transmit images to the soldiers waiting outside, allowing for increased information before an attack.  While the ‘Eyeball’ is for tossing the Eyedrive, is a lightweight, four-wheel, remote-controlled, observation and surveillance mini-robot that provides continuous, real-time 360º audio and video surveillance.

Another item is a sniper rifle, currently being tested by the same company. Known as the HTR 2000, it will give infantry soldiers a long range firing weapon that can easily reach 1,000 meters. Originally created by American-based H-S Precision, it has an added night vision scope, and is hoped to give soldiers an increased target accuracy.

Each of these weapons have been used in the Israel/Gaza conflict, Operation Cast Lead, and further development is planned for each.
