XMX1100 Scorpion: Intelligent Munitions System (IMS) is a smart system being developed by Textron and the U.S. Army TACOM-ARDEC Picatinny Arsenal.[1]

The IMS allows for controlled and safe use of munitions in the battlefield and prevents unwanted munitions from being buried and forgotten. It is remotely operated and can be left in the field on an automatic mode or turned off to allow friendly vehicles to pass through. Each module contains four anti-vehicle smart munitions that are fired into the air and release a guided warhead that will descend vertically on the target.
