"BUGSPLAT" PREDICTS BOMBS' IMPACT One of the reasons that so many civilians are killed by "precision" munitions is that a bomb's effects are usually estimated by simply drawing a circle around the target.But the U.S. military has developed new software that more accurately predicts the impact of a bomb, the Washington Post reports. The unfortunately-named "Bugsplat" program takes into account the terrain being struck, the size and shape of the weapon, the altitude from which it's being dropped.The Post predicts that Bugsplat will be ready for an attack on Iraq.
