By all accounts the shooting is the easy part of being a "sniper," which seems to be what this is being applied to in our discussion. Thinking more of a marksman making shots at a few hundred yards and this could be very effective.
Are soldiers more likely to hold the trigger down and let the sighting system send when they get a solution than send the round themselves? Shooting off target is still a major problem in combat units.

Imagine this mounted on an M2 in a crowded battlefield.

Where all US soldiers are wearing an IR/RFID/whatever identifier.

With just a little work this could be devastating, even if a human has to hold the trigger down.

This is just a prototype, of course Gen II and III will be better. Move the guts and bulk from the scope to the butt-stock is a good place to start.
