"Live" sounded strang applies more to ammunition and television. But thanks for your suggestion, I decided to go with "actual" projects.

Explanation:
The expression, "skarpt" is borrowed from the military and means live ammunition. It also means "sharp," as a spearpoint, cut glass, etc., , When applied to persons or ideas, it means "well-defined," "clever," "sharp," etc.

But here the author really seems to have borrowed from the military and simply means that a pilot test is the wisest option, before letting loose (scarce?) resources on a full blown project.
