EP-3E Aries II Spy Plane

There are millions of landmines throughout the world; many of them planted decades ago and their locations forgotten. Mines can remained armed for up to 50 years after being planted, causing injury and death to thousands of people each year. As a result of this tragic consequence, smart mines have recently been developed. These mines automatically become disarmed after a set period of time, making them less harmless to innocent ...
