First, the 'spotter' finds the desired location to put the minefield
installs a beacon post. Then, the modified bomber flies overhead
scattering miniature landmines all over the place. The mines then
flock towards the beacon, arrange themselves in a geometrical
pattern around the beacon
randomized spacing, and bury
themselves a few cm below the surface. Sensors in the beacon
detect nearby movement of a cat, and a mine pops out of the
ground, runs towards the source of the movement, and detonates
like the vulture spider mines in Star Craft. Not intended to be
powerful enough to kill or seriously injure an animal (contact our
Borg-relations department for information on our line of military-
grade antifelinoid mines), these
landmines are little more than modified flashbang grenades. No
shrapnel, no injurious concussive shockwave, no maimed pets or
children. A camera on the sensor/beacon post records video of all
detonations for awesome youtubage. If the target sees it coming
and flees before the mine can detonate, it goes back to its hiding
spot and reburies itself.
Also programmable for reacting to rabbits, coyotes, and
unattended small children. No
required, they can be deployed in smaller amounts by hand or
dumptruck just as well.
My tactical advisors at 21st Century Quest strongly recommend
pairing flocking mines with our patented B.B. Home Defense
System for total pest control.
