Tragically, current-generation landmines linger indefinitely, threatening devastating injury for decades after hostilities cease. William Merrill and his colleagues discuss how to improve landmines for military and civilians using dynamic networking, networked sensors, and intelligent command and control. Their new-generation system can dynamically reconfigure itself to better protect military forces during warfare and also be deactivated and safely removed post bellum, preventing needless tragedies to civilians in ensuing years.
