To address the hazards to civilians, recent landmine systems have incorporated command detonation by remote operator and self-destruct capabilities. To improve military performance and prevent civilian casualties, the US military is integrating wireless networking and autonomous sensing into next-generation landmines. These new systems increase target discernment, enhance battle-shaping capabilities, and facilitate disposal or self-destruction of next-generation minefields when they're no longer needed.
