Mind Warfare tools including implantable neural devices and Optogenetics that can enhance and control Soldier’s vision, hearing and behaviour

Implanted neural devices are already employed to alleviate symptoms like the intrusive tremors associated with Parkinson’s disease. When drugs no longer work, FDA-approved electrodes can provide relief through Deep Brain Stimulation. These implanted devices can also be used to affect human behaviour. Researchers at the University of Zurich have identified …

US Navy employs Airborne Laser Mine Detection System ( ALMDS) , and the Airborne Mine Neutralization System (AMNS) to search and destroy enemy’s mines

More than thirty countries produce mines, and twenty countries export them. Iran has reportedly laid several thousand naval mines, North Korea’s 50,000, China 100,000 or so, and Russia estimated quarter-million. Since World War II, sea mines have damaged or sunk four times more U.S. Navy ships than all other means …
