The Hills Have Eyes: See the Rock-Shaped ‘Sensors’ The US Will Use to Monitor Afghanistan
The US government's military had sensors like that in the Vietnam Era, dropped them all over the place, particularly the Ho Chi Minh Trail.The sensors were momitored in a large facility in Nakhon Phanom, Thailand, just across the Mekong River from Vietnam.They didn't work particularly well, I suspect the new ones either won't work well, or those "ignorant goatherders" will work out a method to negate them.
I'll take 500, please. Is there an app for that?
Reminds me of those air dropped Russian mines used there so long ago.
Ha ha! I remember when Viet Nam era military surplus started hitting the surplus electronics channels. When I was in high school you could get rumble sensors feeding VHF radios all encased in very realistic looking simulated ox dung. You could saw them open to get the transmitter out, or just use them as paper weight/conversation starters for good grins. This is one technology that is actually cheap and easy to do and well within the capabilities of any militia with a techie or two on board. A quick-deploy vehicle sensor network seems like a handy thing to have cached. A key piece of the puzzle is picking a disguise that is easy to fabricate with something like epoxy casting. Common local rocks are good. Maybe garden gnomes in the suburbs?
UK got caught doing the same in Russia in 2006.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/9022827/Russian-spy-rock-was-genuine-former-chief-of-staff-admits.html
