Seismic Intruder Detection Devices

Artifact Details

Tiger dung was used as a disguise for the detectors to avoid unwanted attention.

These Cold War Era intrusion detectors were designed to blend in with the terrain. They can detect movement of people, animals, or objects up to 300 meters away. The devices are powered by tiny power cells and have built-in antennae. Transmitters relay data from the device via coded impulses.
