LONDON, July 10 ? The U.S. Army will soon conduct trials of a ?Star Wars?-style cannon that will clear surface-laid mines by zapping them with a high-powered laser, New Scientist magazine said Wednesday. Dubbed Zeus, the laser cannon is mounted on the top of a Humvee all-terrain military vehicle and operated from the cab.

A LOW-POWERED LASER will ?illuminate? each mine, and the operator will then switch on the main beam, which will either explode or evaporate the explosives in the device. The vehicle can destroy mines from up to 250 yards (meters) away.
