CSIR principal engineer Danie de Villiers explains that a newly developed method of mortar set-up could play a crucial role in modern conflict situations. "The mortar as an indirect weapon still has an important place in modern warfare. But it is necessary to investigate technologies that can make mortar systems lighter, more responsive and more lethal. The prismatic mirror addresses these challenges," he says.
