The vast chalk expanse of Salisbury Plain is the sight of a futuristic battle worthy of a 'Terminator' movie this weekend, with a range of gadgets built by automotive design firm MIRA and global defence outfit BAE Systems tackling a host of security threats as part of a Ministry of Defence science and technology competition. The MIRA equipment, such as a remote-controlled ground vehicle and an unmanned air vehicle, will be used to track down a sniper, an armed vehicle and a terrorist cell. MIRA and BAE will be pitted against five other teams in the Grand Challenge, and the winner will have a chance to work on further MoD projects. Let's hope it's all above board then.
