THE ADVANCE OF THE AUTOMATIC MOLE

Britain's tunneling technology has been outdistanced by foreign competition, particularly developments by Japanese engineers. Japan constructs more tunnels of all types than any other nation and has refined soft ground tunneling machines to the point where an unmanned Tele-Mole can be controlled from the surface laser targeting and TV monitoring. The result is tunneling cheaper and safer than ever before.
