Abstract : This invention pertains to a storage and planting rack for an actuation mine simulator, having a rectangular frame enclosing an open central volume, guiding channels for orienting the mine simulator, and latching and tripping mechanisms for controlling release of the mine simulator. Fins on the mine simulator are guided by diagonally opposed channels into the storage and planting rack. An electro mechanical member causes release of the mine simulator in response to an electric signal, thereby enabling planting crews to precisely control the planting location of each mine simulator.
