Possible Existence of Extra-Terrestrial Technology in the Solar System
R. Burke-Ward (2000), JBIS, 53, 2-12Refcode
Potential features of the design and function of extra-terrestrial probes are discussed with the aim of establishing criteria for search, detection and contact. Probes are categorised according to three primary areas of function - data-gathering, direct action, and sentient entities. Conclusions are drawn about possible probe technologies and modes of behaviour.
