- Battle droid: "Signal is being transmitted to the mining array."
- Mining array computer: "Signal received. Mining charges primed. Detonation in fifteen minutes."
- ―Activation of mining charges[src]
A mining array was a command center that controlled the detonation of mining charges. A signal from the mining array's computer set a timer; after this counted down, sub-surface charges detonated. This was helpful in certain types of mining, as that practiced on the planet Viidaav. Mining arrays could be housed in fortified bunkers with automated defense systems.
