Default Anti-Ship Space Mines

I was reading through the excellent GURPS: Uplift book and was struck by this passage on space mines:
Space mines are small drone spaceships armed with missile warheads. They are laid in clusters near transfer points or in orbits around besieged planets. . . . The mines are equipped with stealth suites and low-emission power sources. If a ship comes within range, the mine activates its engines and zooms in for the kill (115).
This seems like a perfectly viable technology in the OTU, useful for deployment around bases, MainWorlds, gas giants, and interdicted points. Do they perhaps exist under a different name? And if they don't, is there a reason why this technology isn't widely used?
