Fixed and mobile sensors can be used in the early detection and assessment technology that is crucial for homeland security. Unattended sensors provide a historically recognized capability for effective force manipulation in security and surveillance roles, particularly in the case of perimeter defense. The robot-deployed intrusion detection and assessment sensor packages confirm sources of motion, heat or noise, with the added flexibility of further relocation as needed to track a disturbance. A system of robotic security platforms that automatically respond in an adaptive fashion to potential disturbances reported by a broad-area field of fixed unattended sensor represents a powerful new defensive to for mitigating terrorist threat.
