Highly mobile, maneuver units require the ability to rapidly provide perimeter defense for their assets. Remote sensors, combined with wireless networks and Smartphones offer a means to reduce manpower impacts of perimeter surveillance. The unit can deploy sensors around their perimeter and/or key locations, and use the Smartphone to monitor them. These sensors can be used to detect personnel and vehicles depending upon the sensors capabilities. To demonstrate this, a Smartphone running the Android 2.3 OS and various sensors manufactured by Phidgets, Inc., are used to develop a real-time surveillance system. The system capabilities include wireless transmission of data and detection of vibration, movement, infrared motion, and sound. The limitations of our study are that Phidgets sensors rely on external power, are not weather-resistant, and have to be plugged into a control board to operate. A fully functional system designed to support the needs of maneuver units in virtually any operating environment would enhance the units capabilities and security.
