SEGENSWORTH, England, 21 Nov. 2010. The Cobham plc Avionics and Surveillance segment in Segensworth, England, is introducing a portable networked unattended ground sensor system called the Wireless Sensor Network Node (Nugget) with five internal sensors built in for covert surveillance applications such as detection of people entering and exiting a building, asset protection, and perimeter security.

The system consists of one or more nodes configured as detectors and one node configured as a destination node, which connects to a monitoring station. Each Nugget employs internal sensors such as short range passive infrared, GPS location receiver, ambient light sensor for detecting changes in illumination, tamper detect, and a trip wire/break detector. External devices can be switched on and off manually or autonomously through wireless access provided by the Nugget.

External sensors such as long range passive infrared, seismic, acoustic and magnetic can be added. The monitoring station software can be configured to combine events from sensors on several Nuggets to help classify and confirm detected targets.
