The Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) has brought the first of three Mobile Detection Assessment Response System (MDARS) robots online to improve security patrols at remote portions of NNSS.
The small autonomous robot, which is remotely operated from a command center at NNSS, is designed to perform random patrols. Onboard sensors and real-time video allow the operator to see intruders or suspect activity as soon as the robot encounters it. The MDARS unit operates independently and only requires direct operator action to assess situations when encountered.
