We propose a novel module as the main building block of a wireless surveillance system for homeland security applications. The proposed module houses processors (DC, IF and Microwave), cameras and batteries rechargeable by solar energy. Conformal solar panel and antenna are mounted on at least two of its surfaces. At least one inclined surface for maximum sunlight exposure is required for the solar panel. Multi-beam property of the antenna together with the module side adjustment will cover a complete hemisphere which satisfies the line of sight communication at the desired microwave ISM band. A standard module has a fixed inside housing for processors and cameras and adjustable inclined surfaces for the solar panel and antenna mounting.
