Abstract : Small peacekeeping teams patrolling remote sectors of a proposed safe haven boundary have a substantial likelihood of mission success under a variety of conditions. In particular, when the sector width is approximately 5 kilometers wide, a vehicle mounted team assisted by one or two sensor belts deployed beyond the safe haven boundary is virtually assured of intercepting infiltrators even in the presence of a modest number of false alarms. However, extending sector width to 10 kilometers leads to mission failure even in the presence of a second belt of sensors.
