Due to the secrets the Xavier Institute keeps it needs the proper security to keep it's
inhabitants and it's technology safe and protected from the outside world and its enemies.
Security on the grounds:
Located approximately 5 kilometers outside of Salem Center, relative seclusion is the first
security of the mansion. However, recent housing developments and the growing awareness of some
of the X-Men's foes of their location demands that they be even more viligant, even more
Authorized vehicles and personnel are detected by long range sensor scans. Visitors with
appointments are issued a one-shot electro-pass at the gate which serves to identify and vocally
guide them through the mansion. Access to other levels can only be gained with a team member or
through an emergency computer decision.
The estate is equipped with state-of-the-art environmental and individual protective technology.
Prudence distates that some of the Mansion's security parameters are not to be committed to
hard copy. Complete security procedures are, however, psionically implanted in each student
during orientation. As new threats to safety become apparent, environmental and individual
protective technology will be upgraded.
Front Gate - Protected by Communications/Repeater Tower and Guard Robot, also outfitted
with long range sensors scans, vision-voice intercom to main house, and Stark International
Anti-Acceleration Field Generators to prevent ramming.
Communications/Repeater Tower - This "radio shack" provides communication monitoring and
equipment logs. The structure is explosion proof and has standard battery backups. The tower
provides seismic alarms below ground and motion detection alarms above.
Guard Robot - Typical guard robots are mainly used for deterence but with limited
offensive capability. Guard robots are part of in-ground anti-aircraft emplacements. Seismic
motion sensors can activate guard robots. These robots are placed throughout the grounds.
WARNING: Estate grounds are honey-combed with tunnels and underground passageways of
great antiquity. Caution is advised. Individuals are also advised to avoid the area containing
Devil's Rock (The N'gari Demons gateway). Approach this stone with extreme caution for your own
Security inside the mansion:
Cerebro Security - Finger pads (reconfigurable for other races) conduct expressive body
field measurements that identify individuals. The Lo-Res Antenna info plus the Finger Field
sensor input is monitored throughout Cerebro use- any irregularities could be a sign of
deception or psi-intrusion. The Cerebro User List is subject to periodic review and battlefield
X-Men Smart Key - Most secured areas of the manison are outfitted with these "smart
keys", which are basically a finger pad which scans the thumbprint and validates the ID in the
Security Doors - Constructed of adamantium-melded steel to protect the most sensitive
areas of the sub-basement complex, these specially designed doors with bio-molecular locking
mechanisms respond only to authorized personnel (Xavier & Senior Staff).
WarRoom Security - Security in this area is relatively light because of the difficulty
of reaching it. Individual stations have constant monitoring for user integrity. Sensitive
information sources, such as The Mission Planning Globe and the Training Coordination center
are "Key Switches". (See X-Men Smart Key, above)
Danger Room Security - Danger Room doors and walls are primarily constructed of a
Nickel-Titanium alloy. Layered within these walls are localized force-fields triggered by master
Control Intruder Detection Systems. Similarly, dedicated electromechanical security devices
regulate entry to the Ready Room Elevator and Control Room.
