Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems play a vital role in nations' critical infrastructures and taking it to the next level of enhance operations we proposed new mobile sensor network architecture for SCADA system. The key value of Sensor devices is monitoring of physical and industrial environments. The data is captured by sensors and communicate to a central controller which analyses the data and takes appropriate actions. In many ways, sensors serve as the basic elements in SCADA system, it sense the state of the process through measurement of process parameters such as temperature, pressure, voltage, pH, position, size, etc. We studied the existing protocols and int<;grate it with 1Pv6 to support mobility. Our motivation in this study is to make an architecture for mobile sensor network which is appropriate for SCADA system aiming to make it mobile to enhance the conventional system that SCADA system is currently have. This is also in connection with the aim to level up the SCADA components from fixed to mobile.
