This single shot robotic sentry is a cheap and effective deterrent to both raiders and larger enemy forces. Once deployed it cannot be moved again.

"Both races will be able to build a number of stationary weapon platforms." - Dan Irish, Executive Producer

"While the vastness of 3D space always makes it hard to lock down territory as your own, the two types of static defenses--one with guns for use against fighters and one with ion cannons--make it possible to deter smaller enemy raids." - Sam Parker, GameSpot

These platforms are "single-burn" like probes, in that they can be given a move command, but only once; thereafter, they are immobile. However, if not given a move command, they assume parade formation with and follow whatever ship builds them, so indirectly you can move them all you like, as long as you keep them with the mothership that built them.
