Combating cross-border crime, terrorism, and illegal crossings requires tremendous efforts to identify and prevent threats challenging land, maritime and points of entry.
To maximize these efforts and ensure the safety of citizens, police and immigration enforcement can now rely on an integrated border management system for full operational control.
With steadily growing numbers of travellers, states need to address the challenge of striking the right balance between open yet fully secure, controlled borders.
Thales Border Management provides a full range of applications to implement best-practice immigration processes and state-of-the-art technologies at border management headquarters (HQ) and border control points (BCPs).
The solution enables border control agencies to process both arriving and departing travellers in wide-ranging situations at air, land and sea points of entry- at both staffed immigration desks and Automatic Border Control (ABC) gates.
