Supporting peace and stability through border surveillance
Border control have concerns that people are attempting to make their way across extremely dangerous, desolate terrain, in an attempt to cross the border into the country.
The isolated location makes it extremely difficult to maintain effective boundary surveillance and the recent treacherous weather conditions have made the area even more inaccessible.
The country’s borders are extremely vulnerable to terrorist attacks, smuggling and illegal immigration – so the situation cannot be ignored. The wellbeing of people attempting to cross the border is also of grave concern.
I-Master is launched.
The lightweight surveillance radar’s smart data processing capabilities enable large areas of the ground to be quickly mapped and surveyed, without having to wait for a weather window.
The ground map produced by I-Master is used to identify terrain features, like barriers and flooding, to support further analysis and operational planning.
Moving objects can also be identified, such as people slowly making their way across the harsh terrain.
This information can be used to establish general patterns of activity and to plan what intervention is required.
Mike Green, I-Master’s Product Marketing Manager, said:
I-Master provides enhanced situational awareness, in the most remote areas due to its long-range, wide area reconnaissance and target tracking capabilities.
With 360-degree coverage and a stabilised antenna, the system provides high-fidelity imagery for classification and positioning, which enables swift detection and assessment to be achieved.
