Situational awareness tailored for border protection
National borders present huge security challenges. There are thousands of kilometres to be monitored, varied landscapes, a lack of infrastructure and a range of emerging threats to citizens and critical infrastructure. This includes piracy, terrorism, migrant smuggling, trafficking of hazardous goods and other cross-border crime activities.
Protection against these threats is essential for a nation’s homeland security, economic prosperity and national sovereignty. Our portfolio is based on high-end technology to detect vehicles, people, drones and vessels at a large distance under the harshest environments, facilitating appropriate border control as well as lawful trade and travel.
Rapidly evolving conflict zones due to unpredictable events at the border. Temporary disputes in a specific location that do not require permanent surveillance, but need rapidly deployable solutions. Requirements for monitoring events and sharing relevant information to the authorities in real time.
Example: Short-range mobile
Fixed or mobile installation for short/mid-range surveillance
Key “hard-to-get-to” zones to be monitored along the border with challenging environmental conditions and a lack of IT infrastructure. Requirements for semi-permanent equipment with the option of relocation and mid-range surveillance missions.
Example: Mid-range shelter
Preconfigured shelter solutions with the option to relocate
Areas that require long-distance surveillance to effectively detect illegal intrusions up to several kilometres away in real time and automatically. Requirements of end-to-end border protection solutions from planning, implementation and evaluation with complete fixed infrastructure
Example: Long-range fixed installation
Long-range surveillance to ensure safety and security along the whole border.
HENSOLDT´s border protection is working in a three step funcionality: A mix of sensors detects and tracks potential threats, so that the operators know there is something out there. By using smart sensors and machine-learning technologies, our solutions can verify and classify the detected threats – they understands what is happening. Based on this, operators can react directly by a variety of integrated effectors to defeat or mitigate the identified danger.
