Border Protection

Surveillance and Homeland Security


Providing security for the nation and its interests represents a significant challenge, but with the right technology it is achievable. Borders, infrastructure, and the lives of citizens need protection against a diverse set of threats that are often disguised and unconventional. To succeed, our first responders and military need smart, practical tools to carry out their missions.

Border Monitoring
Millions of people enter the United States each year - some stay, and others leave after a brief visit. How do we know which people should be allowed to visit, and more importantly, allowed to stay? Currently there are numerous safety mechanisms, including passports, visas, and immigration officials who check for matches against threat watchlists. There are also computer-driven watchlist checks for everything from airline passengers to visa applicants.
 
Border PatrolBut there are still wide gaps in security that compromise our borders. Of the thousands of visitors, relatively few undergo intense screening by a human eye. Even then, changes to appearance can make comparison difficult. Computer checks using 2D photographs often cannot deal with problems such as different lighting conditions between mugshots, or different facial expressions.

The solution is 3D facial recognition, which can overcome obstacles common to 2D matching or human error. A 3D facial recognition system that allows security or immigration officials to automate the task of entry monitoring at the nation's borders. By constantly monitoring for faces in terrorist lists or criminal lists, 3D is a powerful screen.

Border Control
Securing and defending the nation's borders requires more than deploying thousands of fixed cameras. With over 185 major airports, 22 major ports, 12,000 km of land border, and 20,000 km of coastline, the United States is a large and open country.
 
Border PatrolThe right solution must leverage a variety of fixed and mobile detection systems. Most importantly, the systems that are deployed must be more intelligent, autonomous, and reliable than traditional cameras. A single intelligent sensor can replace dozens of simple cameras by constantly scanning its surroundings for moving objects and threats.

Modern Technology is leading the revolution towards distributed intelligent surveillance by developing systems and algorithms that are small, portable, and autonomous. The 360-degree cameras and a high-speed processing platform deliver unprecedented levels of autonomy in the field. Not only can a single sensor view in 360-degrees, it can now detect a threat and transmit back to a guard station when necessary.

Cameras include advanced features typically only available on huge digital video recorder computers. Image enhancement, object tracking, and recording are just some of the numerous capabilities that smart systems include on-board.
