Topic: Embracing the Complexity of Border Security Networks over Satellite

Looking at world history, borders and territories have been a source of dispute, inter and intra-state conflicts, crime and migration issues. Borders are internationally arbitrated demarcation lines between sovereign states, federated states and other sub-national or international entities (Schengen area, European Community etc.).

This session covers following topics: 

  • Successful border security satellite networks are resilient to changing environments and everyday operational realities such as immigration, conflict
  • Need for a network over satellite that covers all corners of a nation (land, sea and air) and beyond
  • Border security networks connect multiple applications and multiple services to a single satellite platform
  • Exchange of ISR, biometrics, situational awareness, administrative data both at high and low data rates need to be supported

For more inspiration, have a look at this article by Koen Willems in MilSat Magazine.
