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
