Paper Abstract

The SBInet program to secure our border with physical fences and electronic surveillance uses Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS) to detect illegal crossing activity. The presentation will discuss the role of UGS in SBInet for cueing tower based surveillance systems and as an independent surveillance system in areas where tower surveillance is impractical. The presentation will provide a status of UGS integration into the SBInet Common Operating Picture (COP). McQ as the supplier of UGS for SBInet has supported the system integration with radars and long range imagers. McQ has worked with DHS and the Border Patrol in refining the UGS surveillance application and in training for their use. The presentation will address new UGS technology for border monitoring.
