Paper Abstract

Border Defense remains an urgent priority in the coming years. In order to meet DHS goals for 24/7 border surveillance capability, long range state of the art infrared imagers are needed to cover large area's economically. The long range gives both greater detection range, and therefore more response time, as well as a reduced number of units to cover the same area thus reducing infrastructure cost. L-3 Communications Cincinnati Electronics is a premier supplier of longrange infrared imagers and has a portfolio of solutions with unmatched detection ranges. The sensitivity and resolution of these instruments offer a wide range of applications spaces including both Northern and Southern borders. As part of an integrated systems level solution, potentially including technology to control the environment such as atmospheric turbulence corrections, these imagers can enable high confidence border security.
