Securing borders against the illegal transportation of drugs, weapons and dangerous individuals has been an elusive goal for the US and many countries abroad. But today that goal is becoming a reality. Ultra high resolution night vision sensors are deployed remotely in fixed towers and on mobile platforms. These all seeing sensors are coupled with highly specialized analytics to detect undesired activity and remotely stream video over secure communications links. The real-time video provides enhanced safety, reduced cost and more effectively helps to stop border incursions.

Embedded video products from AMP play a key role in several widely deployed systems, providing persistent surveillance to help secure borders and reduce risk to Border Patrol Agents.
