AEROSTAR: The Future of Integrated Surveillance Systems

Top 10 Border Security Solutions Companies - 2022

With the increasing globalization and the rising threat of terrorism, the border security forces are bolstering their efforts to tackle any illegal trespassing of people and goods across countries. Cutting-edge technologies, such as IoT, blockchain, biometrics, data analytics, 5G, and machine learning are aiding in this effort to help border security officials shorten their response time. Riding on the innovations bandwagon, the border security market is projected to reach $69.8 million by 2028, at a CAGR of 6.2 percent.

The growth is majorly driven by the need to reduce territorial conflicts and geopolitical instabilities. Especially now, government agencies want to bolster more agile border management practices that respond to events and emerging threats in near real-time. With lower latency of 5G networks and connected vehicles and surveillance systems, border agents can become aware of threats, analyze information quicker, and take actions more efficiently.

To put the spotlight on such key developments in the industry, Aerospace and Defense Review illustrates how companies are leveraging the latest technologies to augment the border security operations and enhance the international relationship between the border-sharing countries. Adding perspective to this are the featured thought leadership articles, including the viewpoints of John Fant, Vice President of Advanced Program Development at Lockheed Martin Space, Mark Hatfield, Assistant Director and Chief Security Officer at Miami International Airport, and Conn Doherty, Vice President of Future Aircraft Systems and Technology at Raytheon Intelligence & Space. The spokespeople shed light on the recent border security innovation, transportation security administration, and the role of drones in border security.

In this edition of Aerospace and Defense Review magazine, we also bring to you the story of some of the top border security solution providers that deliver the best outcomes for their clients. In the list, Raven Aerostar, particularly, stands out for its development of high-altitude radar systems for both civilian and military applications.
