There is no single answer for situational awareness along international boundaries. New technology, however, is providing new possibilities for enhanced situational awareness and autonomous border surveillance.
Fixed autonomous towers with multiple sensors anchored by radar maintain awareness for locations with known unauthorized crossings. Truly man-portable rapid radar deployment kits are a force multiplier and enhance agent safety.
A well-informed, situationally aware border security force is both technologically possible and surprisingly affordable.
Self-sufficient remote towers contain solar power cells, batteries, and communications capabilities enabling full-time surveillance of remote border areas. Radar is the ideal sensor to anchor the platform and cue other sensors for signal confirmation or identification.
