Tele­phon­ics MSC: A Tool to Se­cure Bor­ders

SP's LandForces - - TECHNOLOGY -

When the bor­ders are vast, such as in In­dia, de­ploy­ment of hu­man re­sources to man them is next to im­pos­si­ble. Tech­nol­ogy is the an­swer and in de­vel­oped parts of the world they have been used to good ef­fect. Take, for in­stance, the US Cus­toms and Bor­der Pro­tec­tion (CBP) which has suc­cess­fully de­ployed tech­nol­ogy in the south­ern bor­der of the United States. From the desert of the US, south-west to the for­est of the north­ern bor­der or the open wa­ters of the Great Lakes, the mo­bile sur­veil­lance ca­pa­bil­ity (MSC) sys­tems of Tele­phon­ics Cor­po­ra­tion has ef­fec­tively de­tected, iden­ti­fied and tracked items of in­ter­est, help­ing the au­thor­i­ties in se­cur­ing the na­tion.

The ex­pan­sive In­dian bor­ders need to be se­cured, con­sid­er­ing the grow­ing threats from across the bor­ders and mas­sive in­vest­ment in tech­nolo­gies is part of the an­swer.

The Tele­phon­ics MSC is a fully-in­te­grated, rapidly de­ploy­able sur­veil­lance sys­tem, ca­pa­ble of op­er­at­ing ei­ther as a stand-alone sys­tem, pro­vid­ing de­tailed in­for­ma­tion of a se­lected re­gion or net­worked to­gether cre­at­ing a “vir­tual fence”. Sys­tem flex­i­bil­ity al­lows the MSC to be equally ef­fec­tive in all ter­rains and en­vi­ron­ments.

Com­mand and Con­trol

As sur­veil­lance re­quire­ments grow, so does the need for ex­panded com­mand and con­trol (C2) ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Tele­phon­ics in­te­grates the crit­i­cal in­for­ma­tion needed by op­er­a­tors, us­ing state-of-the-art C2 soft­ware. Op­er­a­tors can man­age a wide area of sur­veil­lance with mul­ti­ple tar­gets of in­ter­est, all within the click of a mouse. Proac­tive sur­veil­lance, know­ing where a tar­get is com­ing from and where it is headed, gives the op­er­a­tor the ad­van­tage. In­ter­ven­tions can be co­or­di­nated to the op­er­a­tors’ ad­van­tage based on each in­di­vid­ual threat. Built-in scal­a­bil­ity and com­pat­i­bil­ity pro­vide for sys­tem growth and in­ter­face with legacy sen­sors. The C2 soft­ware also sup­ports a seam­less in­te­gra­tion of new and ex­ist­ing as­sets.

Sup­port and Train­ing

Known as “Best in Class”, Tele­phon­ics pro­vides a com­plete pack­age: tech­nolo­gies, sys­tem com­po­nents, train­ing and main­te­nance sup­port. The de­sign takes into con­sid­er­a­tion re­li­a­bil­ity, en­durance and qual­ity, as re­flected in its Mil 810F test­ing. Un­der­stand­ing the im­por­tance of train­ing to max­imise the ef­fec­tive­ness of the MSC in the field, it pro­vides de­tailed user train­ing for both the C2 soft­ware and sen­sor suite. Op­er­a­tors re­ceive class­room train­ing as well as hands-on field train­ing and sup­port to en­sure a suc­cess­ful start.

One of the high­lights of Tele­phon­ics is it de­signs and im­ple­ments a tai­lor-made in­te­grated lo­gis­tics sup­port and preven­tive main­te­nance pro­gramme that en­sures con­tin­u­ous op­er­a­tion in the harsh­est of con­di­tions. No mat­ter what the en­vi­ron­ment, Tele­phon­ics pro­vides the end-user with an as­sur­ance that the MSC op­er­ates at max­i­mum per­for­mance, pro­vid­ing un­par­al­leled sur­veil­lance cov­er­age.
