A New Security Solution for the Canada-USA Border

Share Article

HGH Infrared Systems offers a reliable security solution for border surveillance.

SecureTech 2012 was held in Ottawa, Ontario. HGH Infrared Systems was excited to take part in the exhibition as well as meet defense and security professionals operating in the Canadian market. Although slightly affected by “Super Storm Sandy”, attendance was great and there was constant traffic at the HGH booth. Many visitors were impressed with the unique and valuable solution the IR Revolution 360 provides.

The topic of interest around the show was the U.S. – Canada border initiative – Beyond the Border. This effort is focused on the collaboration between agencies and countries along the vast and very difficult to manage boundary. New technologies that will help simplify these efforts are of the utmost importance and communication is the real key to success. Over the next couple of years, the U.S. and Canadian governments have committed to work hand in hand to expand their interoperability as well as their cooperation efforts.

The IR Revolution 360 offers a value set of capabilities for this border security mission. By nature, thermal imaging provides day/night imaging and is minimally effected by weather conditions. As compared to the U.S. – Mexico border, the northern border poses a difficult challenge as its weather is inconsistent and harsh at times. Much of the border is along or within waterways, which provide illegal operations a clear path to travel across. The IR Revolution has been optimized for detection of threats on and around water and with the 360 degree imaging capability, far less systems would be needed to cover vast, wide open travel lanes. For these reasons and more, the IR Revolution 360 is looked upon as a needed tool for U.S. and Canadian security forces.

Over the next few years the northern border will be a focused effort of each government and with cooperation and integration of data as a top goal, both sides expect more effective and efficient operations. HGH Infrared Systems expects to be a part of that success.
