Semi-autonomous border surveillance platform combining next generation unmanned aerial vehicles with ultra-high-resolution multi-sensor surveillance payload

Project description

New technology to protect EU borders

With over 42 000 km of coastline and around 9 000 km of land borders, monitoring the EU’s external borders is a complex job that requires multidimensional collaborations and new technologies. To support border surveillance applications, the EU-funded BorderUAS project is developing a multi-role lighter-than-air unmanned aerial vehicle with an ultra-high resolution multi-sensor surveillance payload. The remote sensing payload will include a synthetic aperture radar (SAR), laser detection and ranging (LADAR), shortwave/longwave infrared (SWIR/LWIR) and acoustic cameras for direct target detection as well as optical and hyperspectral cameras for indirect detection (from vegetation disturbance). The technology will be tested by police based along illegal border crossings in Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus.
