Secure your borders with intelligent end-to-end solutions from FLIR

Intelligent Surveillance Border security and coastal surveillance are 24/7 operations that can’t afford downtime or periods of reduced readiness. Guarding against illegal immigration, smuggling, and terrorism demands reliable long-range threat detection and positive identification of potential threats all day, all night, and in all conditions. Whether your primary targets are small boats on the water, or people crossing borders on foot, FLIR’s high performance cameras and radars can give you the early warning and threat assessment you need to respond efficiently and effectively. With industry standard interfaces, FLIR components are easy to integrate with the command and control solution you desire to create the rapid deployment solution you need. Inbound threats come from land, on the sea, and in the air. With FLIR’s powerful border surveillance solutions, earlier detection and intelligent threat assessment mean greater coverage and faster response without increasing workload.


The mission of securing a nation’s borders is challenging for many reasons, chief among them is the sheer size of the area that needs to be effectively monitored and patrolled. Vehicle-based platforms need to be able to operate independently, while still integrating with a central command-and-control facility so that sector commanders can reposition their border security assets as the tactical situation demands. FLIR’s border vehicle solutions do all this and more with modular, configurable sensors to match the mission


Detecting a potential threat is just the first step. Once an object of interest is detected, it must be identified, and its threat level assessed. Without clear, long-range visual analysis of detected threats on land or water, operators can’t discern between false or nuisance alarms and alerts that require interdiction. As the world leader in thermal imaging, FLIR extends your vision with crisp, clear thermal and visible imagery to give you the information you need to respond.

Command & Control

All of the long-range imagers and radars won’t help you keep your borders secure if field operators and sector commanders can’t view the information they provide and coordinate the movement of forces accordingly. FLIR’s C2 software allows you to control and network multiple cameras and radars to operate efficiently and effectively over wide areas.


FLIR’s handheld imagers are lightweight, powerful, and easy to use, making those responsible for border surveillance more capable and more agile on their frontiers than ever before. FLIR’s Recon ® series of thermal binoculars and monoculars can combine longer range imaging with enhanced features like hot-swappable batteries, laser rangefinders, a digital magnetic compass, and up to 10x optical zoom for target identification at greater standoff range.
