Mobile surveillance towers installed for border protection

ICx Technologies : 09 July, 2008  (Application Story)
America's southern border gains additional protection with the installation of mobile surveillance towers from ICx Technologies
ICx Technologies has received a $4 million order and has begun shipping several Cerberus unmanned mobile surveillance system units to the Southern US border.

ICx' Cerberus unit is a fully integrated mobile surveillance tower that combines advanced, high-resolution radars with thermal and imaging cameras on a common software platform, thus making it easier to identify and track potential intruders.

ICx has been developing Cerberus jointly with the US Army, RDECOM, CERDEC Night Vision, Electronic Sensors Directorate and Customs and Border Patrol. The win means that ICx is the first company to successfully deploy mobile surveillance system technology along a portion of the Southern border's "virtual fence."

"Border Patrol agents face tough challenges in making our borders safer. Technology, deployed well, can play an important part in assisting our agents in making that happen," said Adam Strange, president of ICx Tactical Platforms. "We are glad to be an integral part of Customs and Border Patrol's focus, and of being the first to provide them with a working solution to this important challenge."
