Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Protection Proposal for US Mexican Border

Market Intel Group : 25 February, 2010  (Technical Article)
MiG takes a look at the use of UAV equipment for border security as Texan Governor calls for the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for the protection of Mexican border
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Protection Proposal for US Mexican Border
Texas Governor Rick Perry has called for the Federal Government to provide his state with a border security UAV. 'Why not fly them from Brownsville to El Paso?' Perry asked, adding: 'The federal government has been an abject failure at sealing our international border. '

The border-state governor wants to see another Predator B UAV added to the three Predators that currently fly border security duty along the Arizona-Mexico border. Given the recent collapse of the US Border Patrol's Secure Border Initiative virtual fence project, UAVs are more important than ever.

The governor may have reached a different conclusion regarding the type and/or quantity of UAVs he needs had he read the latest UAV market and technologies research report by Market Intel Group (MiG): 'Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for Border Security - Global Market & Technologies Outlook - 2010-2015'.

This new report details the coming technology revolution in border security operations. It also describes how an integrated Operating Concept can optimize aerial sensors, surveillance towers, border agents and human intelligence capabilities into a combined synergistic border threat mitigation network.

Today, border security capabilities are deployed and used haphazardly, mostly as independent systems. The US Border Patrol, for example, manually combines information from UAVs, towers, buried sensors and border agents, if it combines those inputs at all. The agency is working on a single data fusion capability. But, even then, it will still leave human operators to manually make sense of multiple inputs over very large areas. Most non-US border security agencies also do not yet posses the concept and/or technologies require to properly integrate sensors and users in real time.

Note: The US Border Patrol schematic shown in the illustration represents their desired network, not today's reality. Even this future view shows border agents isolated from most sensors with no central integration.

MiG's Border Security report, the first of three integrated UAV market/technologies forecasts, provides insight that may help users and vendors make optimal use of available and evolving technologies (both platforms and payloads), including Operating Concepts and collision avoidance technologies that must be implemented to facilitate this revolution. Vendors familiar with these developments are likely to be in a competitive position in emerging markets in Central Asia, South America, the Caribbean region, and along the sea lanes of South Asia. Such vendors may also be ready with competitive offerings when congested airspace opens to UAVs in the US and Europe.

The report identifies, analyzes and forecasts these topics, among others:

* Global UAV Procurement Forecast - by Region - 2010-2015
* Global General and Border Security UAV Procurement Forecast - by Region - 2010-2015
* Global Border Security - UAV Procurement Forecast - by Type- 2010- 2015
* Global Border Security UAV - Market Forecast - by Type - 2010-2015
* Global Border Security UAV - Operations & Maintenance Forecast - by Type - 2010-2015
* Border Security UAVs - Operating Concept
* Border Security UAVs - Sensor & Radio Coverage
* How to Sell Border Security UAVs

"Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for Border Security - Global Market & Technologies Outlook - 2010-2015" also provides much needed insight on these issues:

* Filling gaps in today's UAV offerings (focus on unmet demand)
* Creating the right partnerships to offer complete border security capabilities
* Learning the language of border security so as to make those offers effectively
* Creating effective presentations with specific data and high resolution graphics (included)
* Approaching those nations with border security problems that may be solved with the right UAV capabilities
