Customs and Security
The emergence of organised terrorist groups since the end of the 20th Century has meant it is of great importance that states have full control over their own borders. Without this authority, the possibility that a costly and devastating attack may be carried out in the countries interior becomes all the more likely. This will not only be damaging to the target, but also heavily detrimental for the government and society at large. Whilst it may be an arduous task to locate individuals once they have entered the state, perhaps the ideal opportunity to apprehend a suspect is while they are in transit and attempting to evade customs and security officials.
How can Infrared Thermal Cameras assist?
Thermal cameras will allow customs and security personnel to observe large expanses of land in poor visibility and low light conditions so that they may quickly locate a potential suspect. By picking up the high infrared radiation (heat) signature the human body gives off, the user will be capable of seeing the suspect with exceptional clarity.
