Secure borders with mobile surveillance
February 2019, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products
PureTech Systems recently announced a delivery milestone for the next phase of the Border Patrol’s Mobile Video Surveillance Systems (MVSS) programme. The latest deliveries, consisting of ruggedised Ford F-150 trucks outfitted with telescoping surveillance payloads are being deployed in San Diego, California and will support mobile video surveillance up to 6 miles (about 9.6 km) away.
The MVSS platform uses PureTech Systems’ PureActiv software as its central command and control, providing video intelligence, user interface display and sensor collaboration logic for the surveillance suite, which consists of visible and thermal cameras mounted on a telescoping mast which extend over 10 metres in the air.
In the interview with ABC 10 News, Michael Scappechio, a supervisor with the Border Patrol, said it’s their increased rate of arrests that landed the trucks here, “nearly a 90% increase is significant, that’s going to get attention, that’s going to get resources, that’s going to get manpower, infrastructure and technology.”
PureTech Systems is teamed with Benchmark Electronics to deliver the complete mobile surveillance with the mission to track and identify Items of Interest (IOI) along the US southwest border and other remote surveillance scenarios where rapid mobile deployment is needed. The most recent delivery of the mobile video surveillance solution is not the first, with several systems already being deployed along the border in Texas.
