Solution Found to Faulty Border Sensors
IDENTISEIS -- The Missing Link in Border Security
|American Patrol Report -- October 10
The recent tragedy that led to the death of U.S. Border Patrol agent Ivie was due in part to a ground sensor that sent out a false alarm.
Problems with ground sensors have plagued the Department of Homeland Security for years. Now, an Arizona company, Border Technology, Inc. (BTI), has found a solution. They call it IDENTISEIS ® the identification of border intruders using seismic technology.
IDENTISEIS® solves the false alarm problem by linking sensors (geophones) together - giving the system a greater range -- 600 feet vs. 30 feet. This greater range allows the computer's algorithm more time to decide if a signal is coming from a human or something else -- greatly reducing false alarms.
(An early version of IDENTISEIS® was being tested by the non-profit, American Border Patrol, as the Sonic Barrier.)
IDENTISEIS® uses the same hardware used by oil companies to search for oil deep underground. The software is entirely different, however, as the system looks for surface signals instead.
IDENTISEIS® sensors are connected by a continuous cable, providing seamless coverage along the border. The entire system, including seismographs and a satellite radio link, is solar powered. With the exception of solar panels (every half mile) and the radio link (every five miles), the entire system is buried underground.
Mike King, VP of BTI, says the entire border with Mexico could be secured with IDENTISEIS® for a fraction of what DHS spent on the failed virtual fence.
IDENTISEIS® will be featured at the Border Management Conference and Technology Expo next week in El Paso.
