Safe and secure borders lie at the heart of a nation’s security. The free and unchecked flow of illegal human and material traffic across land borders has negative effects on everyone bar the criminals and terrorists who benefit from them. Athena has extensive proven long-lasting experience in securing land borders, especially in environments where even small individual breaches can have catastrophic effects, as with terrorism. Securing borders is far more complex than fences and customs posts. Effective border controls are the product of a deep understanding of the nature of the threats, and an ability to implement both the conceptual and practical solutions, such as effective use of intelligence via either surveillance or databases, and the training of personnel to effectively manage and conduct the day-to-day business of border security. No two borders are the same, so every boarder, and even specific parts of borders, require unique tailor made solutions Athena’s solutions and insights are based on first hand actual implementation of addressing national security issues arising from border control, as well as the need to ensure the safe and traceable transit of goods persons and vehicles.
