Ground Based Technologies Fact Sheet


The Ground Based Technologies program is a multi-year effort within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)  Science and Technology Directorate that will improve situational awareness of U.S. terrestrial borders between the ports of entry by pursuing technologies such as radars, imagers, and unattended ground sensors for use by DHS components. This improved situational awareness will result in higher interdiction rates of illegal activity through higher detection rates, fewer false alarms and better utilization of border patrol agents and assets.
