Inmarsat and Securiport Join Forces to Deliver New Border Security Service

Inmarsat and Securiport have joined forces to develop new solutions for civil aviation security, immigration control and border management, which will be made available to government customers around the world.

Border management and security is an increasing challenge for governments in an era of frequent international travel and migration. To address issues of security and disease control, Securiport will combine its proprietary Integrated Immigration Control System (IICS) and Intelligent Information Management System (IIMS), equipped with ground sensor technology, with Inmarsats highly robust and globally available satellite constellations.

 The new services would be offered in conjunction with the Inmarsat-4 network, used by government and commercial organisations across the world for mission-critical applications, as well as the companys latest constellation, Global Xpress, which offers high-speed broadband connectivity on land, sea and in the air.

For governments, the service will provide access to real-time data analytics and risk management tools virtually anywhere within their territories, while simultaneously providing a comprehensive detection solution for the management of land borders.

 Inmarsats mobile satellite communications network will enable remote border management operations to be linked in real-time to a countrys national IICS/IIMS, significantly enhancing security and immigration efficiency at the same time.

We are honoured to join forces with Inmarsat through this strategic collaboration, said Dr. Attila Freska, Securiports Chief Operating Officer. Through the establishment of this relationship, Inmarsat and Securiport will be uniquely positioned to provide enhanced border security solutions to our government clients and heightened safety for travellers.

Inmarsats President of Global Government, Andy Start, added, The international government sector is becoming increasingly reliant on new interoperable technologies to aid in their border protection operations. The Inmarsat Global Government team actively sources market-leading technology providers such as Securiport, to provide integrated and targeted solutions for the specific requirements of the government sector. We are very excited about the relationship with Securiport and the increased capabilities it will bring to our government clients in securing their borders and assets.
