Augmenting land and maritime surveillance systems for complete domain awareness
The unique geography of Latin America provides a number of significant challenges for intelligence and surveillance operations in the region. Vast, porous borders, extensive riverine systems, and substantial EEZ responsibilities all pose issues for persistent surveillance and accurate situational awareness. When coupled with the challenges posed by a highly active network of narcotics traffickers, arms smugglers and organized criminals, it is easy to understand why reconnaissance and surveillance systems are receiving such a focus from South American nations over the next five years.
With the Brazilian Ministry of Defence expected to announce the winner of the first phase of the coveted SisGAAz contract in October, we are entering into a crucial period for surveillance in the region. This is alongside the continued procurement efforts of the Brazilian Army’s SISFRON program and the recent announcement that the Peruvian Armed Forces SIVAN project has received funding to begin their $1 billion acquisition efforts.
