Integrated Fixed Towers (IFTs) are fixed surveillance assets that provide long-range persistent surveillance, detecting and identifying items of interest and enabling Border Patrol agents to respond more efficiently to border incursions. Remote Video Surveillance Systems (RVSS) are another fixed technology asset used in select areas along the Southwest and Northern borders providing persistent surveillance as well as Mobile Vehicle Surveillance Systems (MVSS) providing mobile surveillance equipment CBP also uses Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS), which provide short-range persistent surveillance. Additionally, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are increasingly instrumental in CBP's layered and integrated approach to border security. UAS and P-3 aircraft are equipped with technology that provides full-motion video capture and provides real time and forensic analysis. This advanced detection and communication system enables CBP to disseminate images and other sensor data to operational users in real-time, increasing response effectiveness and speed. Perhaps the most important advancements come in the area of data integration and exploitation. Downlink technology, paired with the BigPipe system, allows AMO to provide a video feed and situational awareness to its law enforcement partners in real-time. In addition, the Minotaur mission integration system will allow multiple aircraft to share information from multiple sources, providing a never before seen level of air, land, and sea domain awareness. Finally, CBP's footprint is expanding as we push our border security operations outward. A prime example: CBP's Preclearance program, which provides for the strategic stationing of CBP's most effective counterterrorism asset – a trained U.S. law enforcement professional – at points of departure to protect Commissioner Kerlikowske speaks with Air and Marine Agents regarding security preparations before Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, CA.
