Threats on internal state security have multiplied over the last decades, with the rise of digitalization, networks, terrorism, new methods of aggression... Thales masters the necessary knowledge and technologies to answer several key questions of homeland security.
Scattered, diffuse, unpredictable threats
Threats States are facing are growing more and more difficult to detect. Terrorism and trafficking operate in decentralized networks ; operating modes vary from the simplest to the most sophisticated – cyber-attacks, chemical and bacteriological risks...
Thanks to its expertise in video surveillance, data analysis and integrated security solutions, Thales is able to optimally support States in their fight against these new risks. Homeland security simultaneously requires:
- Collecting information;
- Processing this information and extracting the relevant data;
- Getting different systems and organizations to converge and work together.
Thales solutions are built on a global overview of homeland security issues and the mastering of intelligent tools.
In the race for anticipation implied by homeland security policies, two elements are to be stressed: reliable intelligence; and efficient surveillance of movements across the territory border.
Homeland security also relies on effective and efficient border control, apt to identify dangerous or unwanted intrusions, evaluate them on the spot, and intercept them when necessary. Thales offers tailor-made solutions based on a thorough analysis of the characteristics of the border, country and threats involved.
The “ears” of Internal security: intelligence
To ensure reliable, precise intelligence, Thales offers States solutions designed to face a double challenge:
- Sorting the relevant information in the overload of data, and make the distinction between false alarms and actual dangers, using artificial-intelligence-based tools;
- Ensure coordination between the different departments involved, so that intelligence is shared, accessible to those who need it in due time, and therefore useful.
