Port and Maritime Security
With thousands of cargo and passenger terminals worldwide covering both land and sea, securing these critical areas is a challenge. Many ships calling at ports are foreign-owned with foreign crews. Container ships are a significant focus of seaport security because they are potentially vulnerable to terrorist infiltration. The threats range from theft and vandalism to more severe threats that endanger property and lives, such as terrorist attacks on critical infrastructure. As such, authorities employ a variety of security measures to ensure all areas — from high traffic zones to more remote locations — are effectively monitored. Thermal imaging cameras operate irrespective of prevailing weather conditions, providing accurate visuals in challenging weather and total darkness.
