Border Control

Space Data’s balloon-borne communications capabilities provide an economical solution to filling gaps in repeater coverage along the northern and southern international borders of the United States. A proven capability, Space Data’s SkySite® technology can support border control efforts with both VHF voice repeater and 900 MHz data services including GPS-based asset tracking. The responsive nature of the balloon-borne platform means a targeted communications footprint can be activated over an area without terrestrial coverage within 30 minutes of identifying its need, or an economical 24/7 system can be operated to consistently tackle coverage gaps in border zones.
