Port Security

The nature of free trade, international exchange, and open commerce produces a myriad of challenges to port and transoceanic security. Complex shipping systems, vastly different levels of scale, a flood of signals, and the need to keep traffic moving create a complicated security environment.

At FLIR we understand potential threats to port security and the need for control in a fluid operating environment. Contact us to arrange a demonstration of our latest approaches and integrated solutions to harbor security issues, shipping container integrity, explosives detection, and narcotics trace detection.
