NESTOR – aN Enhanced pre-frontier intelligence picture to Safeguard The EurOpean boRders

Europe’s borders are under significant pressure by migration flows, armed conflicts in surrounding territories, smuggling of goods and humans and transnational crime. However, monitoring the routes used by criminal networks is prevented by geographical challenges, such as dense forests, high mountains, rough lands, sea and river areas. The EU-funded NESTOR project will demonstrate an entirely functional, next-generation, comprehensive border surveillance system offering pre-frontier situational awareness beyond sea and land borders. The system is based on the concept of the European integrated border management and relies on optical, thermal imaging and radio frequency spectrum analysis technologies fed by an interoperable sensors network.
