Frontex announces competition for industry to develop technology allowing for detection of small aircraft used for cross-border crime

Frontex will hold a competition for technical solutions to detect low-flying objects. Border guards need to be able to detect low-flying objects crossing the border and intercept them or track. Three companies will be selected. Frontex and national officials will assess the performance of the proposed technologies. The final scoring will also take into account the solution’s cost efficiency and its foot print size and complexity. The winner will receive a prize of EUR 250000; the second place 150000 and third place is 50000. Important dates: Public restricted procurement: July 2019; Selection of participants: November 2019; Live trial: April 2020. For info rdu-technology-assessment@frontex.europa.eu

Managing International Borders Balancing Security with the Licit Flow of People and Goods

The concept of border management hinges on the tension between the need to prevent undesirable people and goods from crossing borders and the economic vitality that a country gains through trade and travel. Building on the concept of border management, this Perspective proposes opportunities to strengthen security while simultaneously improving the flow of licit travelers and goods through national policies, programs, regulations, and activities.

Security Research and Innovation

Security and the economy are top concerns for Europeans. The security research funded by the European Union under Horizon 2020 brings both improved security and better industrial performance. Focused research enhances security by developing technologies and tools that meet the real needs of those on the front line of dealing with threats such as terrorism, cybercrime, weapons and human trafficking, as well as natural disasters. Security research is helping European industry stand its ground against strong competition from the United States and Asia. More, however, needs to be done in this area and the European Commission is working to promote better take-up by industry of research results.
