Visibility is not just a question of space sensors. Satellites can provide air, helicopter, land, and maritime border patrol data, video and voice communications. This allows large-scale powers to exchange and act as single entity information and photographs. The Australian coasts can be controlled only by satellite connecting a fleet of coast guards and cameraman-fitted surveillance planes, for illicit migration and resource extraction. Also, the Satellite is used to link automatic border surveillance radars to track moving targets on land and sea.
The revolutionized warfare in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). They also work in border surveillance. They remain in the air for long periods by flying via satellite to remote operators and transmit field footage, which essentially expands border control authorities’ jurisdiction for thousands of miles. Drones became so successful on the Southern Frontier of the United States that cocaine traffickers began breaking into their communications to throw them away.
Ironically, another satellite technology was used in the cyber-attack. After entry to the control systems of the drones, the traffickers feed the bogus GSP coordinates of the aircraft to deliver them to the wrong spot in the atmosphere. By transmitting navigation data at 1000 times the capacity of GPS, a new generation of low altitude satellites provides a solution. Satellite technology aims to block people and products at the border but it may be more useful to stop them.
The AIS is a monitoring device used in most ships to classify and locate them, as a matter of maritime law. As vessels are close to the shore, ground stations can receive their signals – however, on the open seas, AIS communicates to the overhead satellites to allow the coastal guards to know of possible problems – including unwanted shipping or migration – long before they are in contact.
On the other hand, India is planning to launch an earth-watching satellite on March 28th, which will provide it with almost real-time imagery of its borders and rapid natural disaster tracking. The rocket places the spaceship in a geosynchronous orbit around 36,000 km above the equator of the Earth, it will then be placed with its onboard propulsion system. Experts also said the geostationary orbit is advantageous because, the satellite will enable the nation to track the Indian earth mass and oceans constantly, particularly its territory, with onboard elevated cameras. Moreover, It will help to track natural hazards, episodic, and incidents quickly.
