PODCAST: How geospatial imagery is aiding US border security, Patrick Stewart, US Border Patrol

Patrick Stewart, US Border Patrol

US Border Patrol’s top priority is to keep terrorists and their weapons from entering the US while welcoming all legitimate travellers and commerce – a role aided by the implementation of geospatial imagery, mobile technology and consistent systems.

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Assistant Chief of the US Border Patrol Patrick Stewart joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss how the US is utilising technology to implement its security directives at the nation’s borders.

Having joined Border Patrol the day following the September 11 attacks, Stewart will share how that event has changed the way in which they operate, share his thoughts on if technology will advance to a point where human interaction is no longer necessary, and discuss how Australia compares to the rest of the world in terms of border protection.
