An autonomous monitoring solution for securing the EU’s external border

Project Radio2S is being developed as a deployable full-scale border monitoring system for the early detection and prevention of illegal activities over the EU’s external border (air, sea, land, or river) where smugglers and traffickers use the latest radio transmission technologies for illegal transporting.

  • Enhanced device identification and localization

    Installed receivers can detect vast ranges of radio frequencies and provide localization of most radio emitting devices.

  • AI-enhanced radio emiters localization

    Embedded artificial intelligence technologies increase radar localization capabilities and improve RF signal analysis.

  • Advanced evidence collection

    An automated toolset for the collection of evidence and report delivery in accordance with the law for legal proceedings.

A complete external border surveillance system

This fully functional system will be able to identify and differentiate between natural activities and those of illegal trafficking by scanning a wide range of radio frequencies.

Contraband smugglers and human traffickers that use radio signal transmitting devices and attempt to get close to the EU’s external ASLR* border will set off the system’s alarm which will visualize the location of illegal activities to end users.

Scope and technical goals

Our objective with Radio2S is to address the challenges that current technologies and systems face in order to strengthen EU's border security. This begins with enhancing the identification and localization capabilities of AI systems, innovating new technologies to be used as solutions for the monitoring of borders, and providing a legally compliant evidence collection toolset. In addition, we want to create a framework for those working on the EU’s external borders for the effortless deployment of our system.

  • Self-contained, scalable components from modularized multi-domain sensor applications
  • Alarm visualization over a C2 system to end users with a systems integration framework
  • An autonomous emitter detection and localization over multiple RF ranges capability
  • An automated and streamlined collection of evidence and report deliveries toolset
  • Improved RF signal analyzation capabilities in an embeddable AI system

Industry-led from day one

Radio2S was developed out of a need expressed by the industry. Over the course of a year, it has been developed as a joint effort by LMT, the State Border Guard, and the Electronic Communications Office of Latvia – the local frequency regulators.
