Tel-a-viv. 24 August 2020. Elbit Systems of America has successfully integrated data supplied by Sintela’s fiber optics-based Linear Ground Detection Systems (LGDS) into the Elbit Systems’ TORCH™ Command & Control system used by the United States Border Patrol.

Sintela’s LGDS – called Onyx – provides surface and subterranean surveillance and threat detection in support of the Border Wall System (BWS), along America’s southern border.

The LGDS provides an added layer of security to the steel-and-concrete constructed physical border wall. Elbit Systems of America is prepared to deliver and install the innovative LGDS system that automatically detects and identifies threats, using machine learning.

“Aided by the TORCH™ system’s autonomy and artificial intelligence, Border Patrol Agents will be able to more safely and efficiently perform their national security duties,” said Joel Friederich, Elbit Systems of America’s Vice President for C4I and Homeland Security Systems. “We are pleased to partner with Sintela, making Elbit Systems of America now the exclusive U.S. distributor of their market-leading and fully-compliant LGDS system.”
