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. Radio2S project has incorporated representative Law Enforcement Agencies from six European countries - Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Greece, Moldova, Bosnia and Hercegovina.
Installed receivers can detect vast ranges of radio frequencies and provide localization of most radio emitting devices.
Embedded artificial intelligence technologies increase localization capabilities and improve RF signal analysis.
An automated toolset for the collection of evidence and report delivery in accordance with the law for legal proceedings.
Radio2S will develop new and innovative AI enhanced technologies for advanced and autonomous monitoring of borders and providing a legally compliant evidence collection toolset to strengthen EU's border control.
In addition, Radio2S will create a legal framework and new technological solution for those working on the EU’s external borders for the effortless deployment of our system. See a visualization of the project’s vision in the video bellow.
Radio2S project will demonstrate an innovative technology deployment in timely and cost-efficient manner on external border between EU, Russia and Belorussia and then beyond. Project will research and develop advanced technologies for sensing, detecting, and localizing of radio frequency emitting devices used for smuggling activities at the EU green borders therefore creating new scientific understanding.
Motivation and emphasis will be on technological solution within legal framework in terms of human rights regarding data privacy and free movement.
Project will create:
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.
Latvian Border Guards expressed interest in radio monitoring solutions to help catch smugglers
