SAN DIEGO, November 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Elbit Systems of America, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd., will present their capabilities for border security solutions at the IDGA Border Management Conference and Technology Expo on November 7-9, 2011, at the Town & Country Resort and Spa, San Diego, California.

Each day the United States and Border Patrol agents fulfill critical missions in environments of vast and varying terrains along the US border. Seeking to support the agent's mission with proven systems, Elbit Systems of America offers unmanned technologies for air, water, and land-allowing agents to identify any threat, in any terrain, at any time. Keith Traster, Executive Director, Strategic Marketing of Elbit Systems of America, a featured presenter on Conference Day 2, will cover solutions such as the Skylark I LE®, Stingray Mk II, Guardium, SAND and Pearls of Wisdom. In his presentation, titled "Unmanned Border Security Solutions," Traster will present these technologies in the context of an integrated border security solution that allows agents a faster, more accurate response through a layered border protection concept.

Using sensors, radars, and electro-optics combined with unattended ground sensors, unmanned air systems, unmanned ground vehicles and unmanned surface vehicles, the layered border protection concept enhances the agents' ability to respond. By integrating these technologies with communications and a command operating picture (COP), agents are provided detailed information for detecting, tracking, identifying, and classifying items of interest.
