Chile Turns to Military's Technology for Border Security

To protect its international borders, Chile relies mainly on manned outposts. But they're no match against a formidable combination of smuggling and illegal crossings in the northern reaches of the country. Government leaders now are turning to the armed forces for help, specifically for electronic sensors that can be brought to bear on the border. The border security program seeks to coordinate agencies and increase the use of technology to combat criminal activity. That includes military units that can gather information and coordinate with civilian authorities. Already, the armed forces have played a role in border patrol. The Navy, in particular, is tasked with policing the nation's oceans and has a key role in the new program. Drugs, weapons, stolen cars, cigarettes and even human trafficking filter through the largely undefended and uncontrolled border with Peru and Bolivia.

The growing concerns, and subsequent research and development have resulted in the development of newer protective clothing concepts – that entails a complete makeover. The availability of better material, like fiber and composite material prepared with advanced technology, has enabled the companies – involved in the manufacturing of high quality Body Armor that fits into every job requirement and specifications perfectly – to come out with practical solutions.
