With the dawn of the era of globalization in the twentieth century, nations learned how to respond to increasing security challenges including drug and human trafficking, money laundering, and illegal immigration. Events of the twenty-first century have added terrorism and global pandemic to this list – and this matrix of interlocking threats grows ever more complex.

The Annual Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community, issued on 13 April 2021, details how the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences will change the picture of national security for many years to come, not just for the U.S. but for all nations worldwide. The most immediate impact will be economic instability and humanitarian crises, creating widespread desperation among marginalized and disenfranchised people. Surges in migration, the collapse of governments, and internal conflicts loom. These challenges add up to a need for more efficient and accurate security systems at every border.

In an age when safety and trust are more important than ever, Ground Controls steps in: using state-of-the-art technology and a visionary approach to data analysis, our intelligence-driven systems help to mitigate all these evolving risks with unparalleled acuity and responsiveness.

Our strategy combines big data mining and predictive analysis models to aid in the identification of existential security threats before they present themselves on the ground, and to allow border control officers to respond swiftly and decisively to each passenger’s arrival in real time.

Intelligent Border Control Solutions begin with the best practices of current security screening systems, but we build them to go above and beyond. Each bespoke system includes all necessary elements from software to hardware, draws upon a vast scope of passenger data from an unprecedented range of sources, and is designed in collaboration with clients to address the unique concerns at each border crossing.

Better can be faster: our predictive analytics distribute the work of border control officers across time in a streamlined process that facilitates traffic flow at airports, sea ports, and land border crossings. Meanwhile, our business model distributes the cost of security among passengers, adjusted to the volume of travel, thus allowing clients to welcome the tide of global travel and exchange with confidence and ease.

As an entirely novel way to approach the traditional point-of-entry screening process, Ground Controls is at the forefront of a revolution of efficiency, accuracy, and trust in the field.
