Systems Engineering

Managing complexity


Thanks to its long experience in designing and deploying Border & Coastal Surveillance systems over the years, BATS has developed a modern engineering approach to support customers in the successful development of their solutions.


This methodology is a step-by-step approach with iterative loops covering the following key phases:

  • Thorough analysis with end-users of the mission, local context and organisation
  • Simulation and modelling supported by dedicated advanced tools
  • System and sub-systems engineering specifications
  • Fine selection of the components such as sensors types and models
  • Detailed site survey conducted with customer
  • Pilot network implementation for field testing with future operators of the system
  • Full deployment of the overall system
  • Operational support to end-users during preliminary phases
