EADS North America and George Mason University have partnered to build analytical tools for border security that incorporate social, cultural, behavioral and organizational aspects of interactions among border security forces, smugglers and the population and represent integrated technology architectures made up of fixed and mobile sensor and surveillance networks. These tools provide critical capabilities that influence border security operations, planning, analysis and training. The authors present the results of the first sprint of their effort, demonstrating the feasibility of social simulation for the security of the Southwestern U.S. border.
