EC proposes common border surveillance system

Brussels, Belgium: The European Commission (EC) proposed European Border Surveillance (EUROSUR) to enhance internal coordination between member states in the fight against illegal immigration and also to improve the combat other serious crimes such as trafficking in drugs and human trafficking.
Under the proposed surveillance system, exchange of operational data and the use of modern surveillance technology which facilitates real time satellite imagery between national border surveillance authorities, is compulsory. The system will cost approximately EUR 338 million between 2011 and 2020. The EU executive expects the system will be operational from October 2013.
