Airbus H125 helicopters are equipped with an optoelectronic surveillance system that allows monitoring the state border, including in infrared light. The equipment allows not only recording video in high quality, but also transmitting it with the help of satellite equipment. Helicopters are also equipped with a warning system with loudspeakers and special searchlights, which can be used synchronously with the system of optoelectronic surveillance.
