Border Patrol

Telescopic Mast and Tower Solutions for Border Patrol

America’s borders cover thousands of miles of unforgiving terrain, and the Border Patrol needs every advantage possible to keep them secure. The Border Patrol’s mission requires a high level of situational awareness, but topographical features like ridgelines, mountaintops and valleys make it challenging for agents to communicate. If officers are unable to share information with their colleagues, they’ll be unable to make the operational decisions necessary to complete their objectives and keep the country secure.

At Aluma, we bridge the gap. We produce border patrol technology and equipment designed to provide reliable surveillance and communications support anywhere you need them. We build our border security towers for rapid deployment. You can tow them, airlift them via helicopter, fly them in a cargo aircraft, place them in a shipping container or load them onto a flatbed truck. Once positioned, just two agents can set up any of our border control tower and mast trailers in under 15 minutes.

Our Border Control Tower and Mast Systems

Our border security towers can handle the hottest sun and coldest snow. We manufacture all of our equipment using high-grade materials that stand up against the elements. Each system is customizable to meet your needs, and we can coat yours with military-grade paint for added concealment in the field.

TM-12 Small Mobile Towers

Our TM-12 border security tower is our lightest and most compact model, but it includes many of the features that come with our larger systems. These towers are small enough to tow with a car. Configurations with 35-foot or 50-foot standard and heavy-duty masts are available.

TM51-20 Small Portable Towers

The TM51-20 is a mobile surveillance tower for border protection designed to travel over rugged terrain. This system is one of the most versatile and most popular we have in our lineup. The TM51-20 is capable of supporting towers up to 100 feet tall.

TM51-35 Mobile Trailer Towers

TM51-35 open trailers pair with our larger line of aluminum crank-up towers, including 50-foot and 100-foot options. This system also has a dual-axle trailer with more than enough space to store large radio cabinets, an optional generator, fuel tanks and accessories.

TM53-70 Self-Supporting Towers

The self-contained TM53-70 border control tower and mast system is the same model used by troops in the Middle East. This border security tower is one of our most innovative designs and features a built-in aluminum tower that you can raise anywhere between 50 and 106 feet.

TM54-80 Mobile Tower Systems

The TM54-80 telescoping tower system is the newest in our lineup. This system is compatible with different tower setups to meet your requirements. You can configure yours to include any of our TU unguyed towers or guyed towers from our extra-heavy-duty and extra-extra-heavy-duty lines.
