In this context, Greece accelerated the construction of a steel fenced wall 26.5 kilometers long and 4.5 meters high in the Farecik region, at a cost of 63 million euros. The goal is to have the system in question by the end of the year. The wall is expected to be completed in the next few months. Also in Meriç, maintenance and repair work has been completed on the 10.3 kilometer metal fence, which was built in 2012 and stretches from Kastanies to the village of Nea Vissa via Pazarkule. The fence was badly damaged during last year’s refugee crisis.
DISTANCE OF 15 KILOMETERS
In addition to 11 modern radars and cameras, funded by the European Union (EU) and purchased for 15 million euros, tests of 2 LRAD (Long Range Acoustic) mobile devices that can even cause deafness have also started. Data obtained from radars and cameras with a surveillance range of up to 15 kilometers in real time on Turkish territory are transferred to control centers located in the outposts of Sofulu, Farecik, Demoteka and Tihero in the border region.

LRAD DEVICE WITH TWO KILOMETERS OF REACH
Sound waves from the LRAD mobile device, also known as a “sound ball”, can travel up to 2 kilometers. 300 meters are enough for the sound to disturb. The device creates ringing in the ears, which causes confusion and panic in the masses. If the decibel is kept high in the sound waves coming out of LRAD devices, it can cause permanent deafness. Meanwhile, the EU, which spent € 3.7 billion on technology and research after the refugee crisis in 2015, is testing 10 different security systems to determine if they will work at the Maritsa border. Among the systems in question is a lie detector, a device that virtually removes trees and greenery in areas where refugees may hide, and a biometric identifier that records the pattern of hand veins with a scanner. palm so that refugees can be found. .
