Description: The Digital Services at the Border (DSaB) Programme was launched to deliver a new generation of Border Security Systems including replacing the Warnings Index (WI) and Semaphore (S4). The primary benefits of delivering DSaB are to: enhance the security of the UK; gather and act on data from those people and entities crossing the border, both inbound and out; and provide timely and accurate data to those who need to access/use it.
