Israel’s Elbit Systems wins US$145m US Customs and Border Protection project for Arizona

Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that a US subsidiary has won a US$145 million contract for border-surveillance technology from the US Department of Homeland Security.

 

The company is participating in the Integrated Fixed Tower project for the Customs and Border Protection. The defense electronics company beat some of the top U.S. government contractors, including Lockheed Martin Corp., General Dynamics Corp. and Raytheon Co.

 

The observation towers to be installed along the US-Mexican border include sensors for spotting, tracking, and classifying intelligence across the border, as well as command and control centers.

 

The Homeland Security contract calls for the company to deliver surveillance equipment, such as radars and cameras, mounted on fixed towers to help agents detect and track “items of interest” along the border.
