Internet technology services government contractor CSRA Inc. has been awarded a 3-year contract valued at $45 million to advise U.S. Customs and Border Protection on effective equipment options and efficient deployment methods needed to detect and prevent unlawful travel and trade.
“Proper border control and management is critical in protecting our nation against dangerous people and materials that could potentially harm our citizens,” CSRA Homeland Security Group Executive Vice President Sally Sullivan said. “Our collaborative team of systems engineers and logisticians are helping to drive CBP’s mission by identifying and deploying intuitive, leading-edge technology to secure and protect our borders.”
Under the contract, CSRA will support CBP’s systems engineering, logistics and sustainment, capabilities and requirements divisions in determining the most optimal towers, camera sensors and radar systems to help detect and classify threats to the security of the nation’s borders. The company will also help CBP define requirements, and acquire and deploy the equipment in the field.
