US Border Protection to Use Elbit Systems Towers

Second Successful Deployment in Arizona

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has accepted an Elbit Systems of America Integrated Fixed Tower (IFT) border security system for operation in the Douglas, AZ area of responsibility (AOR). This marks the company’s second successful deployment of the system, the first being in the Nogales, AZ AOR.

As the system integrator, Elbit Systems of America furnishes the sensor towers with radar, day/night cameras and C2 software, which correlates sensor information to provide a single operating picture. Information from all the towers is networked into Border Patrol Station C2 centres, which increases situational awareness for agents. The IFT’s high reliability and proven contractor logistics support provides CBP with 24/7 surveillance coverage and with a platform to integrate existing and future sensors to improve border protection and agent safety.

We achieved this important milestone by working closely with CBP and understanding their agents’ needs,” Raanan Horowitz, CEO and President, Elbit Systems of America, commented. “Border Patrol agents rely on our homeland security solutions to provide situational awareness and enhanced safety.”
