Elbit Systems of America, LLC, announced that it has won a $145 million Firm Fixed Price contract by the United States Department of Homeland Security Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to supply its Peregrine™ border security system for the CBP's Integrated Fixed Tower project. The initial phase, which covers a portion of the total contract amount, will deploy the Peregrine system in the Nogales, Arizona area.
The contract contains options for deployments at other locations across the Arizona border and support services. If all options are exercised, the contract would be performed over a nearly nine-year period.
"We are privileged to receive this award, which provides Elbit Systems of America an opportunity to bring Elbit's border security capabilities to the southwest border of the United States," said Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO, Elbit Systems of America. "Peregrine will meet the demanding mission requirements of the CBP while enhancing its agents' safety. We look forward to providing Peregrine to the men and women of the US Border Patrol and to assist them in making the border secure."
