Raytheon has won a $18.6 million contract from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to help the Government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (GoHKJ) secure its borders with Syria.
The award is for increment three of DTRA's Jordan Border Security Project (JBSP), the company announced Thursday. The company had previously announced the completion of Phase 2 and 3 (Jordan/Syria and Jordan/Iraq borders, respectively) as part of the JBSP.
Under the latest contract, Raytheon will install passive barrier fencing, sensors, cameras and a command and control system. The focus is to enhance the Jordanian Armed Forces' ability to deter, detect and interdict threats.
"The best border security solution is the right combination of equipment, training and sustainment based on customer needs." said Todd Probert, vice president for Mission Support and Modernization at Raytheon IIS.
Raytheon's border security efforts support the DTRA's Cooperative Threat Reduction Integrating Contract (CTRIC II), awarded in April 2011 as a multiple-award, indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity contract.
