An Elbit Systems of America Integrated Fixed Tower (IFT) border security system passed US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) systems acceptance testing.
This IFT system, located in the Douglas, Arizona, Area of Responsibility (AOR), marks the company's second deployment of the system, with the first occurring in the Nogales, Arizona, AOR, the company announced Monday.
Raanan Horowitz, CEO and president, Elbit Systems of America said, "Border Patrol agents rely on our homeland security solutions to provide situational awareness and enhanced safety."
As the system integrator, Elbit Systems of America furnishes the sensor towers with radar, day/night cameras, and command & control software, which correlates sensor information to provide a single operating picture. Information from all the towers is networked into Border Patrol Station command and control centers, which increases situational awareness for Border Patrol Agents.
The IFT's high reliability and proven contractor logistics support provides CBP with 24/7 surveillance coverage. The system also provides CBP with a platform to integrate existing and future sensors to improve border protection and agent safety.
The IFT program continues to deliver to customer performance and schedule requirements, as well as meet cost goals. On the path to system acceptance, significant milestones must occur. Several months of construction, integration, test activity, and system verification ensures each IFT meets performance requirements. Each system must detect, track, identify, and classify border activity.
