Mobile sentry surveillance towers for Jordanian border.

DRS Technologies : 03 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Complete security system including installation and training to be supplied by DRS Technologies for the protection of Jordan's border.
DRS Technologies has received an order from the US Army's Communications and Electronics Command (CECOM), Fort Monmouth for the initial phase of the Jordan Border Security Program. In conjunction with the US Army, DRS will provide the Jordan Armed Forces with an end-to-end border security system for a section of Jordan's border.

In addition, the company will design a nation-wide border security architecture. DRS will also provide post delivery, maintenance, logistics and training support of the system. The work for this award will be accomplished by the company's DRS Command, Control and Communications (C3) Systems unit in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

'DRS has a proud legacy of providing integrated border surveillance systems and products, including ground radars and infrared cameras," said Richard Danforth, president of DRS' C3 business. "We are pleased to have been selected to provide a complete, integrated border security solution that will help the Jordanians maintain their national security."

The DRS integrated border surveillance system is an end-to-end, scaleable system. On the front lines, DRS will provide Distant Sentry mobile and fixed surveillance towers that utilize a variety of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) sensors. The DRS solution will provide communications connectivity between the Distant Sentry towers and mobile and fixed Command and Control (C2) Centers. Within the C2 Centres, DRS will provide software and computing systems, situational awareness displays and connectivity to the Jordan Armed Forces command and control infrastructure.

The C3 business develops, manufactures and supports a wide range of defence and homeland security systems, including communications, displays, radar, sonar and integrated command and control solutions for ground vehicle, airborne and maritime, as well as solutions for industrial, security and public safety applications.

DRS Technologies, headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey, is a leading supplier of integrated products, services and support to military forces, intelligence agencies and prime contractors worldwide. The company employs approximately 10,000 people.
