Elbit to Install Integrated Fixed Towers System on USA - Mexico Border

Elbit Systems has been awarded a contract by the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) service to install an Integrated Fixed Towers (IFT) system in the U.S. Border Patrol Casa Grande Area of Responsibility (AoR) in Arizona.

The project, valued at approximately $26 million, will be performed over a one-year period.

To date, Elbit Systems has been awarded a number of contracts from CBP to install IFT systems in numerous AoR’s covering a total of approximately 200 miles of the Arizona–Mexico border.

The Integrated Fixed Towers (IFT) system comprises a command and control center and a networked multi-tower, multi-sensor system that continuously monitors portions of the U.S. southern border. Click to enlarge.

 Information from the towers is sent to the command and control center at a Border Patrol Station providing agents with long-range, persistent surveillance and situational awareness that allows them to dispatch an appropriate response.

Ranaan Horowitz, Elbit Systems of America President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Elbit Systems of America is honored to have been selected by the CBP and the Tohono O’odham Nation to provide a solution to suit the needs of those living and working along the border in the Casa Grande AoR. This project clearly demonstrates our company’s mission to provide innovative solutions that protect and save lives.”
