U.S. Approves Possible FMS to Egypt for Border Security Mobile Surveillance Sensor System DRS Technologies provides proven border security and force protection systems
     

The Government of Egypt has requested a possible sale for procurement and construction of one (1) commercial off-the-shelf border security mobile surveillance sensor security system that will include the following sub-systems: mobile surveillance sensor towers, mobile command and control (C2) systems, a regional C2 system, voice/data communications equipment, spare parts, support equipment, personnel training, training equipment, publications and technical documentation, U.S. Government and contractor technical and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated cost is $100 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that has been and continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.

This mobile surveillance sensor security system will provide Egypt with advanced capabilities intended to bolster its border surveillance capabilities along its border with Libya and elsewhere. This procurement is intended for Egyptian Border Guard Forces, which currently lack any remote detection capability along unpatrolled areas of Egypt’s borders. This system would provide an early warning capability to allow for faster response times to mitigate threats to the border guards and the civilian population. Egypt should have no difficulty absorbing these systems into its armed forces.

The principal contractors will be Lockheed Martin in Bethesda, Maryland; Northrop Grumman in Falls Church, Virginia; and DRS Technologies in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
