Leidos has received two delivery orders worth $202 million combined to supply non-intrusive inspection systems to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for deployment to the agency’s passenger vehicle checkpoint sites.
CBP placed the orders through a pair of multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts to procure Low-Energy Portal and Multi-Energy Portal systems, the company said Thursday.
Jim Moos, president of Leidos’ civil group, said the company will provide scanning technology to support the CBP mission.
“Safeguarding our nations’ ports and borders is a critical priority, and we’re proud to support CBP Field Operations as they expand their capabilities and secure the southwest border,” Moos added.
Leidos will be responsible for integrating, deploying and training CBP personnel to use its VACIS LEP and MEP systems, which incorporate Viken Detection’s OSPREY scanner to detect and prevent contraband, illicit narcotics, persons, unreported currency, guns, ammunition and illegal merchandise from entering the U.S.
System integration work will take place at Leidos’ facilities in Vista, California.
