General Dynamics Achieves DHS Designation for Border Surveillance System
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 | Comments

General Dynamics' Remote Video Surveillance System (RVSS) upgrade achieved a full operating capability (FOC) designation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This milestone was achieved after two years of deployment and field testing along the southern border.

The RVSS capability is operational in Nogales, Douglas, Naco, Yuma, and Ajo, Arizona, with relocatable deployments planned in McAllen and Laredo, Texas, in 2017.

"The deployment of the RVSS is important to the safety of our agents and to our mission," said Ronald D. Vitiello, chief of CBP's U.S. Border Patrol. "Successful partnerships like the one we have with the General Dynamics team are necessary to efficiently and effectively secure the border."

Located on elevated towers and structures, the RVSS advanced electro-optical and infrared sensors provide persistent ground surveillance to Border Patrol agents via an intuitive video management system with real-time analytics to effectively detect, track, identify, classify and respond to missions along U.S. borders.

In July 2013, CBP awarded General Dynamics One Source the contract to upgrade the RVSS capability along the southern U.S. border. General Dynamics One Source is comprised of General Dynamics Information Technology and General Dynamics Mission Systems.
