The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) contracted with Boeing Co. to implement SBInet along the U.S. northern and southern borders. The SBInet program will provide technology to detect, identify, classify, respond to, and resolve illegal entry attempts at land borders with Mexico and Canada. SBInet will integrate the latest technology and infrastructure to interdict illegal immigration and stop threats attempting to cross borders, said DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff. A model of the entire solution mix will be deployed at the Southwest border during the next eight months. Following this initial deployment, additional task orders will be issued focusing on the Southwest border first. The three-year contract has a potential for three one-year contract extensions. The Boeing SBInet core team includes Centech, DRS Surveillance and Reconnaissance Group, Kollsman, L-3 Government Services, L-3 Communication Systems West, Lucent Technologies, Perot Systems, Unisys Global Public Sector, and USIS. Lucent said it and Bell Labs will perform duties ranging from wireline and wireless network design, analysis, and modeling functions spanning voice, data, and sensor communications. Bell Labs will also offer nanotechnology and sensor technologies.
