CBP "Integrated Towers" Project

The US Customs & Border Protection (CBP) has begun soliciting bids on what it is calling "integrated fixed towers":

These manned towers will be placed at strategic locations along the Arizona/Mexico border and will house various radar. communications and surveillance electronics that will help CBP with tracking illegal border crossings. The first of the towers is scheduled to be installed near the Nogalas, AZ CBP area of responsibility.

This may be the next version of the so-called "virtual fence" project that Boeing failed to deliver to CBP a few years ago. More information on this latest project can be found here:’s_“integrated_fixed_towers”_program
