Smiths Detection today announced a $14.1 million order from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for supplies, parts and services to maintain X-ray cargo scanners deployed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

This dedication to meeting operational needs and ensuring our technology functions at peak performance helps our customers protect travelers across the U.S and the entire world."

The order includes: program management services, configuration management, warranty transitions, preventative and corrective maintenance, and X-ray systems.

It is part of an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a total value of up to $62.5 million.
