Raytheon in final stages of Jordanian border security project

Raytheon are in the final stages of delivering their $100 million contract to supply cameras, radars, communications equipment, quick reaction team vehicles and command centre systems. The system is designed to deter and detect infiltrations of Jordan's borders and to interdict where necessary.

The systems cover the Syrian and Iraqi borders along more than 460km of Jordan's borders.

Raytheon was awarded a contract for the Jordan Border Security Project in 2013 by the US Defence Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), or DTRA and first operational capability was deployed in 2014.

Raytheon are in the final stages of transitioning operational responsibility for all border security systems to the Jordanian forces.
