A Border Patrol agent assigned to the Miami Sector deploys a Mobile Remote Video Surveillance System (MRVSS) while conducting duties at Biscayne National Park in Key Biscayne, Florida.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has issued a formal solicitation calling for the purchase of a minimum of two Mobile Video Surveillance Systems — and perhaps hundreds more — which are a suite of video and other sensors mounted on a Ford 150 4×4 truck and can be used by Border Patrol agents during the day or night.

“They will also be deployed to augment fixed surveillance systems that have line-of-sight (LoS) coverage gaps caused by existing infrastructure, terrain (e.g., ravines or washes), or vegetation,” explains the CBP’s solicitation, which was published on April 30 and calls for vendor responses by June 4.

The document indicates that this contract will be awarded on a “total small business” set-aside basis.

Telephonics Corp., a large company which is already a supplier of sensor suites to CBP on the Mobile Surveillance Capability (MSC) and other surveillance programs, could not compete for the role of prime contractor in a small business set-aside situation, but hopes to supply its equipment to a small business prime contractor, Bobby Brown, the company’s vice president of integrated surveillance systems, told Government Security News.
