Israeli company Elbit Systems, the largest supplier to the Israeli military, has been awarded a $87m contract from the US Department of Homeland Security to produce and install surveillance systems for the US-Mexico border fence.
The contract is for an unspecified number of observation posts to be built along the US-Mexico border fence in the area of Nogales, south of Tuscon.
Elbit Systems was involved in the West Bank wall separating the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel. The company provides “intrusion detection systems” and infrastructure support for the barrier.
