DHS Calls on Border Technological Back-Up

Salient CRGT, a worldwide provider of training development and delivery, software development, data analytics, mobility, cyber security, and infrastructure solutions, recently announced a contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), to provide development, integration and evaluation in support of Borders & Maritime Research. This five-year effort is valued at approximately $22.6 million.The company has specialised in the last few years in the fields of integration and operations of large‐scale, high‐volume solutions.

The objective, as stated in the company’s press release, is to provide two environments that seamlessly work together to help secure US borders. Salient CRGT comes in to play by developing and creating environment systems to evaluate emerging technologies and transition them into operational use. The company will build and maintain these environments and help S&T identify new technologies.

Created by Congress in 2003 with the formation of the Department of Homeland Security, S&T is DHS’s primary research and development arm. S&T manages science and technology research, from development through transition, for the department’s operational components and the nation’s first responders. S&T’s mission is to deliver effective and innovative insight, methods and solutions for the critical needs of the Homeland Security Enterprise.

Brad Antle, CEO of Salient CRGT explained: “Our partnership with DHS Science and Technology Directorate aligns with our company focus on innovation. Our Innovation Centers focus on identifying and testing new technologies to improve our customers’ efficiency and threat posture. This effort picks up where manufacturers’ and vendors’ product testing ends. Evaluating technologies in a real-world environment will inform DHS S&T’s decision making about significant technology investments and save the agency time and money.”
