Raytheon awarded Increment 3 of Jordan’s Border Security Programme
Raytheon will expand Jordan’s Border Security Project after the award of Increment 3, which will cost USD18.6 million. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is assisted by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency who is the main source of the award. The programme is designed to protect the Jordanian borders on the Syrian side.

Raytheon previously announced the completion of Phase 2 and 3 (Jordan/Syria and Jordan/Iraq borders, respectively) as part of the JBSP, delivering key capabilities to help safeguard the Kingdom's borders.

"Raytheon continues to leverage local partnerships and regional knowledge to deliver a superior border security solution," said Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services (IIS). "This latest contract award acknowledges Raytheon's growing expertise in the region."

Under the latest contract, Raytheon will install passive barrier fencing, sensors, cameras and a command and control system. The focus is to enhance the Jordanian Armed Forces' ability to deter, detect and interdict threats.

"Our goal is to deliver the best possible border security offering for the Kingdom," said Todd Probert, vice president for Mission Support and Modernization at Raytheon IIS. "The best border security solution is the right combination of equipment, training and sustainment based on customer needs."

Raytheon's border security efforts support the DTRA's Cooperative Threat Reduction Integrating Contract (CTRIC II), awarded in April 2011 as a multiple-award, indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity contract.
