Customs and Border Protection has selected five companies to compete for up to $90 million in orders to provide small unmanned aircraft systems for Department of Homeland Security components.
The awardees under the five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) are Altavian, which is part of Teledyne Technologies [TDY], Atlantic Diving Supply, which resells UAS provided by various manufacturers, Red Cat Holdings [RCAT], Vantage Robotics, and W.S. Darley & Co., which resells Teledyne’s UAS systems.
Red Cat said that its Teal Drones business will supply UAS under the BPA.
DHS components can order drones through the BPA for airborne reconnaissance, surveillance and tracking.
