FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient CRGT, Inc., a leading provider of worldwide training development and delivery, Agile software development, data analytics, mobility, cyber security, and infrastructure solutions, today announced a prime contract award from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), to provide development, integration and evaluation in support of Borders & Maritime Research, Integration and Transition Environments (BorderRITE). This five-year effort is valued at approximately $22.6 million.
The objective of BorderRITE is to provide two environments that seamlessly work together to help secure the Nation's borders. Salient CRGT fills the gap between vendor testing and pilot programs by development systems and creating environments 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 (R&D) 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.
"Our partnership with DHS Science and Technology Directorate aligns with our company focus on innovation," says Brad Antle, CEO of Salient CRGT. "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."
This award was through Salient Federal Solutions, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Salient CRGT.
