Peraton selected to sustain security screening equipment of US DHS and TSA

US-based Peraton has been awarded a $578m contract to help sustain the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) security screening equipment.

Under the contract, the company will provide critical performance-based integrated logistics support services for the equipment installed at all US airports and other component facilities over the next five years.

The security screening equipment, which is designed to help detect threats to aviation from adversaries, is essential to allow TSA’s security mission to operate with 100% certainty to keep air travel safe for the public.

The contract will help ensure TSA continues to be successful in conducting its security mission and protect the nation.

Peraton CEO Stu Shea said: “Our work will help TSA protect our country.

“We’re proud to have once again been called upon to assist the Department of Homeland Security in its mission of safeguarding the nation, and we eagerly accept the high standards and accountability required by TSA.”

This award also strengthens Peraton’s position in delivering critical mission assurance based upon proven past performance.

Peraton has supported the Department of Homeland Security on complex national security initiatives.

The company has significant experience in providing highly differentiated space, intelligence, cyber/SIGINT, defence, homeland security, electronic warfare and secure communications solutions.
