Customs and Border Protection announced on June 18 its intention to award a contract worth more than $45 million to Raytheon Company to supply its SeaVue radar systems, which will be introduced as a mission sensor for the Predator B unmanned aircraft system.

The SeaVue radar is already being used on DHC-8 and P-3 aircraft, according to a CBP award notice posted online on June 18.

The radar system is part of the avionics inventory used by CBP’s Office of Air and Marine (OAM), and also supports the Ocean Surveillance Initiative, says the notice.

“SeaVue radars are lightweight, high-performance surveillance systems with proven long-range surface detection techniques,” says Raytheon’s Website.The SeaVue family of radars is designed to detect small maritime targets in high seas and provide superior sea search mode performance.

“The radars offer inverse synthetic aperture radar imaging of ocean targets and a weather detection and avoidance mode. SeaVue also plays a role in overland surveillance with its synthetic aperture radar mode designed to supplement the maritime mission,” said the company.

The contract performance will take place in McKinney, TX, headquarters for Raytheon’s  Network Centric Systems unit, which develops and produces mission solutions for networking, command and control, battlespace awareness and air traffic management.

CBP envisions an award of $45,260,405, with a one-year base period and three one-year options.

Further information is available from Stephanie Alexander, a CBP contracting officer, at 202-344-1168 or [email protected].
