“This is a highly targeted program,” said lead judge Chuck Brooks, “dealing with very serious national and international threats in land, sea and air that are in the news every day. The vendor companies and government agencies working in Airport, Seaport, Rail and Border security and participating in this program are cutting edge leaders both nationally and internationally.”

GSN would also like to thank lead Sponsor HID Global, a former Winner in this awards program, for its generous assistance in making the 2016 Airport Seaport Border Security Awards a success once again. And many congratulations to HID Global and prime contractor DLRS Group on winning the Best ID Document award for the first and only credit-card sized passport used in Europe.
