Army extends border-monitoring work with McQ

A $4.5 million contract extension from the Army will tap McQ Inc. to deliver advanced persistent surveillance sensors for monitoring borders, protecting forces and surveilling battlefields.

The Army awarded the company its previous two contracts for advanced technology sensors in December 2005 and March 2006.

Under those contracts, McQ furnished the Army with 400 OmniSense remote intrusion detection sensors for tracking people and vehicles. It also developed an enhanced remote intrusion sensor system for the Army Research Lab that added new features to the OmniSense product.
