ICE to get comms help from new vehicle

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is expanding its technological reach with the help of a mobile communications vehicle, AOL Government reports.

The vehicle was designed to the agency's specifications by MorganFranklin, a company based in McLean, Va. According to the AOL Government report, it uses a number of IT and communications systems, including broadband cellular in order to create a "bubble" in areas of limited connectivity.

The report says the vehicle will be used in support of numerous ICE operations, including voice over IP and collecting satellite imagery of the U.S. border.
