SAN DIEGO, CA. 22 DEC 2020; Today, BMS announces that it has been awarded a follow-on contract by the US Customs and Border Protection agency. Under the agreement, BMS will provide additional maritime video receive capabilities for its industry leading Airborne Video Datalink (AVDL) system. This new equipment, designed and manufactured at BMS’ headquarters in Poway California will integrate seamlessly with the airborne transmit surveillance elements and datalinks previously provided by BMS under a separate contract.

BMS has been a trusted supplier to the CBP for over a decade. This added capability will provide the CBP’s newly acquired coastal intercept watercraft with video coverage of the United States and the Caribbean Sea.  The system will display live video and data feeds to other CBP and DHS assets for operation situational awareness in real time.

“BMS is proud to be a partner with the Customs and Border Protection organization. As the contractor of record for the (AVDL) system, BMS is grateful to be able to support the men and women of the CBP in meeting their mission to protect all Americans and our borders” said Harry Davoody, CEO of Broadcast Microwave Services. “BMS is proud that the CBP continues to allow us to work with and support them on a day-to-day basis to fulfill the dangerous tasks they perform for us. The true acknowledgement of the strength of BMS is in our long-term relationships and partnerships such as the one we have with the CBP.”
