Peraton has won a potential five-year, $277.5M contract to help the U.S. Customs Border and Protection manage a suite of airborne radar systems that support the agency's air, maritime and ground surveillance missions.

The recompete contract will extend the company's operation and maintenance support for the Tethered Aerostat Radar System, which CBP personnel use to conduct interdiction operations. Peraton said Tuesday.

John Coleman, president of Peraton's defense and homeland security sector, said the company will continue to support detection and monitoring services through TARS to help the agency catch illegal activities such as human trafficking and drug smuggling.

TARS operators have used blimp-like aircraft to transmit border surveillance data to the Department of Homeland Security and share the information with U.S. military and foreign law enforcement agencies.

Peraton added it supports the system's associated equipment and provide repair, obsolescence planning and supply chain management services.

The contract has one base year and four option years.
