EADS Defence and Security has fought off stiff competition to be awarded the border security programme for the whole of Saudi Arabia.
Under the five-year contract, EADS will supply a visibility and operational awareness solution for about 9,000km of borderline territory that covers mountain and desert terrain as well as sea borders.
EADS will ensure border coverage is visible and managed at both the regional and national level.
The project has been strongly fought through an international competition of several years, EADS said.
The construction work will be supported by the construction company Al Rashid group.
