Border Security technology consortium logo

The Border Security Technology Consortium (BSTC) supports the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and other potential customers within the Department of Homeland Security in providing collaborative R&D and rapid prototyping/piloting capabilities germane to the border security domain.

A group of large and small businesses, non-profit organizations and academic research institutions quickly coalesced in the spring of 2012 to form the nucleus of the BSTC. The desired objective is for the BSTC to provide a one-stop source for capabilities across the border security technology spectrum, including:

  • Surveillance and monitoring
  • Identification and assessment
  • Targeting and intelligence
  • Communications and information management
  • Apprehension/detention/seizure/removal
  • Maritime security
  • Drug interdiction
  • and other border security – related capabilities
