Unisys wins US Customs and Border Protection contract

Unisys Corporation has been chosen by the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to develop, operate and manage systems used for risk assessments of people and cargo entering the US by the agency’s Targeting and Analysis Systems Program Directorate (TASPD).

The contract will support TASPD’s Office of Information and Technology, which provides technology solutions that support CBP inspection and enforcement activities to help the agency protect U.S. borders and facilitate legitimate trade and travel.

The Unisys solution quickly deploys new capabilities like big data analytics, cloud and biometrics to help CBP officers and agents automatically identify which shipments or travellers present a low risk appropriate for “low touch” automated clearance and those that present a higher risk requiring additional investigation or inspection. This process allows CBP to avoid clearance delays by focusing resources on inspecting and analysing high-risk travellers and cargo.

Amy Rall, Group Vice President for Homeland Security and Critical Infrastructure, Unisys Federal said: “Border security continues to be a priority for the country, and our work on TASPD is a positive illustration of how technology can be applied to assess risk related to the millions of cargo and travellers entering and exiting the country each day.

“Unisys is extremely pleased and proud to have the opportunity to continue our partnership with the TASPD organisation and to help secure the nation’s supply chain and support CBP’s layered defence strategy for international cargo and passengers.”
