Research & Development Analysis and Assessment: Rio Grande Valley Systems Analysis Fact Sheet

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents protect our borders in several states, but what works to ensure our safety in one state may not work in another.

Border patrol agents rely heavily on their training and experience to respond to incidents, but have asked for improved tools and techniques to in-crease their probability of success to address constantly evolving and emergent threats. CBP reached out to the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) for help in identifying systems solutions to meet these operational challenges.
