  • Overview

    Eagle Ray is looking for a System Engineer to assist with the mission of Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Customs and Border Protection (CBP)/Air and Marine Operations (AMO). DHS/CBP/AMO’s mission is to protect the American people and the Nation’s critical infrastructure. This is accomplished through the coordinated use of integrated air and marine forces to detect, interdict, and prevent acts of terrorism and the unlawful movement of people, illegal drugs and other contraband toward or across the borders of the United States.
    Domain Awareness (DA) is a critical core capability that enables the DHS mission. It is the effective understanding of the environment and information associated with the various domains (air, land, and maritime) that could adversely affect safety, security, the economy, or the environment. AMO employs advanced sensor systems to contribute to domain awareness.
    Domain Awareness Standards and Analysis (DASA) provides funding and oversight of persistent wide area surveillance systems that enhance DA; better enable CBP/AMO to plan effectively; and allow appropriate responses to threats in the Nation’s border regions and approaches. DASA sets the standards of performance for long-range air surveillance systems, which enhance detection and interdiction capabilities for the border security zones.
