Bounce Imaging, Inc announced that it has received a five-year Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity contract from U.S. Customs and Border Protection to deliver advanced 360° situational awareness camera systems.

The contract is worth up to $15 million, which includes the procurement of Bounce Imaging’s Explorer™ Unleashed 2.0 cameras - a 4G-LTE-enabled throwable, a tactical camera that offers instant situational awareness in a rugged, softball-size ball. CBP will also receive Bounce Imaging’s Recce 360 Minis, which offer the same 360° technology in a smaller, baseball-size - as well as their Land Shark K-9 Camera systems.

The contract has a base value of $300,000 and was awarded under the authority of CBP.

"Whether in a container and confined space inspection or tactical scenarios, Bounce Imaging’s world-class imaging technologies offer the men and women of U.S Customs and Border Protection easy-to-use, rugged, and reliable surveillance solutions for the most challenging environments, allowing agents to do their important work more safely and more efficiently,” said Mark Fargason, COO at Bounce Imaging. “We’re proud of our partnership with CBP and excited to support the efforts of agents who serve at our nation’s ports of entry and land borders with our technology.”

Originally founded at the Harvard Innovation Lab and MIT, Bounce Imaging makes ruggedized sensor platforms that capture stabilized, omnidirectional video and audio data that is then stitched into a panoramic format that allows many users to look in many directions simultaneously and that can be shared over 802.11, 4G-LTE, or MANET networks.
