SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Echodyne, the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance radars for government and commercial markets, announced today that it will be exhibiting at the Border Security Expo, taking place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas from March 11 - 12, 2020 at Booth 626.
The event brings together senior leadership from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and federal agency decision-makers to discuss how technology, international partnerships, and the political landscape impact border security.
Echodyne is a well-known technology provider for border security solutions, having participated in the inaugural class of The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate Silicon Valley Innovation Program, a program working to find new technologies that strengthen national security.
