The US Customs and Border Protection awarded W.S. Darley & Co to provide ANAFI USA for field evaluations to inform future Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) procurements.
CBP intends to seek competition in future acquisitions for sUAS by competing orders among the Blue sUAS BPA holders. By acquiring Blue sUAS through the intended actions with each vendor, CBP will obtain operational familiarity with each sUAS which will inform capabilities of the various brand name drones in different climates, environments, operational settings, conditions, and other settings for market research and future competitive acquisitions.
The BPA is worth up to $90 million over five years.
