Both maritime and border security have been critical areas of activity for the US as is evident from the Obama administration’s increased emphasis on enhancing capabilities and preparedness of specific homeland security departments such as Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Coast Guard. The Maritime Surveillance and Detection segment is expected to account for the largest segment of expenditure in the US primarily due to the procurement of eight National Security Cutters (NSCs).
Further expenditure in this segment is driven by the coast guard re-authorization bill for 2015 which mandates the procurement of new arctic ice breakers, as well as the upgrade of existing vessels in order to maintain US presence in the polar region and carry out surveillance activities. A large portion of expenditure by the US government is also expected to allocated order infrastructure and protection, as most of the country’s capital expenditure is anticipated to be directed towards the procurement of surveillance and patrol capabilities, leaving a smaller portion of the homeland security budget for investment in border infrastructure. Expenditure in this segment is driven mainly by the border security bill, introduced in the senate in 2013, which allocated US$7.5 billion to build 350 miles of fencing along the US-Mexico border in addition to regular homeland security border protection undertakings including the annual facilities maintenance, repairs, and operation program, and the consolidation of the National Targeting Center (NTC).
