WASHINGTON, D.C., April 5, 2011—In its April issue, Homeland Security Today reveals its list of the “Top 25” contractors with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2010 and the “Rising 10” companies to watch in homeland security for 2011.
Top 25 Contractors with DHS in 2010
Contractors involved in DHS efforts to create the infrastructure necessary for a more secure homeland—which includes aircraft and ship builders, information technology companies, detection firms and systems integrators—soared to the top of Homeland Security Today’s ranking of the Top 25 homeland security contractors in 2010.
According to Philip Finnegan, Homeland Security Today’s “Market Monitor” columnist and author of the Top 25 and Rising 10, “These companies owe their positions to the programs that have moved ahead in the past few years, including the US Coast Guard Deepwater program, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) aircraft modernization, the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) commercial processing system, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) infrastructure modernization program, the US Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) immigration and border management program, and continuing improvement of detection at US ports and airports.”
10 Rising Companies to Watch in Homeland Security for 2011
This listing looks at 10 companies that show promise as future leaders in homeland security. “These companies promise to grow quickly in coming years, either because of recent contract wins or their overall positioning in growing areas within homeland security,” writes Finnegan. “They include a broad range of capabilities: systems integration, information technology, biometrics, detection and cutting-edge technologies in sensors and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).”
“Every year our Top 25 and Rising 10 features are the most comprehensive and revealing look at the state of the homeland security industry,” said Editor David Silverberg. “This year is no exception. This is a must-read for anyone concerned with the means of protecting the American people on their own soil.”
