The Border Security Technology Consortium is currently recruiting a broad and diverse membership that includes large and small private companies, not-for-profit organizations and academic research institutions.

There is a particular emphasis on recruiting “non-traditional” government contractors whose innovative border security technologies have not yet been captured by the Government.
