Israeli company to build US-Mexico border wall prototype

An Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) subsidiary is on the short list to construct the new border wall between the United States and Mexico, an enormous project.

Elta North America, the aforementioned IAI subsidiary, was announced Saturday (9th) as one of only four companies to construct a prototype for a “smart border” wall, after winning a US Customs tender.  More than 200 companies from around the world presented bids for the tender.

Each one of the four companies will receive funding of $300,000-$500,000 to finance the production of said prototype in the coming fall.
