Tucson’s Strongwatch looking to ride border-security wave
Desert Angels portfolio company Strongwatch is teamed with General Dynamics to compete for a Homeland Security contract for mobile surveillance systems potentially worth $50 million. “It’s a big deal — it’s essentially the first major opportunity for our technology to serve national security on the border,” Strongwatch CEO Powell said.
Strongwatch was one of six companies awarded $250,000 grants under the Arizona Commerce Authority’s Innovation Challenge in June. Last week, Strongwatch won the Small Business Innovation award of the Governor’s Celebration of Innovation, sponsored by the Arizona Commerce Authority and the Arizona Technology Council.
