$2 Million Going Toward Border Security Technology

By  | 

AUSTIN (AP) - An El Paso company is getting $2 million in high-tech funding from Texas.

Governor Rick Perry says the money will help SecureOrigins get its border security technology to the market.

The grant is through the Texas Emerging Technology Fund.

Perry's office says SecureOrigins is getting the money for further development of its Intelligent Software Agents.

The sensor-related software is meant to assist first responders in protecting the border.

The technology also is meant to help with emergency preparedness and response involving high volumes of information and fast-changing circumstances.
