The U.S. Customs and Border Protection has begun work to expand CBP’s Air and Marine Operations Center at March Air Reserve Base in California.
CBP said Wednesday it established AMOC to help law enforcement personnel detect, identify, monitor and direct the interdiction of suspect aviation and maritime targets.
“This 22,000-square-foot expansion will allow us to shift support functions from our current building and thus create more operational space to house our increases in personnel and latest generation technology,” said Tony Crowder, acting deputy executive assistant commissioner of CBP Air and Marine Operations.
Barnhart-Reese Construction will facilitate the project under an $11 million contract from CBP and the Army Corps of Engineers.
The AMOC expansion project is scheduled to complete within one year and the expanded facility will accommodate information technology staff and equipment as well as feature administrative offices and conference, break-out and storage rooms.
