Feds select finalists for border wall construction

Out of approximately 200 companies who submitted proposals for construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, the federal government has reportedly selected several finalists who will then move on to the phase two of the bidding process.

The names of the finalists have not been released, but one company in Scottsdale, Arizona has come forward to say they are one of the chosen finalists.

DarkPulse Technologies’ CEO Dennis O’Leary said their proposal includes high-tech sensors that can detect if the walll is compromised in any way, including whether anyone tries to climb over it, tunnel under it or attack it.

“If anyone comes up to the wall, tries to climb it, go through it, tunnel under it, border patrol is going to know,” said O’Leary. “The technology is such that it could detect movement in the soil.”

The wall would be constructed of “ballistic resistant concrete, capable of repelling a tank attack.” The plans call for fiber wire to be embedded both in the wall and in the ground around it, capable of producing an image of any attempted breach that would then be relayed to border agents in real time.

The next step will be for all finalists to build a sample of their proposed wall on a designated area of land near San Diego, ABC15 Arizona reported.

KRGV said the prototype walls are to be about 30 feet long, and 18-30 feet tall.  The wall must be impossible to scale without help, impossible to penetrate with tools for at least an hour, and “aesthetically pleasing” from the U.S. side.
