US Army Entry Control Point
Project — Personnel Borne/Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device Entry Control Point (PB/VB IED ECP)
Destination — Forward Operating Bases (FOB) in Afghanistan
Scope — 217,254 Items, 1,082 Containers, 12,835,870 lbs. of Equipment
In response to repeated attacks on US Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) using Personnel Borne and Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices (PB/VB IED), the US Army decided to harden the entry control points (ECP) at all FOBs in Afghanistan by designing a variety of systems to be installed by the Army Corps of Engineers. The Army awarded Aardvark a five-year indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract valued at over $60M to develop and field the ECP system, tasking Aardvark with procurement, vendor coordination, GFE management, production scheduling, packaging design, integration, logistics coordination, serial number and UID tracking, marking, and system documentation.
The various modules of the resulting ECP systems contain road barriers, vehicle arresting systems, armored guard posts, personnel and vehicle search equipment, translation and hailing gear, and pedestrian security systems. To date, the ECP program has fielded more than twelve million pounds of equipment and over two hundred thousand items to FOBs in Afghanistan.
The US Army Entry Control Point program is Integrated by Aardvark.
