Federal officials are narrowing down the list of companies who bid to build the border wall and a Scottsdale company is on that list

The company, Dark Pulse Technologies, is now moving on to the second round of bids and has until May 30 to submit it's final proposal, which must include an estimated cost.  

Darkpulse Technologies' CEO Dennis O'leary said the company teamed up with other companies to design a ballistic concrete wall with sensors. Fiber sensors in the wall would instantly detect someone trying to get around it and sound an alarm on any potential tunnels, O'leary said. The technology would also be embedded into the wall structure so that the "wall itself becomes a sensor," he added.

The design would also have a slick coating that would prevent climbing and withstand attempts to knock it down, which O'leary argues will save the government millions in personnel.

Border wall construction contracts are expected to be awarded late next month and up to twenty companies could be chosen.
