The Silicon Valley military-contracting startup Anduril has been awarded a contract with US Customs and Border Protection to build a virtual "wall" as a means to monitor crossings in the US.

The Washington Post first reported that the system would use surveillance towers to detect movement and artificial intelligence to distinguish between humans and animals.

A price was not disclosed, but Anduril execs told The Post that the deal was worth several hundred million dollars.
