    An aerospace technology company in Hagerstown, Maryland is getting a boost from the Department of Homeland Security.

    Sierra Nevada Corporation has received a contract for approximately $600 million to equip aircraft for the Department of Homeland Security.

    The aircraft will conduct customs and border protection, and roughly 100 people are expected to be hired for the work. Sierra Nevada's vice president, William Shaver, says the Hagerstown site, near Hagerstown Regional Airport, already has a little more than 500 employees. About half of the current Sierra Nevada employees are contractors.

    The new workers will include engineers, mechanics, metal workers and maintenance staff.
