December 8, 2015 - 

ImageWare Systems, and its partner, Four Points Technology, announced they have been awarded another contract to provide The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) with additional software and support services for delivering biometric credentials.

“This additional agreement is another example of how the scalability and interoperability of our biometric identity management solutions help our customers address security mandates,” said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems. “ImageWare’s vendor-neutral, open-architected and patented IWS Biometric Engine platform provides government agencies and commercial enterprises with extremely flexible capabilities to meet any new business requirements.”

The contract covers a base period and option periods to provide improved security for contractors, employees and agency facilities.

The additional licenses and support is valued at approximately $3 million under the condition that all options are exercised over the next two fiscal years.

“We are pleased to support our VA customer with innovative technologies such as biometric credentialing,” said Jason Goldberg, sales director at Four Points Technology. “As a partner with ImageWare, we are committed to providing our customers with security solutions; meeting their ever evolving and challenging security needs.”

Previously reported, ImageWare Systems received a notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office that its United States patent application No. 14/254,629, titled “Multi-Modal Biometric Database Searching Methods,” will be granted. This will be ImageWare’s 11th U.S. patent.
