Animetrics establishes new D.C. office
Animetrics, a leading developer of 2-D to 3-D face recognition solutions, has announced that its new Washington D.C office will open in July 2012.
The office will primarily focus on research and development, strategic partnerships, and federal business development. Thus the goal of the office is to strengthen the firm’s ability to serve the intelligence community and magnify its strategic relationships with its key partners which include Scitor, BAH, 3M Cogent, CACI, and Animetrics’ integrators of 3-D facial recognition technologies.
Considering the continuous and fast-paced growth of its business, Animetrics has been investing an ample amount of its engineering resources on cloud technology and mobile application development.
The firm has appointed Dr. William A. Maniatty as principal software engineer and senior architect in building and managing Animetrics’ new D.C. based software development team. He will work with the firm’s senior scientist and software engineer Gary Zang.
Maniatty has a wealth of experience in computer security and data mining and previously worked with Booz Allen Hamilton. He’s also noted for his work as an engineer at MITRE Corporation, IBM, and AltaVault. Maniatty gained technical expertise from his work within software security research program at a federal research agency.
“With the continued growth and adoption of Animetrics’ 3-D facial recognition technology by Animetrics strategic partners within the national intelligence and military communities, there is a growing need to establish a Washington D.C. office to support federal intelligence efforts,” stated Paul Scheupp, President and CEO or Animetrics. “We’re excited to be on the forefront of this field with advanced 3-D facial biometric solutions, and look forward to expanding our presence in the months and years to come.”
The D.C. based office will also serve as the focal point of firm’s federal business activity. Director John Little of Federal Business Development will take charge in expanding the market of facial recognition technology throughout the federal sector.
Will Animetrics’ new office in Washington D.C. create more business opportunities for the company?
