Multiple Firms to Provide Multimodal Biometrics for the US Navy


A handful of biometrics companies have been awarded with new contracts to provide multimodal biometrics solutions to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic, a component of the United States Navy.

Among the companies are American Systems Corporation, Booz Allen Hamilton Incorporated, Honeywell Technology Solutions Incorporated, Ideal Innovations Incorporated, Science Applications International Corporation, and Scientific Research Corporation.

Under the agreements, the companies will provide biometric support services in the areas of research and development, investigation, analysis, test and evaluation procurement and reporting for counter-terrorism, counter-insurgency and force protection technology needs, intelligence gathering technology, identity exploitation, and the overall development of multimodal biometric technologies.

The total estimated value of the base year for the six contracts is $33,133,000, along with options that would bring the cumulative value to an estimated $99.4 million.
