PAE awarded $66M forensics and biometrics contract from U.S. Navy
PAE has been awarded the Naval Expeditionary Forensics and Biometrics (NEFB) task order by the U.S. Navy under its SeaPort-e IDIQ.
The task order is for a four-year duration and has a total value of about $66 million if all options are exercised.
Under the contract, PAE will provide the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division with CONUS, OCONUS and shipboard services to support the Weapons Control and Integration Department’s forensics and biometrics requirements.
The company will provide a wide range of services including software engineering, DNA analysis, inert ordnance examination and documentation.
All these services help enable the Department of Defense forensic exploitation process to be executed in expeditionary locations.
“The Naval Expeditionary Forensics and Biometrics program serves an integral role in the military services’ identity management process by managing the collection, analysis and documentation of evidence,” said PAE CEO John Heller.
“The information gleaned from these processes shapes actionable intelligence, which is a cornerstone of our national security apparatus. Our employees, who joined PAE in last year’s acquisition of A-T Solutions, have supported this critical mission for over five years and are proud to enable the systematic application of forensic exploitation procedures around the globe.”
PAE provides support for the essential missions of the U.S.government, its allied partners and international organizations.
