MorphoTrust USA (Safran), the Identity Company, announced that it has won a major contract with the Department of Defense (DoD) to provide identity verification solutions. The solution, which leverages MorphoTrust's biometrics expertise, will help the DoD achieve its mission of defending the United States by verifying the identities of individuals in situations critical to national security.
In this third-year renewal option, the DoD will extend its contract for MorphoTrust ABIS (automated biometric identification system). ABIS offers a software platform that allows organizations to search, process, compare and manage identity data of enrolled individuals. With ABIS, the DoD can enroll biometric images including face, finger, palm, and iris for use in near instantaneous one-to-one and one-to-many identity checks. ABIS facilitates the DoD's identity record keeping, identity management, ID verification and deduplication mission goals. This contract is worth US$3.5 million.
“Federal agencies need to be able to reliably verify the identities of individuals whenever national security is involved, and wherever identity is critical to their mission,” said Bob Eckel, CEO of MorphoTrust. “Over the years, MorphoTrust has proudly served the identity needs of DoD and many other agencies, and our team looks forward to bringing our expertise and support in the years ahead.”
