Stanley, a provider of system integration and professional services to the U.S. federal government, announced it was awarded a one-year, cost-plus-incentive-fee contract valued at US$1.7 million for Biometric Multispectral Fingerprinting by the U.S. Army Information Technology, E-Commerce and Commercial Contracting Center - West.
"We look forward to beginning work on this new task and assisting the U.S. Army Intelligence Center Language and Technology Office with this critical support to facilitate the use of biometrics for identity dominance,” said Phil Nolan, Stanley's Chairman, President and CEO. “For more than five years, Stanley personnel have supported the biometrics mission with innovative technologies and we appreciate the customer's continued confidence in our performance as we provide U.S. forces with new capabilities.”
Under this award, Stanley has partnered with Lumidigm, a biometrics sensor developer, to provide a working multispectral prototype sensor and SDK for integration into mobile biometrics devices for the Language and Technology Office, U.S. Army Intelligence Center, Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Unlike conventional fingerprint readers, multi-spectral imaging technology captures data from the surface and subsurface of the fingertip, resulting in superior fingerprint images regardless of adverse environmental conditions in which the U.S. military operates.
