SAIC to support Army's biometrics toolset

Science Applications International Corp. will provide engineering support to help the Army maintain and enhance a biometrics toolset under a $37 million contract.

The Army's Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems awarded the one-year contract under the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-2 Services program. It has three one-year options.

The company will perform the work primarily in Sierra Vista, Ariz., and Kingstowne, Va.

The Army's Biometrics Automated Toolset devices collect fingerprints, iris scans, facial photos and biographical information on people of interest, and stores that information in a searchable database. It also facilitates the use of biometrics for exploiting intelligence.

The system gives military forces the ability to identify, track and deal with the people they encounter in terrorism operations.

SAIC, of San Diego, ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
