BAE technology will act as Army gatekeeper

Three-year contract will provide secure entry systems to posts

BAE Systems Inc. will provide secure access systems at several Army installations under a three-year contract that could be worth up to $95 million.

The automated installation entry systems use software and hardware to verify information on individuals and match that information to data on registered vehicles, according to a BAE announcement dated May 25.

The company will install the systems at Army sites in the United States, and the network will be designed to transfer information across those sites.

BAE Systems currently provides similar systems for the Navy, the Homeland Security Department and others in security-critical environments.

“These systems will enable guards to quickly permit or deny entry to drivers based on threat levels. They will also lower overall security costs by reducing guard requirements,” said Richard Anderson, vice president and general manager for integrated technical solutions at BAE Systems.

Work will be performed primarily at BAE Systems facilities in North Charleston, S.C.

BAE Systems, of Rockville, Md., ranks No. 15 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
