Navmar wins $12.5M contract to develop biometric identity system

Navmar Applied Sciences Corp. has won a $12.5 million contract to develop a Biometric Identity Approval Sentinel for the Navy.

The sentinel will produce technology that rapidly processes individuals for threat detection and biometric matching.

Under the contract, Navmar will provide a fully integrated, highly accurate, configurable, and deployable solution that combines current and new technologies to dramatically increase the safety, speed, and efficiency of access control, the Defense Department said.

Work will be performed in Patuxent River, Md., and is expected to be completed by February 2017.

Funding in the amount of $3 million is obligated at the time of the award, and will expire at the end of fiscal 2014.
