US DoD Renews Identity Verification Contract with Safran’s MorphoTrust
Safran’s MorphoTrust USA has announced that it has been rewarded a $3.5 million contract from the Department of Defense (DoD) to provide identity verification solutions. The DoD will utilize MorphoTrust’s pioneering biometrics expertise to achieve its mission of defending the United States by confirming the identities of individuals during instances critical to national security.
For the third year in a row, the DoD has renewed its contract for MorphoTrust’s ABIS (automated biometric identification system). The ABIS system provides users with a software platform with the ability to search, process, compare, and manage identity data of enrolled individuals. ABIS facilitates the DoD’s stringent security measures by enrolling biometric images including face, finger, palm, and iris for use in near-instantaneous one-to-one and one-to-many identity checks. Essentially, ABIS coincides with the DoD’s record keeping, identity verification, identity management and deduplication goals.
“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.”
This new contract comes as little surprise to those familiar with biometric security, and MorphoTrust is the US leader in identity solutions and services. MorphoTrust uses years of expertise in flexible, scalable biometric platforms and systems to meet the rigorous demands of the DoD among other loyal customers. The MorphoTrust research team constantly leads the biometric security industry in their quest to improve the accuracy and search speed of algorithms that identify faces, fingerprints, and irises. Possessing a contracting base with clients such as the DoD and the FBI, MorphoTrust will likely be a major player in the biometric security industry for years to come.
