Identix to support Naval Research

Identix Inc., a provider of biometric security solutions, announced Dec. 16 that its subsidiary -- Identix Public Sector Inc. -- has received a contract from the Office of Naval Research (ONR).

Under the contract, Identix Public Sector will provide program management support to ONR, including technical management of scientific research projects. It also will provide financial and information management support to several scientific departments at ONR.

The value of the contract is about $2 million for the initial two-year base period, with an extension provision that could raise the value to $5.3 million over five years.

Identix offers a range of security access products, including fingerprint scanners and facial recognition devices. The Minnesota-based company recently merged with Visionics Corp. of New Jersey, making it one of the largest biometric security companies in the world.

The company has also been tapped by the Defense Department to participate in the second phase of the Common Access Card Biometric Working Group (CAC/BWG) technical evaluations.
