The U.S. Navy has awarded CrossResolve a potential three-year, $17.2 million contract to provide biometric identity research services for the military branch’s Special Surveillance Program.
CrossResolve will help the Navy explore contactless and standoff biometric facial, iris- and fingerprint-recognition technologies as well as data analytic tools and communication channels, the Defense Department said Monday.
The company will perform work through April 2019 in Morgantown, West Virginia, and in Patuxent River, Maryland.
DoD said the obligated amount of $50,000 at the time of award is from the Navy’s fiscal 2015 research, development, test and evaluation funds.
CrossResolve, a woman-owned small business founded and led by former FBI executive Valerie Evanoff, works with commercial and government clients to help them research and develop biometrics, forensics and identity intelligence platforms.
