Lockheed Martin Team Completes Key Design Milestone on Federal Bureau of Investigation's Next Generation Identification Program
Date:9/5/2009

ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) -led Next Generation Identification (NGI) team has successfully completed Critical Design Review (CDR) for the system's fingerprint identification capability, clearing the way for further progress on the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) new multi-modal, state-of-the-art biometrics system.

"This is the first step in achieving the quantum leap in capability that NGI will deliver as a state-of-the-art biometric identification system for the FBI," said Barbara Humpton, vice president, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Services. "The NGI team is thrilled to begin the immediate development and integration of these fingerprint search components into the system as we continue to meet milestones on schedule and on budget."

The fingerprint identification technologies for the NGI system are being provided by Alexandria, Va.-based MorphoTrak. Lockheed Martin selected the MorphoTrak technologies after a rigorous trade study process that objectively evaluated solutions to select the right biometric technology at the best value.

In addition to expanding fingerprint processing capacity, the NGI system is being designed with a significant degree of technical flexibility to accommodate other biometric modalities that may mature and become important to law enforcement efforts in the future.

The Lockheed Martin-led team also includes Accenture, BAE Systems Information Technology Inc., Global Science & Technology (GST), IBM and Innovative Management & Technology Services (IMTS).

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 140,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation reported 2008 sales of $42.7 billion.
