Company to Maintain and Enhance the Biometrics Automated Toolset - Army System

SAN DIEGO and MCLEAN, Va., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAI) today announced it has been awarded a task order by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office - Enterprise Information Systems (PEO-EIS) to provide engineering support to help maintain and enhance the Biometrics Automated Toolset - Army (BAT-A) system. The task order has a one-year base period of performance, three one-year options and a total contract value of more than $37 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily in Sierra Vista, Ariz., and Kingstowne, Va. The task order was awarded under the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions -- 2 Services (ITES-2S) contract.

BAT-A devices collect fingerprints, iris scans, facial photos and biographical information of persons of interest and store information in a searchable data base, facilitating the use of biometrics for intelligence exploitation. The system provides Government forces with the ability to identify, track and exploit individuals encountered in the Global War on Terror. Through this task order, the SAIC-led team will help ensure continued, reliable technical support to BAT-A systems, peripherals and networks.

"SAIC has been the lead BAT-A engineering contractor since 2003, and we look forward to contributing to the growing biometrics support our fighting men and women are receiving throughout the world," said John Thomas, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
