Fairmont, WV — Athena Sciences Corporation (“Athena”) has received a contract from the DoD PM Biometrics to install, configure, and operate an Automated Biometrics Identification System (ABIS) for a US Partner Nation through a foreign military sale. Using various biometric modalities (e.g., finger, face, iris) the ABIS will perform biometric matching to assist in establishing the identities of enrolled subjects in support of Partner Nation use cases.
Athena has provided biometric services and products to the DoD PM Biometrics continuously for over nine years across four different contracts to provide ABIS solutions for US and partner nations and perform Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR).
“We are pleased to continue developing biometric solutions for the DoD PM Biometrics. With the leading talents and technologies from our team members EPS Corporation, Ideal Innovations Inc., and NEC we are prepared to deliver a cost-effective, purpose-built solution”, according to CEO Dan McCaugherty.
“Our micro-service design uses cloud-ready technologies, encapsulates the biometric matching technology, and is flexible to changing transaction types enabling us to quickly implement, test, and deploy ABIS configurations”, according to CTO Dan Nawrocki. “We see this solution as a blueprint for an ABIS at this scale.”
Athena Sciences Corporation is a HUBZone certified small business headquartered in Fairmont, WV with operations in the Capital beltway, Pittsburgh, PA, and Asheville, NC.
