Security firm PAE has been selected to complete a $66 million Navy contract to provide the service with forensics and biometrics support.
The company will be working with the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division under the Naval Expeditionary Forensics and Biometrics task order. The task order was awarded through the Seaport-e contract, reports Washington Technology.
PAE will provide a wide range of services such as software engineering, DNA analysis, and inert ordnance examination and documentation.
“The Naval Expeditionary Forensics and Biometrics program serves an integral role in the military services’ identity management process by managing the collection, analysis and documentation of evidence. The information gleaned from these processes shapes actionable intelligence, which is a cornerstone of our national security apparatus,” said PAE CEO John Heller.
The opportunity came to PAE through its acquisition of A-T Solutions last year, which has supported the customer for more than five years.
