DHS and TSA Award Contract For Biometric Platform for Fingerprint System

Aware, Inc. AWRE +3.76% , a global provider of imaging and biometrics software, today announced that it has won a competitive contract to provide the Transportation Security Administration ("TSA") of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security with a "COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) Fingerprints System" and associated installation support, training, and maintenance. The solution will utilize Aware's Biometric Services Platform (BioSP), a COTS, service-oriented biometric application server, to submit standard-compliant "EFTS" fingerprint records to the FBI for employee background checks, and provide a user interface to view results and generate reports. BioSP will perform various required workflows and functions associated with the background check process, including acceptance of records in EFTS format from TSA-approved collection agents, validation of the compliance of records being submitted, receipt and proper distribution of FBI responses, and temporary storage of records during the background check process. BioSP includes a browser-based user interface, which will be used by authorized personnel to view background check results, generate reports, and other administrative tasks.
