Biometric Hell: U.S. Army getting new BAT kits

Biometrics are measurable physical characteristics such as fingerprints, iris scans, facial recognition, hand geometry, palm prints, handwriting, voice and DNA. Defense Department biometric systems capture, transmit, store, share, retrieve, exploit and display biometric data for timely identification and verification. The BAT-A system includes an enrollment kit consisting of a laptop and attached biometric collection devices capable of enrollment, verification and identity detection, together with mobile handheld devices for collecting, storing and uploading pertinent data to Army biometrics collection centers. A system of servers containing the biometric database maintains and synchronizes information, ensuring that data collected at one location is available at others. "We are delighted to win BAT-A and this contract positions GTSI as a leader in mobility and biometrics integration and support for our war fighters," said Sterling Phillips, chief executive officer of GTSI. "GTSI is committed to delivering best-in-class technology solutions that serve the Army's mission-critical needs."
