Ares FBI Mobile Biometric ApplicationManassas, VA – March 21, 2016 – InCadence Strategic Solutions is pleased to announce the award of a prime contract to provide a Mobile Biometrics solution to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division, Global Initiatives Unit (FBI CJIS GIU). The single-award, full and open contract, is for a period of performance of one base year and four option years.

InCadence will be responsible for providing software solutions to capture biometrics on Android-based devices that will give the FBI the ability to perform a biometric collection via smart phone. This collection includes fingerprints, facial photographs, and contextual information for submission and receipt of a response, via the Android-based application from any location with cellular service. The application will allow agents to quickly establish the identity of a subject in order to aid in the conduct of an FBI investigation.

InCadence is excited to introduce our Commercial Off-The-Shelf solution, Ares, to the FBI for this work. Ares is a micro-kit biometric collection and submission platform, running on the Android operating system, designed for Federal, State and Local Law Enforcement use. Ares features a plug-in architecture and incorporates the Integrated Biometrics Watson fingerprint reader for fingerprint collection and the built-in-device camera for photographs. Ares is capable of rapidly collecting biometrics, photographs, biographical data, packing and validating transactions, and submitting transactions and receiving match responses from Federal, State and Local Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS).

“I am very proud of the dedication and effort our team has put into developing Ares.  To be able to support the FBI, and the important work they do for our communities, is a privilege and the pinnacle for any engineering team and for our company,” says John McIntyre, InCadence Director, Intelligence and Biometrics. InCadence is a world leader in biometric technologies for defense, intelligence community, and law enforcement customers at the Federal, State and Local level.
