“THOR (Tactical High-Threat Operational Response) uses facial, fingerprint, and iris recognition for access control…”
InCadence Strategic Solutions Corporation has won a contract to provide operational support for a major government biometric security project.
The company was selected by US Department of State’s Office of Acquisition Management for the project, which is in support of the Tactical High-Threat Operational Response (THOR), a multimodal biometric identification system designed to help secure Department of State facilities. THOR uses facial, fingerprint, and iris recognition for access control, and as such is a sensitive priority for the Bureau of Diplomatic Security, the specific beneficiary of this project.
In a statement announcing the contract, InCadence President Anthony Iasso said his team “is excited to support the State Department Bureau of Diplomatic Security with biometric technology to help keep our men and women serving at America’s diplomatic posts worldwide safer.”
The deal may be a sign of increasing popularity on InCadence’s part as a contractor for security-related government projects, coming soon after the June announcement of an FBI contract in support of a mobile biometric identification project. This latest contract covers a one-year base period, with renewal options for four more years.
