PAE awarded Naval expeditionary forensics and biometrics task order under SeaPort-e IDIQ
PAE has been selected to perform the Naval Expeditionary Forensics and Biometrics (NEFB) task order under the U.S. Navy SeaPort-e IDIQ, the Arlington, VA-based company announced September 21. The period of performance is for four years and has a total approximate value of $66M if all options are exercised.
Under the task order, PAE will provide the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division with CONUS, OCONUS and shipboard services to support the Weapons Control and Integration Department’s forensics and biometrics requirements. The wide spectrum of services provided will range from software engineering to DNA analysis to inert ordnance examination and documentation; all of which combine to enable the Department of Defense forensic exploitation process to be carried out in expeditionary locations.
“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. “Our employees, who joined PAE in last year’s acquisition of A-T Solutions, have supported this critical mission for over five years and are proud to enable the systematic application of forensic exploitation procedures around the globe.”
