iBeta Completes Biometric Testing for Sandia
iBeta Quality Assurance
(“iBeta”), a National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) accredited Biometrics Testing Laboratory
, has completed the first task order that consisted of Conformance Testing of Mobile Biometric Products under a Testing Contract awarded by Sandia National Laboratories for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate specifically the Homeland Security Advanced Research Project Agency.
Under this first task order, iBeta conducted and reported on Data Interchange Standard Conformance Testing to ANSI/NIST ITL-1-2011 on two mobile biometric devices and their components. The testing determined conformance of the output transaction records for the items under test to the standard, which is the latest base standard used by the FBI, DoD and DHS for queries against large scale biometric repositories (IAFIS, ABIS, IDENT). iBeta provided results documentation to Sandia, DHS and the device manufacturers (specific only to their device).iBeta’s Biometrics Team was very excited to work with and complete their first task order with Sandia. During execution of this first task order, Sandia evaluated iBeta’s testing process and rated iBeta as outstanding in that iBeta’s performance consistently exceeded contract requirements in all of the following categories; Quality of Products/Services, Safety/Security, Schedule, Financial, and Contract Compliance/ Management.
iBeta’s Biometrics Team is available to perform Mobile Biometric Testing on various biometric systems, devices and components under the Sandia contract or other contract vehicles, including commercial entities. iBeta looks forward to continuing a strong working relationship with Sandia National Laboratories and the Department of Homeland Security.
