Special Operations Command, Army, eye biometrics to authenticate identities of deployed warfighters | Military Aerospace

A Request for Information (RFI) on methods of continuously authenticating user identity by a person’s distinctive characteristics using software-based biometrics or behavioral profiling is being sought by the Army Contracting Command-Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG), Huachuca Division, Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Meanwhile, under a continuing Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), the U.S. Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) Program Executive Office (PEO) for Special Reconnaissance, Surveillance, and Exploitation (PEO-SRSE) — a component of USSCOM Special Operations Forces Acquisitions, Technology & Logistics (SOF AT&L-SR) — has requested “White Papers” from the biometrics industry for a biometric product line of “technologies to collect, analyze, and distribute various physical parameters that can be used to identify personnel.”

Both actions to authenticate the identities of warfighters are connected, though you wouldn’t necessarily understand the connection until both the RFI and the “White Paper” are viewed in the perspective and context of The U.S. Army Concept for Cyberspace and Electronic Warfare Operations 2025-2040 strategy document.
