Lockheed Martin has offered the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) a solution for rapid nationwide deployment of biometric identification cards for the next phase of the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) program. The Lockheed Martin team bidding the proposal includes Daon, Datatrac, Deloitte Consulting LLP, MAXIMUS Inc. and LexisNexis Special Services Inc. TWC is intended to provide a standard, secure biometric identification credential for the nation’s transportation workers. Phase IV of the program will initially require the winning contractor to successfully enroll and credential approximately 850,000 maritime workers at the nation’s ports within 18 months of contract award. TSA will remain responsible for security threat assessment for all TWIC applicants. The previous phase of the program, TWIC III, involved creating a prototype credential and completing the enrollment of a sampling of transportation workers. During this phase, Lockheed Martin provided system design services as well as the enrollment hardware and software; Daon provided the identity management software and system architecture support, according to LM.
