Mission
To design, engineer, acquire, deploy and sustain enterprise biometrics solutions enabling identity dominance for the DoD.

Description
DoD Biometrics systems capture, transmit, store, manage, share, retrieve and display biometric data for timely identification or identity verification. These systems are mission enablers for force protection, intelligence, physical and logical access control, identity management/ credentialing, and detention and interception operations.

6.1.1 Biometric Enabling Capabilities (BEC)
Product Manager: LTC Eric Pavlick
Alexandria, Va.
703-697-2861

Mission
To design, engineer, develop, acquire, deploy and sustain an enterprise biometric system that serves as the DoD’s authoritative biometric repository. This biometric system enables identity superiority across the DoD as part of the BEC program of record (PoR).

Description
The DoD Automated Biometric Identification System (DoD ABIS) was developed as a quick reaction capability (QRC) for the DoD to receive multi-modal biometric submissions from collection devices, allowing the Soldier to positively identify and verify actual or potential adversaries. DoD ABIS v1.2 will be the initial baseline capability for the BEC program, BEC Increment 0.

BEC Increment 1 is an Acquisition Category (ACAT) 1AC program, and will replace DoD ABIS v1.2 in fiscal year 2016. Planned capability improvements include a customizable and web-based biometrically enabled watch list, a web-based NIPR/SIPR interface, additional sizing/throughput, mission assurance category level II sensitive continuity of operations and faster automated biometric match processing times.

Products and Services
• BEC Increment 1
• BEC Increment 0/DoD ABIS

6.1.2 Joint Personnel Identification (JPI)
Product Manager: LTC Jackie Barnes
Alexandria, Va.
703-697-2861

Mission
To design, engineer, develop, acquire, field and sustain an automated tactical biometrics collection capability configurable for multiple operational mission environments. This denies anonymity by providing the ability to positively identify and subsequently verify the identities of actual or potential adversaries, host nation personnel and third-country nationals. JPI enables identity superiority across the DoD as part of the Joint Personnel Identification version 2 (JPIv2) PoR.

Description
JPI fields biometric collection devices, which were developed as QRCs used to collect, match, store and share biometric data, including fingerprint, face, iris, and palm, as well as contextual information. JPI’s QRC systems include the Secure Electronic Enrollment Kit II (SEEK II), the Biometric Automated Toolset- Army (BAT-A), and Biometric Identification System for Access. JPI QRC systems enable positive identification, authentication, authorization and surveillance of individuals wherever U.S. forces operate.

The JPIv2, designated as an ACAT 1AC program, will replace existing QRCs beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017. JPIv2 offers improved data matching and synchronization, decreased size and weight and enhanced ruggedness. In addition, architectural improvements enable integration of emerging biometric technologies.
