A-T Solutions Inc., a counterterrorism company based in Vienna, Va., has been awarded a $37 million order by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division in support of the Naval Expeditionary Forensics and Biometrics program to assist in providing forensic support to all branches of the military, according to a company press release this week.
“We are honored to have this opportunity to support the NEFB team in this extremely critical area of operations,” said Dennis Kelly, president and CEO of A-T Solutions. “Forensics and biometrics are especially essential to our nation’s and allies’ efforts to thwart terrorism and bring terrorists to justice. We look forward to our talented and highly experienced team providing exceptional in-field expertise, knowledge and technology tools to support the NSWCDD in this vital mission.”
The NEFB program provides expeditionary and reach-back forensic and biometric exploitation analysis support to various operational agencies, and aims to provide rapid results to meet intelligence, security, stability and law enforcement needs in the areas of forensic and biometric science. The program will help NEFB provide full-service forensic support to the Department of Defense and other operational entities worldwide.
