InCadence to Produce Handheld Biometric Devices for US Marines

Virginia-based InCadence has won a major new contract to supply biometric identification devices for the US Marines.

The contract concerns a device called the IDS-MC, for “Identity Dominance System-Marine Corps Increment 2”. It’s a handheld unit allowing soldiers to capture face, fingerprint, and iris biometrics and match them against a database. The IDS-MC Inc. 2 is intended to be a faster, enhanced version of the original IDS-MC, and will be light enough that Marines can more easily carry it into field operations.

InCadence will produce IDS-MC Inc. 2 systems and software, and offer maintenance support and spare parts, according to the terms of the contract. The term of the agreement extends to May of 2025.

As Military Aerospace Electronics reports, InCadence was selected for a Marine Corp. Rapid Innovation Fund contract back in June of 2018, bringing the company into a program aimed at stimulating private sector development of technologies that can later feed into military acquisition programs.

InCadence’s latest contract win comes after the company landed a $20 million contract to provide biometric technology for the US Army. More specifically, that agreement tapped InCadence to provide biometric hardware and software for a Department of Defence Biometrics office Near Real Time Identity Operations task order.
