LOCKHEED MARTIN wins contract to update server equipment for FBI fingerprint ID computers


SEABROOK, Md.- Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE:LMT) has been awarded a contract to provide the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division with Hewlett Packard Superdome and Uplift Kits. The award will have a total package value of more than $16 million over five years, if all options are exercised.

Under this agreement, Lockheed Martin’s Enterprise Solutions and Services business unit will build on its previous contract with the CJIS program, by providing Hewlett Packard Uplift Kits for 15 Superdome servers and 1 Flatsdome server. Lockheed Martin will also provide a PA-8900 Superdome server to the Clarksburg, W. Va. facility as part of a project to modernize computer and communications technology at CJIS.

The contract was designed to upgrade the FBI’s existing HP Superdomes, giving them additional processing power. A Superdome is a multiprocessing computer that is produced by Hewlett Packard and runs a UNIX operating system. It is used by the FBI for the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System. These upgrade kits will add additional processors and additional processor speed to the Superdomes that were originally installed in 2003 by Lockheed Martin.

Lockheed Martin supports CJIS in operation and maintenance of these systems and also serves as prime contractor for the division’s Technology Refreshment Program. As the FBI’s central repository for criminal justice information services, the CJIS division operates national-level crime data systems that furnish name checks, fingerprints, criminal history data and other information to law enforcement officials.

The 2003 Superdome installation streamlined and modernized the information technology infrastructure underlying these systems. The project was part of a multi-year contract that was awarded through competitive competition.

Steve Lubniewski, President of Lockheed Martin Enterprise Solutions and Services, said, “As a long-time partner with the FBI, Lockheed Martin is proud to continue serving an important role in the modernization of this critical infrastructure that is key to accomplishing the FBI mission.”
