    Anteon smart card deal

    IDN should make some money in this deal--

    Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics get green light on smart-card ID program

    Wednesday July 5, 5:07 pm ET

    The White House has given Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics the go-ahead to install a biometric identity system for federal employees.
    The system uses smart cards with a computer chip containing data on physical characteristics such as fingerprints. As many as 15 million federal employees and contractors will be required to begin using the identification system by Oct. 27 under a rule signed by President Bush.

    Bethesda-based Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT - News) and Falls Church-based General Dynamics (NYSE: GD - News) are both approved to begin installing the system.

    Lockheed, General Dynamics' Anteon unit and a third company, XTec of Miami, are each approved to supply a "complete end-to-end-solution"' for the new identity-card requirements.

    Because the cards hold biometric data, they will be "strongly resistant"' to fraud, tampering and counterfeiting, the U.S. General Services Administration has said.
