The exact number of contracts, their value, the deployment schedule and the identity of the contracting agency were not disclosed by Viscount Systems.
"Due to the sensitive nature of these types of contracts, the company is unable to identify the agency," it said.
The system to be deployed at U.S. government facilities in three states -- Missouri, Nebraska and South Dakota -- is the Freedom Encryption Bridge, which allows entry devices such as ID cards, RFID readers and biometrics to be connected to, and controlled by, standard building IT networks. Expensive control panels for the system are not required.
Viscount Systems said Freedom Encryption Bridge, saves as much as 80 percent of the cost of other access control systems.
"We are pleased to continue to make progress in the U.S. federal government market, as we are seeing real revenue opportunities emerge from the success of our original pilot projects," said Stephen Pineau, president and chief executive officer of Viscount Systems, which is headquartered in Canada. "The scope of these initial projects is dwarfed by the opportunities for nationwide agency deployments we expect entering the coming year.
"With the recent release of the new U.S. Government FICAM [Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management] requirements, the advantages of Freedom over traditional panel-based access control systems will only increase."
