Tech Mahindra has won a INR 300 crore ($43 million) contract to provide RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) based Access Card and the accompanying software solution to the Indian Navy.
As part of the ‘Armed Forces Secure Access Card’ (AFSAC) Project, Tech Mahindra will implement RFID based Access Control System across all naval bases and ships, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
The new AFSAC Card will replace the existing paper based Identity Card for all Navy personnel including dependents and ex-servicemen. Using the CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) level 5 processes, Tech Mahindra will develop a secure application to manage the access control devices, network devices and the AFSAC Card through a Data Center.
Scheduled to be implemented over the next two years, the project will ensure smooth issuance, handling, administration, management and life cycle support of AFSAC Cards on turnkey basis.
