Apr 25, 2001, 01:00 ET from Identix Incorporated

    LOS GATOS, Calif., April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Identix Incorporated (Amex:  
 IDX), the worldwide leader in providing biometric authentication, security and
 identification solutions, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary,
 ANADAC, Inc. has been selected by the US Navy as one of 21 awardees to a $14.5
 billion Multiple Award Contract from the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA).
 The 15 year contract (5 year base with two
 5 year option periods) is an Indefinite Quantity, Indefinite Order type
 contract to provide program management, financial management, logistics
 management and engineering services through SeaPort, the portal being utilized
 by NAVSEA.  ANADAC has been designated a prime contractor on a team comprised
 of major defense and niche professional service providers.  According to
 ANADAC Senior Vice President for Defense Programs retired Admiral David
 Sargent, this is one of NAVSEA's first forays into e-business and is the
 catalyst for changing the model for acquisition of NAVSEA services.  The
 Company estimates the potential value to ANADAC to be up to $125 million over
 the fully-extended life of the contract.
     Identix President & COO James P. Scullion said, "This significant award is
 in addition to the more than $75 million in NAVSEA awards ANADAC has received
 over the past year and will add to ANADAC's backlog which stood at
 $129 million as of March 31, 2001.  ANADAC continues to be an excellent
 contributor for Identix in the government sector and we look for them to
 leverage this contract to sell Identix's security solutions into government
 programs, especially as the Federal Government expands its e-business and web
 based applications."
     Sargent commented, "Our selection as a prime in this NAVSEA initiative is
 an indication of ANADAC's strength in every one of NAVSEA's functional service
 areas and demonstrates the Government's continued confidence in ANADAC's
 previous performance, as well as in our ability to meet the demanding
 challenges of the future for NAVSEA."
