Sabre Hardware Development Engineer Ghanshyam (Ghanu) Dave and Software Development Engineer Todd Lutton of the Northeast Region were part of a six man team that received a patent for the development of a Multi-Function Smart Communications Card. The patent covered various embodiments related to a smart card. When not connected to an external system, such as a laptop computer, the smart card can be configured to power itself. Thus, various functions can be practiced on the smart card in absence of a connection to the external system. Example functions of the smart card include user identification and authorization. In addition, the smart card can be configured in order to distinguish between different users and provide different access levels to different users and/or different access to containers resident within the smart card. This can be done prior to when the smart card is connected to the external system.
A more simple understanding: This is an improved smart card that enables multiple communication protocols that can be used to support several modes of user and system authentication. Improvements include power storage, data transport and authentication modes.

Sabre is a member of two teams that were awarded three-year, multiple award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts for the U.S. Army’s Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC), Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD). Sabre is a member of the Booz Allen Hamilton team in the unrestricted category and DHPC Technologies in the restricted category. A total of four awards were given out in the restricted category and an additional five awards were distributed in the unrestricted category. The four restricted winners were also given separate unrestricted awards. The work awarded under these subcontracts will be managed by the Operational Vice President of the Northeast Region, Charles “Chuck” Strimpler.
The services provided under this contract include a blend of operational, program management, technical, engineering, integration, prototype development and fabrication, program support services and products necessary for I2WD to meet its mission and customer needs. The work under this contract will be performed primarily at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.
According to the Sabre Operational Vice President of the Northeast Region Charles “Chuck” Strimpler, “This contract win gives Sabre the ability to expand our footprint into new, highly technical and highly classified areas at Aberdeen Proving Ground. We must compete for task orders with the other primes, however, Sabre has a great reputation at APG and with our primes as well and subsequently I am confident that we will continue to expand our presence at APG into this new ISR arena.”
A special “thank you” to Jeannine Roso, Vince Sieracki, and Todd Lutton for their support for helping capture this award.
