The deal involves system customisation, hardware, software licences, support and training services in relation to the management of digital images and other digital records for the Forensic Services Group and Operational Communications and Information Command.
Unisys also recently signed a contract with Queensland Transport for five years to design and build a facial recognition and biometric matching platform for the State's smartcard drivers' licence, rounding out a year where it grew its presence in Government.
A Unisys spokesperson confirmed the contract win, but was unavailable to comment further at the time of publication.
NSW Police has also recently announced Fujitsu Australia won a $1.3 million tender in December last year for software development for the Police Force Asset Confiscation System. Fujitsu also recently won a contract with Qantas, and acquired Supply Chain Consulting to improve its SAP capabilities.
