TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) in Tallahassee is designing a new integrated criminal history system (ICHS) from Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC).

The FDLE ICHS will integrate a number of functions currently handled through multiple non-interoperable systems, and provide increased system speed and capacity. The company will develop and field a single system, running a database combining both criminal history information and fingerprint information, which is designed to significantly enhance law enforcement access to timely, vital information.

ICHS design, development, integration and test are being conducted in the company's Orlando offices, using software development processes assessed as being at Level 5 of the Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model, the highest attainable level. An Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is designed to provide FDLE officials and all members of the development team with near real-time, desktop access to program information and progress.
