Biometric identity system donation to US Navy

Cross Match Technologies has made a gift-in-kind donation of biometric identity management hardware and software to the United States Naval Academy Foundation for the benefit of the Academy’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.

The gift included numerous Guardian Patrol ID ten-print fingerprint livescan and ISCAN II dual iris scan devices, several EF200 dual fingerprint scanners, MOBS mission-oriented biometric software, and Cross Match’s latest WEBS biometric enrollment software.

“The Cross Match hardware and software enhances the Academy’s Centre for Biometric Signal Processing by adding the ability to capture and analyze high-quality images of fingerprints and irises, allowing midshipmen to develop and enhance their knowledge in the area of biometric recognition and research,” said John Rudder ’78, senior director of development for the  United States Naval Academy Foundation.  “The donation provides immediate course enrichment—including the continuation of a key elective, Biometric Signal Processing, which required the addition of new equipment to keep its subject matter current.”

Cross Match has a proud history of supporting the military.  “Our employees in Palm Beach Gardens assemble SEEK multi-biometric handhelds and develop biometric software and applications that support the efforts of our servicemen and women around the world,” commented David Buckley, president and chief executive officer of Cross Match and USNA alumnus.  “This donation symbolizes our commitment to them and to ensuring that future military leaders have the most comprehensive biometric training.”

The Company’s biometric solutions have been widely reported on and shown in use in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Biometrics have played a key role in identifying suspected terrorists and linking of individuals to IEDs (Improvised Explosive Device), as well as identification of persons engaged in maritime piracy and smuggling.
