High throughput fingerprint scanning technology

L-1 Identity Solutions : 16 July, 2009  (New Product)
Agile TP from L-1 Identity Solutions scans a full set of fingerprints in less than 10 seconds providing high throughput identification for civil applications
L-1 Identity Solutions has introduced Agile TP, a new live scan fingerprint solution designed for high-volume civil identification programs. The lightweight, easy-to-use device is capable of capturing a full set of flat fingerprints in less than 10 seconds. It is ideal for civil identification systems used at border control checkpoints, airports or other security terminals, and background checks at job application centers where speed and accuracy are a necessity. Initial shipments will begin in August to a recently awarded program in Latin America.

Civil identification systems must be simple to use and require no level of technical proficiency on the part of the user. At the same time, the system must be technically sophisticated to process high volumes of people rapidly and accurately, without causing delays or inconveniences. The innovative Agile TP user interface enables untrained individuals to use the system with ease, assisting with proper finger placement and improving processing times. Compact and portable, the Agile TP is easy to install and launch and is powered by a standard USB-2.0 interface. Advanced technologies enable the capture of more and better fingerprint data, such as fine minutiae and ridge detail in all fingerprint types, thereby reducing variability and the need for recaptures which lead to processing delays. The Agile TP weighs less than five pounds and has a large platen size of 3.2 inches x 3 inches for even greater portability and usability.

Richard Agostinelli, President of the Biometrics Division of L-1 Identity Solutions stated, "We offer more options and flexibility for any civil application where live scans are used, giving our customers the ability to pick and choose depending on their budgets and requirements. The addition of Agile TP puts us in a strong position to take advantage of a rapidly growing market for biometric civil ID applications."

The Agile TP meets a wide range of international government standards. It is certified for use with Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) systems and is Personal Identity Verification (PIV) approved for the identification and authentication of Federal employees and contractors. Agile TP also meets the European Union RoHS Regulation, a standard that restricts the use of specific hazardous materials in electrical and electronic products.

L-1 offers a wide range of fingerprint devices for criminal, military and civilian applications. This includes single fingerprint readers for forensic and commercial use, slap and roll devices for criminal and civil applications, and a rugged live scan version for military use in harsh environments. More than 15,000 L-1 live scan systems are installed globally today.
