Indian UID Program Certifies Cross Match Biometric Devices

Cross Match Technologies : 02 September, 2010  (Company News)
Guardian fingerprint and I SCAN dual iris scanning systems from biometric specialist Cross Match Technologies have been certified for use on the Unique Identification Number program of the Indian Government
Cross Match Technologies has been recognized as the first certified supplier of biometric devices for India's unique identification numbers (UID) project.

Cross Match's rugged and dependable Guardian fingerprint capture device and the I SCAN dual iris capture device have been certified for UID. Both systems utilize Cross Match's patented Auto Capture feature which quickly captures high-quality images with minimal operator involvement.

The certifications were approved by the Standardization, Testing and Quality Certification (STQC) Directorate for the Government of India's Department of Information Technology (DIT).

"Upon returning from India, I was gratified to learn that Cross Match's Guardian and I SCAN devices have received certification," explains Jim Grau, President and CEO of Cross Match. "We look forward to being involved in the UID project and supporting this historic and progressive initiative."

Smart Identity Devices (Smart ID) is Cross Match's technology partner in India. Cross Match and Smart ID have successfully partnered to register and identify residents for various projects, including Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MNREGS), Employees' State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) program, the Public Distribution System (PDS), a pilot program of National Population Registry (NPR), a pilot program for the UID project and a proof-of-concept in Bihar. "Across the country, we have been able to easily capture high-quality images with Cross Match scanners," says Nirmal Prakash MD at Smart ID. "Despite harsh environmental conditions, the solutions have operated flawlessly."
