Multi-Biometric Mobile Unit To Be Used In US Army Biometric Project
Cross Match Technologies has received a significant order for its SEEK II mobile biometric device from partner and prime contractor GTSI. This order is tied to GTSI’s recent award of the US Army’s Biometrics Automated Toolset (BAT-A) contract. The Cross Match devices procured as a part of the BAT-A program will provide the U.S. Army with the latest and most advanced all-in-one handheld biometric unit available on the market today.

Cross Match’s SEEK II combines multimodal biometric (fingerprint, iris and facial images) and demographic input capabilities in one lightweight, handheld mobile device that can connect wirelessly to military and law enforcement databases. The device is also capable of matching biometric inputs against an onboard “watch-list” database, providing immediate identification and verification of persons of interest.

“We are very proud to provide our most advanced biometric technology to the US Army. Today’s battlefield is complicated, and any tools Cross Match can provide to add clarity will go a long way toward making the world a safer place,” said Cross Match CEO David Buckley.

SEEK II is the only Appendix-F certified mobile handheld device on the market today. Appendix-F standards enable biometric records enrolled via the device to be more easily shared across and accepted by the three authoritative databases maintained by the Department of Defence, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Homeland Security.

“We are pleased to partner with GTSI and the US Army to deliver the right technology to soldiers that saves lives and help the United States and Coalition Forces fight the War on Terror,” said Fred Baradari, President, Americas and APAC for Cross Match.
