Cross Match supplies fingerprint readers for US biometric visa programme

Cross Match Technologies : 28 August, 2007  (Application Story)
Speed and accuracy of fingerprint capture yields order for 675 fingerprint scanners for US Consular department
Cross Match Technologies has received an order from the US Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs (CA) for 675 L SCAN Guardian livescan fingerprint scanner units and related software.
Cross Match previously has delivered to CA 650 Guardian units and related software. Those units have been deployed to consulates in El Salvador, England, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere. The additional 675 Guardian units and software purchased by CA will be deployed to other international locations by the end of 2007.
These deployments are part of the Department of State's Biometric Visa Program. This program is designed to increase security in the visa issuance process by capturing ten fingerprints from applicants seeking visas to enter the United States and checking those fingerprints against government databases.
James Ziglar, president and CEO of Cross Match noted that, "We designed the Guardian and its related software to meet the government's need for smaller, lighter technology that can auto-capture, segment, quality score and format ten fingerprints in less than fifteen seconds. We are very pleased to receive this follow-on order from Consular Affairs and grateful for the opportunity to contribute to enhancing and protecting our national security."

Cross Match Technologies provides integrated biometric products and services to Government agencies, law enforcement bodies, education, health care and transport as well as the private sector.
The Cross Match product portfolio includes facial recognition software, fingerprint readers, palm and full hand scanners and document readers. This technology is linked into biometrics information management software and access control systems.
These products are being actively deployed in the areas of border control, document registration, defendant processing, background checking and vetting, access control and identity fraud prevention.
