Rugged biometric packs for US border services

MorphoTrak : 24 May, 2016  (New Product)
Snap and MorphoTrak collaborate on the LiveScan portable systems for acquiring biometric information at borders in all climatic and operational conditions
Rugged biometric packs for US border services

MorphoTrak will provide 50 rugged, portable and climate-hardy LiveScan Jumpkits to the US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) under partnership with Snap.
The LiveScan Jumpkit is a product for biometric acquisition in severe environments, such as the US southwest border, and can be transported and used in military operations and natural disasters. Wherever the kit is required, it can be deployed quickly and efficiently, thanks to its portability. The entire kit is made up of components designed to resist harsh conditions: the MorphoTop fingerprint scanner, travel document machine readable zone (MRZ) reader, face capture camera, rugged laptop and rechargeable battery are packed in a secure, watertight carrying case.
CBP will use the Jumpkits at US borders to capture fingerprints and face images from visitors to the country and enrol them in a database as current visitors. Captured biometrics can also be searched against selected databases, using standards-compliant transmission. The results can be transmitted back to the unit or another location, speeding biometric identification in situations where time is of the essence.
Steve Vinsik, MorphoTrak Vice President, Criminal Justice and Public Security, commented, "The Jumpkits will provide CBP employees with an enrolment system that is reliable and functional in a wide range of challenging conditions, which means that agents have the tools they need to perform the critical mission of documenting who is crossing the country's borders. We are pleased to be partnering with Snap on this valuable contribution to the country's security."
Snap President Navneet Gupta added, "Initially, we viewed the partnership with MorphoTrak as a path to incorporate their products into our service offerings. Now, with in-depth exposure to MorphoTrak during the course of implementation of a project, we believe that MorphoTrak's biometric products are well suited to support our goals and the missions of multiple agencies under DHS, DoD and other federal agencies. Snap's biometric products, based on MorphoTrak systems, could be an answer for current challenges as well as a wave of the future."
