Company to ship biometric solutions to multiple customers

L-1 Identity Solutions, a leading provider of identity solutions and services, announced it has received more than $9.0 million in task orders from multiple customers for 1,460 PIER and PIER-T iris enrollment and recognition devices, 535 HIIDE Expansion Module (EM) Jumpkits and more than 10,000 batteries for biometric devices. The Company expects to begin shipments in the third quarter of 2008. The names of the customers cannot be disclosed.

"We continue to see strong demand for our biometric enrollment and recognition devices, with particular interest in its superior image capture and on-board matching capabilities that in turn produce faster and more accurate identifications every time, even in the harshest of operating conditions," said Robert V. LaPenta, Chairman, President and CEO of L-1 Identity Solutions.

The PIER is a rugged handheld iris enrollment and recognition device used by law enforcement officers and military personnel around the world to quickly and accurately identify subjects real-time in the field. PIER devices have onboard data capacity storage of up to 200,000 iris templates which allows for flexible in-field identifications and can match an unknown individual against a database of millions with extremely high accuracy within seconds. The PIER-T is connected to a PC or laptop. The PIER uses the highly accurate L-1 Daugman iris recognition algorithm for biometric matching.

The EM Jumpkit has a variety of custom configurations depending on customer demands and includes a HIIDE device, a HIIDE Expansion Module (EM), an L-1 TouchPrint(TM) 4100 Live Scan device for slap and roll fingerprint capture, and battery, in a highly compact and ruggedized case.
