In keeping with its long history of supporting the US military, Cross Match Technologies announced yesterday that it has donated a suite of biometric identity management hardware to the United States Naval Academy Foundation.
The in-kind gift, made to benefit the Foundations’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, includes a wide variety of hardware. A number of Guardian Patrol ID ten-print fingerprint livescan devices were donated, as were ISCAN II dual iris scan devices, EF200 dual fingerprint scanners and mission-oriented biometric software (MOBS) solutions. Cross Match’s present to the Academy also includes the company’s newest biometric enrollment software: WEBS.
Cross Match’s biometric offerings are used in US overseas efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, playing an effort in identifying suspected terrorists, maritime pirates and individuals who have deployed IEDs.
