Integrated Biometrics Provides Scanner for New Corvus Handheld

Corvus Integration has unveiled a new multimodal handheld that leverages fingerprint technology from Integrated Biometrics (IB). Dubbed the Tetrad ID Sleeve, the lightweight device offers iris, face, and fingerprint recognition, the latter of which is delivered via IB’s Five-O ten-print fingerprint scanner.

The Five-O is an FBI-certified FAP 50 scanner, and provides fingerprint enrollment and verification in a compact, energy-efficient form factor. The device weighs in at less than 200 grams, which makes it ideal for the collection of fingerprints while in the field.

“It’s the smallest ten-print device on the market, which gives our users tremendous flexibility,” said Corvus CEO Jeff Kormanec.

“Our Light Emitting Sensor technology is enabling a variety of new devices due to its size, durability, ease of use, and low power requirements,” added Integrated Biometric Executive VP David Gerulski. “This combination has energized our partners to design devices unimaginable just a few years ago.”

That sensor technology was used to build IB’s ultra-thin FAP 30 scanner, which was released in June. The company’s various solutions were also recently deployed in a SIC Biometrics handhelds designed for law enforcement. 

For Corvus, the ID Sleeve is the latest addition to the Tetrad line of products, which previously integrated an Identiv card reader in an effort to increase its appeal to border control officials.
