The Biometrics Division of L-1 Identity Solutions, a Stamford, Conn. provider of identity solutions and services, has received $9.6 million worth of new orders for HIIDE and PIER mobile biometric recognition systems that are being deployed in areas of conflict. Two thirds of the HIIDE order and all of the PIERs are expected to ship in the third quarter. The remaining HIIDEs will be shipped in the fourth quarter.
HIIDE is a rugged tri-modal mobile biometric enrollment and recognition device providing real-time identification using iris, finger and face biometrics. First introduced in 2005, it is the most pervasive device of its kind with over 10,000 devices deployed in areas of global conflict. More than 4,500 PIER devices are in the field today, used for iris-based mobile biometric enrollment and identification.
