LaserCard Corp. has received a follow-on purchase order valued at $1.6 million for chip-ready, optical security media-based credentials for the Saudi Arabia national ID card program. Delivery is scheduled to occur in the company’s second fiscal quarter ending September 2010.
The cards, which are issued to Saudi citizens nationwide, includes a counterfeit-resistant optical security media used in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Green Card program.
LaserCard’s advanced ID credentials are used by governments worldwide to protect the personal identification of their citizens, foreign residents and government employees, and to provide official documentation such as driver licenses and vehicle registration cards.
LaserCard supplies cards for large-scale government ID programs worldwide, including the first and second-generation U.S. Green Card program, multiple Italian programs, the Angola National ID card program, the international professional driver license program in Hungary and vehicle registration programs for three state authorities in India.
