Psion Teklogix has signed a partnership agreement Sagem Scurit for the development of a biometric mobile computing solution.
Called MorphoCheck, the new system will allow authentication of ID-documents, including Electronic Passports, ID Cards, Driving Licenses and many other types of ID documents.
MorphoCheck is a mobile, autonomous, lightweight multimodal terminal. It is capable of scanning 2D barcodes on specific documents by reading the MRZ band on passports and ID cards via an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) swipe reader and reading the electronic chips (contact and contactless). The electronic chips the become a common component of such documents, capturing and matching fingerprints. It can also send all this information to a remote central server.
We are proud to partner with Psion Teklogix. Combining our know-how in biometric technology and their expertise in mobile computing will allow us to bring to the market the most secure biometric mobile computing solutions. This unique partnership reveals our synergies, said Jean Paul Jainsky, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Sagem Scurit.
Biometrics technology represents the future of security and we are pleased to be working with Sagem Scurit, a global leader in developing biometrics applications, said Jacky Lecuivre, Chief Executive Officer, Psion Teklogix Inc. We are thrilled to begin the development of a biometric mobile computing security solution that will help protect our customers for generations to come.
