We are delighted that the United States Coast Guard has deployed our combined hardware and software solution to carry out their enhanced security screening mission.
Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2010
MaxID Corp, a leading global provider of identity solutions delivered and assisted the United States Coast Guard in deploying its MaxIDValidate Mobile Software running on the iDLMaxG multi-modal handheld devices.
The MaxIDValidate software is currently being used to validate each crew member on-board LNG tankers bound to the United States from Yemen. The software integrates biometric and biographic data from relevant U.S. data repositories and is based on required crew information submitted from the inbound ship. The software integrates the data to allow a digital “flip-book” with photos of each crew member and then allows U.S. Coast Guard boarding officer’s to biometrically validate the identity of those crewmen onboard.
The United States Coast Guard recently began conducting enhanced security screening onboard High Interest Vessels (HIVs) such as Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) tankers inbound to the United States from Yemen. "We are delighted that the United States Coast Guard has deployed our combined hardware and software solution to carry out their enhanced security screening mission. We were able to deploy a solution within weeks, given the sense of urgency around national security." said Brian Skiba, Vice President of Product Development and Corporate Strategy at MaxID.
The iDLMaxG is a multi-modal, rugged mobile computer that offers a complete set of features - including QWERTY keyboard, contact card, contactless card, barcode, optical fingerprint, and optional magnetic swipe and MRZ readers with a digital camera, GPS, and comprehensive communications capabilities. The iDLMaxG can read TWIC, SID, CAC, PIV, PIV-I, FRAC cards, passports, driver's licenses as well as fingerprints to verify identity. The MaxIDValidate Mobile software is able to integrate with biographic and biometric data from industry-standard formats such as EFTS segments drawn from U.S. data sources. The application combined with the iDLMaxG device can be used from a collection of biographic and biometric data from crew members as well.
