MaxID Corp, a leader in the identity management market, announced today that the iDL520 handheld multimodal biometric device it developed is being used for a U.S. Army contract awarded to Stanley, Inc. earlier this year. Stanley won the contract for the development of a mobile multi-spectral fingerprint technology solution and chose the iDL520 offering from MaxID, which features the Lumidigm sensor.

The deployment of the iDL520 units in the field will represent an important transition of the multispectral-imaging technology to a mobile problem set.

MaxID Corp, a leader in the identity management market, announced today that the iDL520 handheld multimodal biometric device it developed is being used for a U.S. Army contract awarded to Stanley, Inc. earlier this year. Stanley won the contract for the development of a mobile multi-spectral fingerprint technology solution and chose the iDL520 offering from MaxID, which features the Lumidigm sensor.

Brian Skiba, Vice President of Strategy and Product Development at MaxID Corp notes, “The deployment of the iDL520 units in the field will represent an important transition of the multispectral-imaging technology to a mobile problem set. MaxID Corp is very supportive of looking well beyond optical fingerprint reading to find the best solutions for the problem at hand. In the requirements for Stanley, the iDL520 was without doubt the best fit.”

The iDL520 mobile biometric device is part of an expanding family of devices from MaxID Corp. The unit includes WiFi and 3G connectivity, GPS capability, a hot-swappable battery, and a contactless reader in a small rugged form factor.

“Teaming up with MaxID Corp to deliver a mobile multispectral solution has worked very well,” said John Ritchey, Stanley vice president. “MaxID was able to quickly integrate the multispectral imaging sensor into their handheld platform and proved an instrumental partner in supporting our application development. The iDL520 is part of an overall field-based solution that can be used to greatly enhance support for force protection, civilian disaster assistance, border security, law enforcement and intelligence collection efforts. We believe the solution will be an important capability for the warfighter and can be employed in the Concept of Operation of numerous Battlefield Operating Systems, including military police, military intelligence and Special Operations forces.”

The iDL520 is part of a broader product line of biometrically-enabled devices, including the iDL500 device used for TWIC/PIV enforcement and compliance under the Maritime Security Act and the IDL750, an Atom and Windows-based multimodal computer used for a variety of applications, such as border protection, identity verification and field-based biometric enrollment.
