BIO-key International, Inc., a firm that offers finger-based biometric identification solutions, announced it has been awarded another contract for a fingerprint biometric identity solution built on the fusion of BIO-key and MorphoTrak algorithms. Prior to this, in September 2009, the first contract for this fused solution was awarded to MorphoTrak by Lockheed Martin (News - Alert). This fused solution intends to offer fingerprint identification technology for the FBI's Next Generation Identification (NGI) system. This new contract will result in the provision of extensive sophisticated finger matching technology to an overseas customer.
Mike DePasquale, the CEO of BIO-key said that, “The selection of BIO-key technology for another large-scale fingerprint identity system is further validation of BIO-key's position as one of the premier suppliers of the industry's most accurate and scalable fingerprint matching technology. As I predicted when we announced the first contract awarded for this fused solution, other agencies and commercial customers, looking to take advantage of the research, testing and decision by the FBI may reasonably conclude: If it is good enough for the FBI, it's certainly good enough for our organization.”
BIO-key International, Inc. is the designer and manufacturer of superior identification solutions. The company offers its solutions to commercial and government enterprises, integrators, and custom application developers. It offers biometric finger identification technology that is highly efficient, scalable, economic and easy-to-deploy. This technology precisely recognizes and authenticates users of wireless and enterprise applications.

These solutions help to enhance security, ensure identity, and lessen identity theft.
Mike Daniel Vassy, CEO of MorphoTrak said, “We are very pleased to once again have an opportunity to deploy this fused fingerprint biometric ID solution to meet the needs for a large-scale identity program. This additional contract enhances our position as the leading provider of fingerprint identification systems, supplying law enforcement and civil identification systems to numerous local and Federal government agencies worldwide.”
