AOptix Technologies, Inc., (AOptix) (www.aoptix.com),
a leading provider of advanced optical technologies and products, today
announced that Unisys, a worldwide information technology company, has
become an AOptix strategic alliance partner. Unisys will offer AOptix
InSight® iris recognition and face capture systems to its customers
using biometrics for identity verification, national border management
and aviation security.
AOptix iris recognition solutions already process tens of thousands of
biometric transactions per day. Applications include aviation security
at Gatwick Airport in London and other major airports, and immigration
control such as all the air, land and sea border crossings in the State
of Qatar. AOptix has earned a respected reputation by transforming the
biometrics industry with leading edge products that are fast, accurate,
and easy to use in large populations.
"Iris recognition is a non-contact, non-invasive technology approach
that is very accurate for high confidence authentication," said Terry
Hartmann, Vice President for Global Security Solutions at Unisys.
"Unisys will be integrating AOptix products into the proven Unisys LEIDA
(Library of eID Artifacts software) framework, which creates building
blocks for identity and credentialing solutions to accelerate
development and reduce implementation time."
"From national identity programs to busy aviation checkpoints, our
InSight systems are well suited for high throughput, high volume
deployments where ease of use is critical - especially when language
barriers are present. Subjects of all heights simply stand in the large
capture zone, look at the system, and we do the rest in seconds," said
Dale Bastian, Vice President of Sales at AOptix.
