September 23, 2013 - 

ImageWare Systems has just received an order from the city of Fredericton in New Brunswick, Canada, for a biometric identity management and booking system, worth approximately $125,000.

The new system is set to be connected to the city’s record management system and will allow for the submission of criminal fingerprints to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, as well as fingerprint processing for civilian applications. The ImageWare set up includes support for mug shot, signature and fingerprint data.

“Our basic identity management and booking system products continue to experience strong demand,” said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. “One of the unique features is that it will be provided in both French and English, which demonstrates the portability of our turnkey solutions in both international and domestic markets. We are proud to play a role in enhancing security for the city of Fredericton and look forward to similar agreements in the future.”

According to the company, the city will also use ImageWare’s “EPI Designer for LE reporting software,” to create employee or inmate badges.

Reported previously, ImageWare also recently announced a contract to an implement a federal iris recognition pilot test, through 20 state and local law enforcement agencies.

Earlier this year, ImageWare was awarded a $2.2 million contract from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to expand its personal identity verification credentialing capabilities. Under this particular contract, ImageWare will deliver software licenses during the third quarter of 2013, which the company says will see it receive approximately $1.5 million in revenue.
