NEC and GAI deliver mobile biometric collection technology to ICE

March 28, 2016 - 

NEC and Government Acquisitions (GAI) have successfully delivered NEC Corporation of America’s NeoScan45 mobile fingerprint capture devices to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

In an effort to enhance existing fixed platform capabilities, ICE will integrate the 2 and 10 print mobile biometric collection devices to allow collection of biometrics in the field.

According to a statement by NEC, being able to identify and or verify subjects at the first point of encounter is essential for officer safety, timely and accurate decision-making, efficiency and effectiveness of operations.

“GAI is pleased to provide U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement with the Mobile ID solution,” says Jay Lambke, president, GAI. “This will help U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement leverage the rapid capture of biometrics by officers and agents in the field providing for faster results.”

“NEC’s NeoScan45 mobile ID handheld device capture of up to 10 fingerprints, both rolls and flats, and its multi-operating system support including both iOS and Android, led to the selection of the NeoScan 45,” said Raffie Beroukhim, vice president of Biometrics Solutions Division, NEC Corporation of America. “We are pleased to be part of this implementation team and work closely with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in this critical deployment.”

GAI also provides IT solutions to the Department of Defense and Federal civilian agencies via a broad range of contract vehicles including the NIH CIO-CS, NASA SEWP V, Army ITES-3H, GSA Schedule, and a series of other IDIQ and BPA contracts.
