AOptix gets GSN Border Security Platinum Award for biometric ID system
Awarded for its AOptix Insight Duo product, the company announced the award in a blog post this week. The GSN Border Security Awards Program recognizes vendors that produce the most innovative and technologically advanced products and solutions used in border security.
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, AOptix was awarded a research contract from the U.S Defence Department (DoD) to examine its Smart Mobile Identity biometrics identification package and to eventually provide the department with a smartphone solution for scanning someone’s eyes, face, thumbs and voice.
The contract, worth $3 million, also includes work with CACI International.
AOptix demonstrated its Insight Duo airport security product to BiometricUpdate.com at the 2012 Biometric Consortium Conference & Biometric Technology Expo.
Last year, the company appointed Scott Clark, VP of operations, shortly after the company split its company into two separate units: Identity Solutions, and Communications.
