Immigration, border security, and terrorism driving interest in Integrated Biometrics technology


According to a statement by the company, global events surrounding immigration, border security, and terrorism are driving increasing interest in advanced mobile fingerprint scanner technology from Integrated Biometrics.

This interest – particularily in the company’s patented light emitting sensor (LES) film – is resulting in new customers and international organizations asking Integrated Biometrics for its technological advice and best practices in developing the next wave of mobile fingerprint scanners.

Company president Mike Grimes commented on the increasing interest. “Any company can point to increased sales, which we are seeing, but the amount of time our team is spending participating in symposia, conferences, and tradeshows all over the world is a substantive example of the industry clamoring for our leadership in building advanced biometric enrollment and verification products”.

Grimes noted that Integrated Biometrics’ fourth-quarter 2015 international activity included: EU LISA (European Agency for the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice); Biometrics and Identity 2015 in London; Asia Pacific Homeland Security 2015 in Singapore; CARTES Secure Connexions 2015 in Paris; the Smarter Borders Conference and London; and, the 11th Government Discussion Forum on Electronic Identity in Bangladesh.

In the United States, Integrated Biometrics staff was a part of the International Security Conference (ISC) East in New York City, the Dataworks User Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the 10th Annual Homeland Security Week in Arlington, Virginia.

Grimes commented that Integrated Biometrics team members at international events are often asked questions regarding the company’s ability to produce truly mobile certified sensors due to its patented LES film.

This technology is made up of a multilayer polymer composite containing nano-scale particles that give off light in the presence of an electrical field. When a finger is placed on the film, the live skin of the individual serves to form a closed, low-level circuit that generates narrow wavelength light through the luminesce. This produces a reliable, high-resolution analog image of the fingerprint which meets or exceeds the quality standards of the FBI, whose fingerprint standards are followed around the world.

The biometrics identification and authentication applications of LES film-based fingerprint solutions range from military and law enforcement field work to border security to secure purchases for consumer smart phones.

Integrated Biometrics is currently confirming Q1 2016 event participation requests to events including Intersec in Dubai, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement summit in Washington, D.C., and connect:ID.
