Crossmatch releases new line of fingerprint modules and readers
Crossmatch introduced Nomad, its latest line of biometric fingerprint modules and readers, at this week’s connect:ID conference in Washington, DC.
The Nomad line utilizes capacitive thin film transistor (TFT) technology to enable space-saving, lightweight modules and pocket-sized compact readers.
“Today’s highly mobile world demands identity products and solutions that are able to address the inherent use case and environmental challenges,” explained John Hinmon, vice president of global marketing for Crossmatch. “With the introduction of the Nomad line, we are delivering enhanced portability and true mobility for certified identity solutions.”
Nomad fingerprint modules are extremely compact, impervious to sunlight and offered in a range of FAP levels, making them ideal for integration into smart devices such as tablets and purpose-built handhelds. The Nomad USB readers’ low profile and lightweight design is ideally suited to jump kit applications requiring Appendix F certification. And the Nomad wireless reader cuts the cord for a truly mobile ten fingerprint livescan acquisition capability using the FBI’s required 4-4-2 capture methodology.
Pre-production samples will be availabile this July with the FAP level 30 and 60 modules, with other FAP sizes to follow. Nomad readers rollout this October, beginning with the FAP 60 wireless reader.
Just last month, Crossmatch was awarded a $5.8 million contract to develop next-generation presentation attack detection (PAD) technologies for the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) Thor program.
