ImageWare Systems Awarded Federally Sponsored Paid Pilot for Iris Recognition Across 20 Agencies
SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2013) - ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) (ImageWare), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has been awarded a contract for software and services in support of a paid pilot from an undisclosed United States federal agency to implement iris recognition throughout 20 state and local law enforcement agencies.
Acting as a subcontractor to Iris ID, ImageWare will supply its QuickCapture™ application to public safety agencies participating in the one-year iris recognition pilot. ImageWare's QuickCapture will be used to manage multiple types of Electronic Biometric Transmission Specification (EBTS) transactions, including enrollment, identity verification and investigative searches. During the course of the pilot, ImageWare's solution will be implemented in over 20 agencies to evaluate the use of iris recognition, primarily in correction facilities.
"Additionally we have recently been notified that we have been awarded a paying pilot worth approximately 100,000 to provide a biometric application, utilizing iris recognition to a prime contractor working with a major U.S. federal agency. We estimate that we will complete delivery of those products in the fourth quarter of this year."
assume that PR is it.
.as many have posted the USG takes forever. "in the one-year iris recognition pilot"... hoping the financial institution pilot has a higher probability of shifting to a contract and converting to revenue in the 90 days.
