Aware supplied biometric solution deployed by US Navy
Sep 13, 2013 (M2 EQUITYBITES via COMTEX) --
Aware Inc (Nasdaq:AWRE), a provider of biometrics software and services, on Thursday announced the deployment by the US Navy of a mobile biometric solution supplied by Aware as part of the Navy's Identity Dominance programme.
This solution includes a hardware-agnostic software application developed by Aware to operate on third-party ruggedized biometric capture devices.
Aware said that the application uses software APIs that are part of Aware's COTS SDK product offerings and provides a user interface designed specifically for use by military personnel in challenging environments.
Also, Aware supplied the Navy with its Biometric Services Platform (BioSP), which is used by the Navy to centrally manage and update the software on the devices.
Reportedly, the development of the software application was funded through multiple phases of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award initially won by Aware in 2010. As a key supplier to the programme, Aware procures third-party hardware, installs and tests the software on the devices and delivers a complete solution to the US Navy.
In addition, Aware will provide demonstrations of its software products in its booth at the Biometrics Consortium Conference and Technology Expo taking place 17 September 2013 to 19 September in Tampa.
