Morpho (Safran group) has signed a contract with the Mauritanian Ministry of the Interior and Decentralization to implement a program for the production of secure national identification documents. This project is one of the components in the country's National Digital Confidence Framework program, and will foster more effective management of Mauritania's public records, while also bolstering security
within the country and at its borders.
Morpho will guarantee the secure issuance of ID documents for both citizens and residents, including multiapplication ID cards, polycarbonate data page passports, residence cards and driver licenses. For this, Morpho will use its multibiometric recognition system, combining fingerprint and facial recognition technologies.
This program also incorporates Mauritania Visit, a border control system that will help manage passenger flows such as issuance and control of biometric visas as well as a fingerprint recognition system to support the fight against terrorism and criminality.
“It is a great honor for Morpho to support Mauritania's advanced to revamp its national ID document system,” said Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and CEO of Morpho. “This customized project is a reference for us at Morpho, since it involves one of the first integrated systems of this type, combining citizen identification, production of ID documents and secure border control.”
