ImageWare Systems, a leader in multimodal biometric security solutions, announced that Los Angeles World Airports, a City of Los Angeles department that owns and operates Los Angeles International, LA/Ontario International and Van Nuys airports, has placed an order for a number of biometric identity management and credentialing software products developed by ImageWare Systems. These software products will provide the foundation for a new biometrically enabled identity management and credentialing system used to identify airport employees, contractors, and police at LAX and Ontario airports. Among the products ordered are ImageWare's multi-biometric capture application, as well as multiple identity management and credential issuance modules that are part of ImageWare's SOA-based suite.
Once professional services for customization and implementation have been added, the total value of the LAWA project to ImageWare is expected to be approximately $1 million for the first year.
“ImageWare is proud to play a role in enhancing security at one of the world's busiest airports”, said Jim Miller, Imageware Chairman and CEO. “Using our patented biometric management capability, we look forward to working with LAWA to create a model system for airports around the globe.”
