PIER Portable Iris Enrollment and Recognition Device
- Pier is a fully self-contained iris enrollment and recognition system. It can function as a standalone device or in combination with customized network applications for identity recognition, security and tracking.
Pier Version 2.2 has been incorporated into the Biometric Application Toolset (BAT), a multi-biometric security platform under development by the U.S. Army Battle Command Battle Lab. The BAT is being distributed to the U.S. Navy, Marines, Army and other agencies through a coalition of the Battle Lab, U.S. Department of Defense and other U.S. government agencies.
In 2003, an advanced prototype of Pier Version 2.2 was deployed with U.S. special operations forces in Iraq. It is currently deployed worldwide in support of Operation Enduring Freedom for numerous missions, including port security. SecuriMetrics has also received purchase orders or requests for Pier from the U.S. Department of Defense Biometric Fusion Center, the Office of Law Enforcement Technology Commercialization (OLETC) and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR).
