Sagem Sécurité has signed a contract in Australia with the New South Wales Government's Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA), to supply and maintain a biometric face recognition system with a 15 million image database, for driver licences. The installation of this system marks a major technological advance that will reduce the risks of identity theft and document falsification for more than five million drivers, while also enhancing road safety.
"This latest contract confirms our excellence and advanced expertise in different biometric technologies,” said Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and CEO of Sagem Sécurité. “It also confirms our ability to supply solutions that meet the requirements of the Roads and Traffic Authority, by calling on the expertise of our local subsidiary, Sagem Australasia. With this contract, Sagem Sécurité consolidates its position as the preferred partner to Australian government agencies for security and Identity Management solutions.”
