Biometric security firm Crossmatch has unveiled a new ten-print sensor solution designed to be deployed on mobile devices for a variety of critical identity scenarios.

The new FAP60 thin film transistor (TFT) sensor provides law enforcement, military and border management officers with the ability to process FBI compliant enrolments and rapid ID checks on a single device.

“There are several ten-print devices on the market today that claim to be the lightest and smallest,” said Ben Ball, government market director at Crossmatch. “Yet the optical technology in these devices cannot match the flexibility and mobility of our radically thin and lightweight TFT sensor.”

Crossmatch is introducing the FAP60 TFT sensor technology in a mobile handheld device with wireless capabilities to demonstrate its ability to integrate with existing phones, tablets and laptops.

“The options that the new FAP60 sensor deliver are expansive, offering the truly mobile ten-print capability our customers are demanding,” noted Richard Agostinelli, CEO of Crossmatch.

“Up to this point, mobile customers have been limited by smaller FAP30 and FAP45 sensors which do not meet FBI standards for enrollment. Being able to complete a mobile 4-4-2 capture without stitching opens up new use cases that previous and current market technologies are unable to fulfill.”
