Eurotech Receives 2M USD Follow-On Order for Catalyst TC Embedded Module for Homeland Security and Defense Application

Cross Match orders more embedded modules to support production of its handheld biometric identity device

Amaro (Italy) – April 16th, 2012 – Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products and systems, today announces Cross Match has issued a $2 million purchase order for the Catalyst TC module, which is used in its handheld device for homeland security and defense applications. The modules will be delivered over the next 12 months.
The Catalyst TC, based on the Intel Atom processor E6xx series, is a highly integrated and flexible embedded module that offers multiple communications, I/O, and multimedia capabilities with low power consumption in a small footprint.
“We have a need for more Catalyst TC units because we have seen an increased demand for our products,” said Shawn Mokhtari, Cross Match Technologies Senior VP of Technology. “Eurotech has been reliable and on time for the duration of our relationship, and we look forward to working with them as we continue to deliver our biometric identity solutions to the marketplace.”
The Cross Match product is a homeland security and defense solution that also offers optional 3G communications support and built-in wireless networking capability that allows field personnel to access remote databases as part of a biometric identity solution.
“Cross Match biometric products are extremely important to many people, and it’s gratifying to be part of their solutions” said Greg Nicoloso, CEO of Eurotech in North America. “Our Catalyst line of computer on module boards helps customers with demanding requirements and we look forward to addressing the next challenging project.”

Eurotech Announces SekuFACE, Biometric Face Recognition Systems for Security Applications

SekuFACE biometric face recognition systems are compliant with ICAO standard (ISO/IEC 19794-5) and achieve high accuracy rate in all light condition

Amaro, Italy – March 26, 2012 – Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, SekuFACEproducts and systems, today announces the launch of SekuFACE, a new family of IP-based Biometric Face Recognition Systems that target demanding security applications where intelligent association of personal identity and permission rights is needed. Based on biometric mapping of face images and their automatic validation against the ICAO standard (ISO/IEC 19794-5), SekuFACE systems dramatically simplify compliancy and privacy issues, while providing at the same time fast and reliable facial recognition.

SekuFACE systems detect human faces and match them with reference biometric tracks allowing to identify the subjects and monitor their transit through checkpoints and access passages in restricted areas. SekuFACE delivers extreme reliability, with an accuracy rate of 95% in any light condition. Accordance with ICAO standard ensures consistent quality of all samples while biometric mapping and user-configurable automatic deletion policies streamline the compliance of installed systems with privacy regulations.

SekuFACE enables effective monitoring of large structures by activating multiple access security levels, tracking simultaneous targets and managing hierarchical access gates. Easy to be interfaced with other data sources, such as personal ID lists and badge readers, SekuFACE is also naturally suited to implement cross-checking of credentials for an higher level of security.
