January 9, 2009 — Datastrip Inc., a world leader in field-proven mobile identity verification technology, will provide its DSV2+TURBO® handheld biometric terminals to the U.S. Coast Guard for its Transportation Worker Identification Credential program. The DSV2+TURBO devices are specified in the Coast Guard’s contract with integrator SAIC.
The $2.3 million contract calls for up to 300 handheld terminals equipped with Codebench’s TWICCheck and PIVCheck software. The DSV2+TURBO devices will be used by the Coast Guard to read the biometric data on TWIC cards for ID verification at U.S. ports.
“Datastrip’s role in the TWIC program demonstrates our commitment to supporting Homeland Security efforts and providing devices that operate in the most demanding environments,” said Joe Delaney, Datastrip’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The DSV2+TURBO’s field-proven design, 16-hour battery life and resistance to harsh weather make it the right choice for implementing TWIC in rugged port environments.”
DSV2+TURBO devices are also being used in another Coast Guard initiative called Biometrics at Sea. This program is a field-test type of validation testing currently in place in the Mona Passage between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. It allows the Coast Guard to identify illegal immigrants intercepted in transit. In its first year, the program has cut the flow of illegal immigrants by nearly 50 percent.
