L-1 Identity Solutions Inc. has received more than $9 million in task orders from multiple customers for 1,460 PIER and PIER-T iris enrollment and recognition devices, 535 HIIDE Expansion Module Jumpkits and more than 10,000 batteries for biometric devices. The company expects to begin shipments in the third quarter of 2008. The names of the customers cannot be disclosed.

The PIER uses the L-1 Daugman iris recognition algorithm for biometric matching.
The EM Jumpkit has a variety of configurations depending on customer demands and includes a HIIDE device, a HIIDE Expansion Module, an L-1 TouchPrint 4100 Live Scan device for slap and roll fingerprint capture, and battery, in a highly compact and ruggedized case.
