LaserCard Corp. announced receipt of a purchase order of approximately $1.5 million for the supply of ID cards for Italy’s Foreign Resident Card program. The order calls for deliveries to be completed during the current fiscal quarter, ending September 30.
Italy’s Foreign Resident Card utilizes LaserCard’s counterfeit resistant optical memory technology in combination with other security features, including the company’s Personalized Embedded HologramHD, a feature used by inspectors or agents when electronic readers are not available.
Italy’s national printer and mint, Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato S.p.A. (Poligrafico), and the government’s prime contractor on the project, will add a contact IC chip to enable access to government services prior to personalizing and issuing the cards to authorized non-EU residents.
The purchase order was received from LaserCard’s Rome-based Authorized Value Added Reseller, Laser Memory Card S.p.A.
