Precise Biometrics, a developer of biometric products and technology, has received an order for their Precise Match-on-Card licenses to kick off a new national ID card program potentially totaling $3 million over a four year stretch.
The country ordering the licenses, which has not yet been disclosed, is the fifth country to use such a system following Thailand, Qatar, Bahrain, and Portugal.
The Precise Match-on-Card system is a smart card system that requires no database. All of the user’s biometric information, as all the data that a physical sample needs to match, with is contained and encrypted on their ID card.
The new order will be added to the Match-on-Card system that has seen roughly 20 million card licenses and over 80 contracted licenses deployed already.
