Aware Supplies Saudi Arabia with Biometrics Software to Help Facilitate Pilgrimage Travel

BEDFORD, Mass., Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aware, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWRE), a leading global provider of biometrics software and services, today announced that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has begun deployment of several of Aware's COTS biometrics software products as part of an update to their visa issuance management process. The new system utilizes Aware's Biometric Services Platform (BioSP™), as well as Universal Registration Client (URC) and related APIs. BioSP is a modular, centralized, service-oriented application used to implement workflows and manage data exchange between various government departments. URC is a biometric enrollment application that will operate on hundreds of workstations at consulates and visa service centers globally to collect biometrics from potential visitors to Saudi Arabia. Aware served as the principal subcontractor to Fujitsu Arabia Ltd. on the project. Aware also recently announced that it supplied products and services to Fujitsu for a similarly-scoped biometric visa applicant screening system deployed in Canada.

"The new system in Saudi Arabia highlights the scalability of Aware's biometric services platform, designed to handle as many as sixteen thousand biometric enrollments in a single hour," commented Rob Mungovan, Vice President at Aware. "The deployment serves as yet another example of Aware's COTS products and subcontracted services being used by an integrator to successfully field an advanced, biometrics-enabled visa issuance solution."
