EB Selected by Raptor ID To Develop the RaptorPAD and RaptorONE -- High-Tech Biometric Devices for Government Markets

ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EB, Elektrobit Corporation (NASDAQ-OMX: EBC1V), a developer of cutting- edge embedded technology solutions for automotive and wireless industries, today announced that its technology will be adapted to power two devices produced by Raptor Identification Systems, Inc. ("Raptor ID").  Raptor ID's  Mobile Biometric Products suite consists of the RaptorONETM, a revolutionary Android-based smartphone with full multi-biometric screening capability, and the RaptorPADTM, a state-of-the-art tablet with Full Biometric Enrollment capability. Both mobile devices will run on the EB-designed Specialized Device Platform, a customizable Android platform designed especially for the specialized vertical and government markets, such as public safety and first responder fields.

"The technology EB has packaged into the Specialized Device Platform is a disrupter for the specialized government markets because it is a customizable, cost-efficient platform that enables us to incorporate our advanced biometric technologies," said Charles Strasburger, Chairman and CEO of Raptor ID. "EB's platform is cost-effective and allows fast turnaround, which helps government agencies stay current with their handheld devices.  Rather than developing small batches of high cost, highly specialized product, EB's platform allows us to integrate low cost modular attachments to meet the needs of specific agencies, while simultaneously producing high volumes of core products at substantially lower cost per unit."

"With Raptor ID, EB will take today's technology, solve today's biometric challenges, and used commercial industry best practices to radically accelerate time-to-market," said Jani Lyrintzis, vice president Special Terminals at EB, "Raptor ID will combine robust communication capability and substantial processing power with their state of the art biometric technologies, enabling a wide variety of stand-alone and network-connected apps, fulfilling multiple Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice and Law Enforcement mission requirements all in one self-contained, multifunction, device."

The RaptorONE and RaptorPAD products represent a tremendous leap forward in the Mobile Biometrics field.  They will provide current communications and robust processing power with leading edge biometrics in a highly mobile, cost efficient device.  Raptor ID's exclusive Extended Depth of Field (EDOF) iris capture technology allows users to capture iris images with extraordinary clarity anywhere from 5"-9" away, enabling true one-hand point-and-shoot iris capture.  Raptor ID's exclusive TalonTM biometric capture interface is an intuitive, icon-based application that enables user training in minutes, not months. 

Raptor ID's products include:  Dual-core 1.5gHz processor | 1GB RAM | 128GB mass storage | 6,000 & 10,000 mAh hot swap battery | sunlight-readable display | IP-67 waterproof | -10oF to 160oF operating temperature range  | ruggedized to MIL-STD-810G  | Integrated smartcard reader, fingerprint, and  EDOF Iris Capture | Android 4.0 OS | GSM (Worldwide) - 850/900/1800/1900 MHz | UMTS/HSPA at 850/1900/2100MHz | WiFi 802.11 b/g/n.

The EB developed Specialized Device Platform won the 'Technology of the year Award' by Wireless Innovation Forum in December 2011
