Motorola Introduces Mobile Biometric Identification for Handheld Computers

Biometric attachment for Motorola MC70 and MC75 enterprise digital assistants delivers real-time, mobile identity management to government,

public safety and enterprise security agencies

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Biometric Consortium Conference 2008 (Booth 211) -- Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced a biometric attachment for its MC70 and MC75 enterprise digital assistants (EDAs). The mobile solution provides government, law enforcement and enterprise security agencies with advanced biometric identification and verification tools as well as real-time mobile data access delivered in a single, rugged mobile computing platform.

The solution enables law enforcement officers to stay on patrol while identifying individuals with outstanding criminal issues or warrants and also helps to enhance border control management as agents can utilize the mobile solution to verify immigration status in remote areas. Government and enterprise security agencies can leverage the solution to help ensure proper access privileges for individuals and verify real-time employment status.

"Today, government, public safety and security agencies are looking for innovative ways to continue to drive operational efficiency and improve organizational knowledge," said Girish Rishi, vice president and general manager, Motorola Applications and Data Solutions. "Motorola's MC70/75 EDAs with the new biometric attachment are uniquely suited for the mobility needs of government officials, law enforcement officers and enterprise security agents. This solution helps agencies increase productivity and enhance response time at the point of activity."

Part of Motorola's MOTOA4(TM) portfolio, the MC70/75 EDAs with biometric attachment feature a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) platform, offering agencies enhanced solution flexibility with an ecosystem of peripherals and accessories. The standards-based platform also enables flexibility in the delivery of applications as the biometric attachment supports Motorola's Mobile AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System) solution as well as applications developed by third parties. Government and public safety agencies can utilize mobile identity management capabilities along with other applications on the same handheld computing terminal, helping to optimize department expenditures and maximize return on investment.

The GSA (General Services Administration) FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) 201 certified fingerprint sensor in the biometric attachment is optimized for mobile environments, allowing agents to capture one to 10 fingerprints in a variety of lighting and environmental conditions. Optional contact and contact-less smart card readers can be used to verify the identity of individuals against secure documents such as ePassports, ID cards, visas or employee ID badges.

Designed to match the rugged standards of the MC70/75 EDAs for use in harsh environmental conditions such as drop test, operating and storage temperatures and humidity specifications, the biometric attachment enables government officials, law enforcement officers and enterprise security agents to accurately identify an individual in real-time and securely access agency information resources in mobile environments.

The development of biometrics technology for the MC70/75 EDAs is another innovation resulting from the acquisition of Symbol Technologies in 2007. By combining the complementary technology portfolios of Motorola and Symbol, Motorola continues to deliver solutions that address the unique needs of government, law enforcement and enterprise communities. Motorola is committed to ensuring that communicating with technology becomes second nature to government and public safety officials. The MC70 and MC75 EDAs deliver multimodal voice and data communications, GPS tracking capabilities, integrated 1D/2D barcode scanning and optional auto-focus color camera image capture, in a single, compact and rugged form factor.

Motorola is showcasing the biometric attachment for the MC70/75 EDAs at the Biometric Consortium Conference, Sept. 23-25, 2008 at the Tampa Convention Center, Booth 211.
