The World's First Non Optical FBI Appendix F Certified Fingerprint Sensor
Date:10/17/2011

SPARTANBURG, S.C., Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Biometrics, a South Carolina based innovator in the biometric fingerprint sensor market announced today that they have launched a new FBI certified, two-finger scanner for mobile applications. Named Watson, the device has been tested by The MITRE Corporation and was recently approved for the FBI's IAFIS Appendix F Certified Product List. Watson is the world's first non-optical scanner to achieve this level of certification.

Weighing in at less than a 1/4 lb. and only 70 mm X 63 mm X 32 mm in size, Watson is the smallest and lightest weight Appendix F, FBI certified, two-finger scanner in the world.  Watson's unique performance enables it to serve as an enrollment and/or verification sensor for single or multiple finger applications.

Integrated Biometrics recognized our government's need for a FBI certified, light-weight, durable, and mobile biometric fingerprint solution to help our war fighters, law enforcement officers and border patrol agents identify people who are threats to the United States. Watson provides unique benefits compared to existing sensors including a greater than 50% reduction in size and weight, ability to perform in direct sunlight, rugged durability and efficient use with no need to clean the scanner surface of latent prints.  Watson can be embedded in mobile devices or plugged into desktop, laptop or pad type computers through its USB connection.

Watson utilizes Integrated Biometrics' patented LES technology. LES technology uses a highly engineered polymer film that will only read a live fingerprint and works well with dirty fingers. Integrated Biometrics produces the Watson in both an embedded version and a standalone version and includes a complete SDK.

Appendix F certification is the most demanding live-scan certification on the market today and is conducted by The MITRE Corporation under strict guidance and oversight by the FBI.
