Motorola Biometrics Solution Will Help Protect Delaware Citizens with Improved Identity Technology


ANAHEIM, California. – 10 April 2006 – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) has been awarded a contract by the Delaware State Police to deploy Motorola’s latest generation multi-biometric identification system, the Motorola Printrak Biometric Identification Solution (Printrak BIS). This system will be used for both civil employment background checks and criminal identification and will provide law enforcement personnel with enhanced identification capabilities and greater crime solving tools.

“We chose Motorola because in addition to exceeding our technical requirements, they employ structured, repeatable systems engineering discipline that can be called on now and in the future to deliver upgrades,” said Captain Galen Purcell from Delaware State Police. “The Motorola solution will provide for a full system for fingerprints, palmprints and mugshots for Delaware and its agencies in the fight against crime and terrorism”.
The Motorola Printrak BIS is an integrated biometrics system that stores a variety of information including: fingerprints, palmprints, iris prints, facial images, signatures metrics, and descriptive information of the person fur use in areas such as job applications, e-passport and criminal investigation reports.
The system can be set to automate information processing (lights out), which help to lower operating costs and reduce resources needed for operation. Motorola’s advanced technology approach leverages the powerful relational database capabilities of Oracle Database 10g hosted on hardware platforms composed of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components to provide Delaware State Police with increased system flexibility and modularity.
Motorola is a leading provider of Mission Critical communications solutions, including civil biometric solutions and Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) that help public safety agencies track and accurately identify individuals. Motorola is one of the world’s leading biometric companies, with solutions in more than 37 countries and in more than 300 agencies.

“The system provides full biometric integration and interoperability, for a comprehensive solution for civil applicants and criminal identification and verification,” said Darrin J. Reilly, General Manager of Motorola’s Biometrics Unit. “The award of this key state contract is another indication that our technology is the most advanced and most flexible COTS based solution in the industry.”
