a contract for
a Fingerprint Identification System
This contract is for a biometric live scan full hand and fingerprint identification system. This transaction is for the purchase of patented criminal identification and law enforcement equipment (plus programming, installation, training, and support service), with optical technology, hand-capture imaging design, and anti-smearing and anti-smudging technology all proprietary to Identix. This equipment features a higher dimension of image quality and clarity, intuitive operation, increased accuracy, a single stationary camera and patented fixed optics system for fewer moving parts, a patented curved non-coated platen for full-palm readability, and a pixel density and performance capability that exceeds FBI Appendix F Standard requirements -- all of which ensuring better data, maximum reliability, reduced variability, less downtime, easier training and operation, simpler maintenance, lower on-going operating costs, and all making this enhanced definition system unique to any other similar systems on the market. This patented equipment is therefore economically procurable from only one source.
