Eyelock Demonstrates Its Ground-Breaking Iris Authentication Solution at the 2019 DHS Biometric Technology Rally


NEW YORK, NEW YORK – May 17, 2019 – Eyelock, a leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, announced today that the Company recently participated in the 2019 Biometric Technology Rally hosted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) at its Maryland Test Facility (MdTF) in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The event took place from May 9-17 and showcased the latest technology from Eyelock, the ruggedized nano EXT which is the world’s first indoor/outdoor iris reader.

The annual DHS Biometric Technology Rally aims to challenge leading providers in the biometrics industry to provide face, fingerprint and iris recognition systems that meet specific Department of Homeland Security use cases.

With the focus on face, iris and fingerprint data collection systems, as well as biometric matching algorithms that can achieve the defined performance targets, the Rally calls for the development of high-throughput biometric platforms that provide fast and accurate user recognition for DHS operations and applications such as passenger entry and exit and security checkpoints.

“We are very pleased that our cutting-edge nano EXT system was selected as an industry-leading solution to participate in the Department of Homeland Security’s unique and real-world testing environment, which presents objective analysis on the performance of all biometrics, including the next generation of iris,” said Jeff Carter, CEO of Eyelock. “This was an exciting opportunity to demonstrate the latest innovation in iris-based identity authentication and showcase our highperformance capabilities in use by partners around the world. The innovative nano EXT technology is designed for high-performance even on an unhabituated population of diverse physical characteristics, packaged in a product which is vandal-resistant and can operate outdoors and even in sunlight.”
