has been selected to supply the US Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) with additional FARGO HDP5000-LC ID card printer/encoders that include customised enhancements for large government project requirements.
The primary use of the HDP5000 printer/encoder will be to support the DoD’s Common Access Card (CAC) programme, one of the largest printing programmes in North America with more than 3 million technology cards produced annually.
The US Department of Defense has used HID Global’s High Definition Printing (HDP) technology for more than 10 years. According to the company it adopted the advanced FARGO HDP5000-LC printers in 2007, and has selected the printers for follow-on purchases in 2012 to complete the update of the remaining DMDC mobile and shipboard CAC personalisation systems. The HDP5000-LC is being sold and supported by system integrator Telos Corporation.
“As a supplier to the US Department of Defense, HID Global is pleased to continue the business relationship we have fostered with the DoD and Telos, and we look forward to providing card personalisation solutions to them for years to come,” says Anthony Ball, senior vice president, Identity and Access Management with HID Global.
