OTI scoops US$6 million eID deal
31 May 2011
On Track Innovations has won a US$6 million order for the next stage expansion of a national ID programme.
The company says the new order supports an existing ID project, which was announced last year, and is part of the country’s effort to modernise and improve the security of its eID cards. Last year, OTI supplied its technology based on its proprietary eID Magna platform in support of the nationwide infrastructure setup. The system includes both stationary and mobile stations for data enrolment and card issuance, the creation of a central national registry database, as well as the provision of contactless, highly-secured smart ID cards and a Biometric Automatic Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), to detect and prevent double registration attempts by the same ID applicant.
According to OTI, its secured ID technology supports both online and offline communication, thereby allowing every citizen, living in cities and rural areas, to apply for an ID card regardless of the area’s communication infrastructure.
"We are proud to be the technology and implementation partner of our governmental client’s national ID system,” says Oded Bashan, chairman and CEO of OTI. “The level of professionalism and execution capabilities demonstrated by the government has been second to none. Together, we were able to meet the strict implementation timeline, allowing for the continuation of the project.”
