Paris, February 9, 2011

Morpho (Safran group) is pleased to announce the launch of MorphoIDent, the latest handheld mobile device in its line of criminal justice solutions. Designed for public safety agents and officers in the field, it enables real-time, on-the-spot identification based on fingerprint recognition technology.

MorphoIDent is a robust, pocket-sized device using state-of-the-art identification technologies. In addition to its modern design and glossy finish, it boasts user-friendly features such as intuitive pictograms, folder management, vibration alert and an easy-to-use keypad. Fingerprints are captured with an FBI certified optical PIV sensor, including real-time automated quality check, and matched against local, national or international databases. Results are displayed on the device's large color LCD screen, giving officers fast access to critical crime solving information. MorphoIDent can be easily integrated into existing IT architecture without incurring additional infrastructure costs.

"MorphoIDent meets the need expressed by customers for compact yet reliable identification solutions for police forces on the move," said Jean-Paul Jainsky, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Morpho. "With over 35 years' experience in automated fingerprint recognition technologies, Morpho confirms its position as world leader in the field."

MorphoIDent is well-suited for field applications such as patrolling, public gatherings, or in burglary and crime scene investigations. In addition to the FBI certified PIV sensor, it has received full EC and FCC certification.
