MorphoTrak to Supply Massachusetts Police with new State-wide Morpho Biometric Identification System

Alexandria, Va., October 29, 2012

Morpho (Safran group), the leading provider of identification systems, is pleased to announce that the Massachusetts State Police (MASP) has selected its U.S. subsidiary, MorphoTrak, to provide MorphoBIS, its next generation Biometric Identification System, for the Commonwealth's new statewide system.

At the leading edge of biometric identification technology, MorphoBIS enables real-time identification of suspects and criminals. This crime-solving tool fully integrates fingerprints and palm prints, providing high-volume searches throughout the Commonwealth by federal, state, and municipal agencies. Its intuitive and customizable workspace, robust unified architecture and large database capability meet the needs of criminal justice agencies. The results are unrivalled accuracy and enhanced productivity as more crimes are solved more quickly.

"This 'future-proofed' solution permits the rapid integration of new biometric modalities and transaction types," said Daniel Vassy, President and CEO of MorphoTrak. "We are excited to create a strong, lasting partnership with MASP, starting with the full conversion of existing biometric data."

As the supplier of the biometric identification systems in five neighboring states, MorphoTrak is in a unique position to offer and facilitate future interoperability where numerous states on the eastern seaboard could cross search each other in the future, leading to more identifications and convictions.

Morpho's biometric matching technology is ranked #1 by NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) for lights-out latent fingerprint accuracy, providing agencies with the most cost-effective solution to process large number of latent searches while allowing their experts to focus on the most critical cases.
