IriTech's global business all started with its core iris recognition algorithm that addresses the shortcomings of Daugman-based algorithms in dealing with pupil dilation/constriction, segmentation error, occlusion, and image blurriness. Therefore, it had the best results in NIST test in both accuracy and interoperability, which means it could work well with iris images from other vendors too. As a result, it has been licensed (used) by US DHS, US Navy, Marine Corps, US Army CCDC, Lockheed Martin, etc. Since then, IriTech has been working closely with NIST to build up ANSI and ISO standards for iris industry.
Due to its diversified end-to-end iris biometrics solutions, anyone joining forces with IriTech will have instant access to a complete product line that can cater to any need in any market.
Despite being highly accurate, IriTech’s iris recognition algorithm is lightweight enough to be embedded into its iris camera products which make IriTech the first and the only vendor to receive the STQC certifications on all three categories of iris cameras (enrollment camera, discreet authentication camera, and integrated authentication camera) for the Indian government’s UIDAI project—an ambitious plan to issue biometric National ID cards to all 1.2 billion residents and to use them in all sorts of everyday transactions. Following suit, United Nations (UNHCR and WFP) have been using IriTech’s iris cameras for refugee registration and food / financial aid distributions worldwide since 2015.
Other advantages of IriTech’s cameras include their on-board cryptographic function that ensures end-to-end security and their availability as an OEM module that has enabled several third parties to easily and quickly add IriTech’s superior iris capabilities into their own devices (e.g., Northrop Grumman’s BioSled handheld device used by US SOCOM, InCadence’s Javelin+ series used by US Army and Dept. of State, or Laxton Group’s Chameleon tablets and phones used by Indonesian Police).
IriTech’s products receive rave reviews and purchase
orders/ contract awards from various governments, institutions and partners.
Now is a high time for biometric technology vendors, especially for iris biometric companies like IriTech. With the projected advent of IoT, the personal identification will be truly sine qua non, and with iris’ hard-to-fake nature and high accuracy, it is a matter of time before iris recognition becomes the de facto standard, especially in the increasing demand of touchless biometrics due to Covid-19. We believe that, for most personal identification applications, “the iris is the solution – and IriTech will provide it.”
