Suprema obtains nationwide electronic passport and biometric ID projects for Mexican Government

Published on 16 November, 2012
Suprema Inc., a leading provider of biometrics and ID solutions, announced recently that the company has won a nationwide electronic passport project of Mexico Government. The project, steered by Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores (SRE, Ministry of Exterior) of Mexico, is aimed to develop passport issuing system for 2.7 million electronic passports across all 32 states in Mexico including the Federal District of Mexico City. With the initial shipment, Suprema has supplied over 500 units of biometric and passport issuing devices, namely, RealPass-V electronic passport reader, RealScan-10 live scanner and BioMini fingerprint scanners. Furthermore, SRE has a plan to expand this newly-developed electronic passport issuing system to its overseas Mexican embassies and newly opening offices in domestic.  RealScan-10 fingerprint live scanner which captures 4-finger slaps and two-thumbs, replaces SRE’s existing single-finger readers to improve capturing speed and image quality of fingerprints. In addition, RealPass-V passport reader provides higher level of security on issuance of electronic passports and BioMini fingerprint scanner enables biometric sign-on using pre-registered fingerprint at SRE’s nationwide passport issuance stations.   SIASA, Suprema’s exclusive partner in Mexico, supplied the products to the SRE’s bid winner in cooperation with Suprema. SIASA also provided on-site technical support in integration of Suprema products to SRE’s existing infrastructure and technical assistance during pilot tests as well as system’s demonstration.
