Integrated Biometrics Joins EDGE Innovation Network

(PRZOOM - Press & Newswire) —  Greenville, SC, United States, 2010-01-18 - IB announced it has joined the EDGE® Innovation Network, a collaborative, open-environment initiative enabling industry and academia


Integrated Biometrics announced today it has joined the EDGE® Innovation Network, a collaborative, open-environment initiative enabling industry and academia, with government input, to work together to enhance the delivery cycle of new technologies and innovative capabilities to warfighters and first responders much faster than the typical acquisition cycle.

“We are pleased to contribute our biometric physical and logical access control system technology to the EDGE network,” comments Steve Thies, Integrated Biometrics CEO. “Integrated Biometrics is providing next-generation fingerprint-based identification solutions to help meet the increasing demand of high-security environments where the military and first responders currently operate.”

Sponsored by General Dynamics C4 Systems, the EDGE has already delivered several innovations including a Soldier Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Receiver or SIR to the U.S. Army. About the size of a Blackberry®, the SIR device delivers real-time streaming video directly from multiple manned or unmanned assets directly into the hands of soldiers on the ground. Currently, there are over 10 projects in development intended to improve and enhance warfighter capabilities.

Pete Palmer, EDGE Innovation Network director, said, “The EDGE bridges gaps between end-user needs and current capabilities by promoting rapidly prototyped solutions that could close those gaps quickly. By applying the EDGE process, the government can quickly and cost-effectively review multiple options for users to evaluate in months rather than years.”

There are currently five EDGE Innovation Centers worldwide and over 100 EDGE members. Recent new members include The University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pa.; Viecore Federal Systems Division, Eatontown, N.J.; Aspen Systems, Marlborough, Mass.; Florida State University, Tallahassee, Fla.; and the University of California at Santa Barbara.
