E-Seek, Inc is pleased to announce its role as a supplier in the recently announced contract awarded by the TSA to MorphoTrust USA (Safran) to provide Enhanced Credential Authentication Technology (E-CAT) at selected U.S. Airports. The contract will allow TSA travel document checkers to scan passenger credentials at airport checkpoints as opposed to the current visual inspection.
As the 1D Card Reader component within the E-CAT solution, the E-Seek Model 500 will rapidly read multiple security features imbedded in a passenger’s identification card and pass on the data to MorphoTrust® Document Authentication software for analysis to ensure the card has not been altered or is counterfeit. The product’s unique design features a single slot input that is independent of orientation – upside down, backwards, or forwards – so that the Model 500 will analyze and read the card regardless of how it is submitted.
After the card is inserted, the Model 500 sends a 600/1200 DPI image of both sides of the card; UV images of the front and back of the card; an IR image of the front and back; and ASCII decoded data of the barcode and magnetic stripe.
MorphoTrust has provided identity solutions and services to the TSA for more than eight years. It is the prime contractor for TSA’s Universal Enrollment Services (UES) and TSA Pre✓™. UES has successfully consolidated the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) and Hazardous Materials Endorsement Threat Assessment Program into a single service with convenient enrollment locations nationwide.
E-Seek Inc, which designs and manufactures bar code readers for verifying drivers’ licenses, was platinum winner in GSN’s 2013 Border Security Awards in the category of “Best Identification Document Verification Solution”. With barcodes now being used in drivers licenses issued by all 50 states, E-Seek produces desktop readers as well as a line of compact, portable and wireless readers that are widely used in law enforcement patrol cars, banks, casinos and hospitals. In a major announcement at the Border Security Expo, Mr. Lebaschi introduces the E-Seek Model M-500 desktop reader, a breakthrough product that the company has been working on for five years that can not only read the barcode on a drivers’ license, but can also authenticate the ID card itself. Lebaschi provides a detailed demonstration of how the M-500 scans each card in three different types of light, enabling it to read the hidden features, colors and patterns that are imbedded in the cards and deliver results in 3 seconds. He also discusses the Model M-500’s 3rd party software that has a library of 2500 different card templates that can be identified and verified by the Model-500.
