L-1 Identity Solutions Unveils PIV-TWIC Access Control Reader Device Designed for Extreme Outdoor Operating Conditions

STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:ID), a leading provider of identity solutions and services, today released a series of indoor, weatherized and extreme access control devices for the commercial and government market. An order has already been placed for the 4G PIV-TWIC Station Extreme, designed to meet the specialized needs of ports, military bases and airports. All of the products are being demonstrated this week concurrent with the ASIS International Conference in Anaheim, California and at the Biometrics Consortium Conference in Tampa, Florida in booth #401.

“Our access control solutions can now perform in any operating condition and in any government and commercial installation,” said Robert V. LaPenta, Chairman, President and CEO of L-1 Identity Solutions. “I am particularly pleased with our new PIV-TWIC reader, a solution that is a direct response to the need for a more robust device for securing access to our nation’s ports. Early feedback on the unit from the field indicates that it is significantly stronger than other readers under pilot at the ports today and we believe much of the functionality we offer in the unit today will set a new standard for the industry in the future.”

The 4G PIV-TWIC Station Extreme is ruggedized and can withstand sub zero climates of -13 degrees Fahrenheit and desert temperatures of 158 degrees. It is IP 65 certified and capable of operating in severe downpours, ice and snow. The unit consistently identifies users regardless of finger conditions that may be wet, greasy, severely dry or cut or damaged. It also includes added security features such as fake fingerprint detection and anti-spoofing capabilities. Other key features of the PIV-TWIC Station include:

  • Single units read multiple credential types, performing biometric verification for PIV, TWIC and CAC-EP cards, visitor and transition cards (MIFARE, DESFire).
  • Features large 3.5 inch color LCD display screen and can display 2D color images contained on cards.
  • Leverages the latest communication standards with support for Ethernet, PoE and wireless LAN (WiFi).
  • Offers flexible deployment options with single, two- or three- factor authentication.
  • Accommodates MARSEC and threat level security requirements with the ability to operate in several different modes.
  • Provides extensive storage capabilities at the device level for locally stored hotlists, Certificate Revocation Lists (CRL), event logs, biometric templates and more.

The Extreme and indoor versions of the 4G PIV-TWIC Station meet Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) ICE certification requirements as mandated by the Transportation Security Administration Authority (TSA).

Other new products available for the commercial market include the 4G V-Station Extreme for harsh operating environments and two weather resistant readers for moderate outdoor conditions, the 4G V-Flex WR and 4G V-Station WR.
