MINNETONKA, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 14, 2005--Identix Incorporated (Nasdaq:IDNX) today announced the receipt of a competitive purchase order under the NASA SEWP 3 GWAC valued at approximately of $600,000 from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for the delivery of Identix TouchPrint 3000 series rolled ten-print live scan systems. The devices are being deployed by DHS at Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) sites to assist in the electronic scanning of fingerprints and to facilitate simultaneous verification from both DHS and FBI fingerprint databases. The live scan systems are all expected to ship and be installed in the Company's fiscal 2006 second quarter ending December 31, 2005.

Identix President & CEO Dr. Joseph J. Atick commented, "The Department of Homeland Security continues to be a leader in the adoption and deployment of biometric solutions to strengthen the security of our Nation's borders. Identix is proud to supply DHS with biometric solutions and we look forward to continuing to meet their requirements."

Identix TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Series

The TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Series exceeds the FBI Appendix F standard by providing 3.5 times the pixel density and 300 percent more contrast, resulting in images that have far more fine ridge detail than dictated by the Appendix F requirements. The TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Series employs technologies that take into account subjects with different size fingers and skin colors, sweaty fingers and users rolling fingers at different speeds. The systems produce clear, crisp fingerprint images with virtually no distortion or false minutiae that can be caused by smudging and smearing. TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Series systems are designed to maintain consistent image quality over time, and with no moving parts in the optics deck and no silicon pads or coatings to change, they provide maximum reliability and minimal downtime, lowering the total overall cost of ownership.

The TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Live Scan Series is comprised of rugged and stylized terminals for roll and slap fingerprint capture that can be integrated with software for a complete fingerprinting system in either desktop or transportable configurations, as well as standalone booking stations designed to withstand heavy traffic and harsh environments.
