Morpho South Africa selected to provide a single multi-biometric platform for all the identification requirements of various government departments

3rd of May 2017
Safran Identity & Security, through its subsidiary Morpho South Africa, has signed a contract with the Government of Botswana, represented by the Botswana Police Service, for an upgrade and rationalization of their legacy AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System) platforms into a single, multi-biometric and multi-use new-generation platform.


Once again, the Botswana Police Service (BPS) is renewing its trust in Safran Identity & Security’s leading technologies and capacity to deal with complex demands. Indeed, since 1998, the BPS has regularly chosen the company’s products or solutions to meet its requirements.

This future multi-biometric system will use both fingerprint and facial recognition and will serve all the identification requirements of various government departments. It is the first step for the rationalization of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) systems in the government of Botswana.

This will be one of the most advanced and complex systems ever delivered in terms of integration with multiple systems and the segregation and security of the data of each department.

Morpho South Africa will also deliver numerous liveScan and cardScan stations as well as mobile handlheld devices and will also be in charge of the maintenance of the system for three years.
