SAN DIEGO, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- California-based ImageWare Systems Inc. announced the launch of a multilingual biometric identity solution for defense and border security applications.

ImageWare is a biometric identity management solutions developer for law enforcement and government defense agencies. Officials announced the launch of the IWS Mediator, a suite of multilingual translation, collaborative and integrated multimodal biometric capabilities.

The real-time translations of more than 28 languages by the IWS Mediator platform enabled law enforcement the ability to "communicate with subjects in their own language while allowing for subject verification and identification through multimodal biometrics, including voice, face, iris, fingerprint, as well as the common access card and personal identity verification credentials," the release said.

"Leveraging the technology we acquired from Sol Logic, the Mediator suite of products fills a void for the intelligence, defense, public safety and border control markets we serve," Jim Miller, ImageWare chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement.

"Mediator also continues our radically different approach of using vendor-neutral, agnostic platforms and enables integration with the IWS Biometric Engine. We have further differentiated ImageWare's offerings by adding language translation, voice recognition and communications capabilities."
