SuperCom (Nasdaq: SPCB), a global provider of secure solutions for the e-Government, Public Safety, HealthCare, and Finance sectors today announced that it has won an 8-year contract for the development, delivery and maintenance of a new central personalization system for electronic passports and polycarbonate national electronic ID cards, for Iceland.  SuperCom was awarded the contract following an international open tender during which 12 companies submitted proposals.

The new Icelandic ePassports personalization system will leverage SuperCom’s most advanced ePassport and eID technology providing improved secure documents issuance and delivery capabilities,” commented Mr. Arie Trabelsi, SuperCom’s President and CEO.

The proposed system, based on SuperCom’s cyber secure Magna™ National Population Registry platform, will personalize those cards and e-passport booklets, graphically and electronically, and will protect those documents against forgery in compliance with the highest international standards.  

SuperCom’s system will interface directly with the customer’s various environmental IT and legacy systems and SuperCom will also maintain and support the new system throughout the duration of the contract.

SuperCom delivered the current ePassport and eID card personalization system to Register Iceland in the 2006/2007 calendar year. SuperCom’s original system is running perfectly and has been maintained flawlessly.

“We are especially pleased to have won this contract, which we believe reflects Register Iceland’s confidence in our capabilities to continue issuing Iceland’s EU and ICAO compliant, highly secure, ePassports and National eID cards.

“This award is in addition to other awards and successful implementations in SuperCom’s eID division for other governments’ driver and vehicle license, ePassport, visa and border control systems,” Mr. Trabelsi concluded.
