    The SEEK Avenger delivers quick and reliable multimodal enrollment and watchlist identification in harsh environments. With its high degree of mobility and accuracy at all times, it facilitates biometric identity management wherever and whenever it is needed.

    Built for Outdoor Military Usage

    HID’s third generation SEEK Avenger is a mobile device with an ergonomic design that focuses specifically on military needs. The SEEK Avenger limits operating constraints in challenging locations thanks to its compact size and rugged, waterresistant case — all compliant with military standards. With two hand straps, it is easy to carry. Its touchscreen can be used with and without gloves.

    Highly Accurate Matching Results

    The SEEK Avenger quickly captures high-quality, reliable fingerprints and iris images. The comparison of more than one biometric modality with an existing risk database or onboard watchlist of up to 250,000 records gives reliable and more accurate results in a timely manner. The SEEK Avenger’s capabilities can be expanded by integrating an MRZ and RFID reader to read and verify Passports and other IDs or credentials.

    Reduced Risk During Operations

    The SEEK Avenger’s offline capabilities are a valuable asset in remote locations where connectivity is compromised and when instantaneous confirmation of an identity is required. The on-board watchlist can eliminate the need to transport unknown subjects in uncertain conditions for enrollment or identification. The threat potential of an individual can be assessed faster — creating a safer environment during operations. 

    Easy and Quick Iris Scanning

    The SEEK Avenger makes the capturing of iris images easier than ever, by incorporating two highresolution iris cameras in one device, meeting internationally recognized IAP 40 standards. The capturing of the iris is simplified as the camera doesn’t require the subject to use a binocular-style hood to achieve highquality images. Images of both eyes are taken at the same time even under direct sunlight, which saves valuable time during an operation
