CAMPBELL, Calif.--()--AOptix (, a technology innovation company that leverages optics to transform identity verification and wireless communications, today announced the general availability of the AOptix Stratus™ Client Software Development Kit (SDK) for iOS.

AOptix Stratus is the first comprehensive mobile identity solution “Made for iPhone” delivering iris, fingerprint, voice and face recognition in one integrated solution. The powerful new Client SDK for iOS unlocks the full potential of the AOptix Stratus platform’s open architecture, enabling an ecosystem of Smart Mobile Identity products and apps. With the SDK, systems integrators and value-added reseller partners are able to rapidly develop applications meeting the specific requirements of their customers in a broad range of vertical markets, including:

  • Law enforcement and public safety
  • Defense and homeland security
  • Humanitarian aid and disaster relief
  • Health care
  • National and civil ID programs

“The response to the launch of Stratus has been extremely positive and we’re already seeing strong traction in the market,” said Chuck Yort, Vice President and General Manager of Identity Solutions at AOptix. “We gave several partners early access to the SDK and they have already developed some truly innovative applications on top of the AOptix Stratus platform. With this comprehensive and robust SDK now broadly available, developers and systems integrators can jumpstart their application development to meet their customers’ specific needs and capitalize on the surging global demand for accurate Smart Mobile Identity.”

CACI International Inc, a leading information solutions and services provider, is using the AOptix SDK to develop custom solutions, based on AOptix Stratus, for the U.S. Department of Defense. “Smart Mobile Identity benefits our customers by leveraging the security of Apple's iOS mobile devices in providing our soldiers with biometric identification, identity management and mobile based enterprise data analytics that were previously not possible. The weight savings of this capability, coupled with the convergence of secure technologies available to the iPhone, have proven to be popular with customers. AOptix’s SDK and open platform approach enable us to rapidly integrate input from the DoD and develop a product that is ready for full-scale deployment,” said Ken Asbury, President and Chief Executive Officer of CACI.

According to the President Director at PT. Biomorf Lone Indonesia, Kevin Johnson, “Having helped the Indonesian Government collect and manage over 140 million iris, fingerprint, and face biometric records to facilitate social services, commercial transactions, and public safety, PT. Biomorf Lone has been keenly interested in developing smartphone-based applications to support these needs. We have evaluated the Stratus SDK for iOS against our Biomorf Identity Grid. Because it is so simple to develop with, while delivering high quality, standards-compliant biometric records, we see it as an ideal way for us to bridge biometric identity and smartphone-centric mobility.”

The AOptix Stratus family includes AOptix Stratus MX, AOptix Stratus App for iOS and AOptix Stratus SDK. AOptix Stratus MX is a sleek, rugged hardware peripheral that houses an iPhone 4 / 4S and enables iris, fingerprint, face, and voice biometric verification capabilities.

The AOptix Stratus Client SDK for iOS combines all of the tools necessary for developers to rapidly integrate the biometric capabilities of the AOptix Stratus product family into custom software solutions that run on Apple iOS devices. The SDK includes:

The Basic Capture Package, which includes all of the elements to integrate iris, face, fingerprint, voice, and context image capture into custom iOS applications.

The Communications Package, which streamlines the secure exchange of data with industry standard and custom-built backend biometric systems.

The People Database Package, which manages the secure storage of collected biometric and biographic data on the iOS device.

Sample Applications, which give developers compile-able source code samples of the views and methods included in the package.
