ImageWare Systems Inc., the San Diego-maker of identity management software, was selected to implement a multimodal biometric driver license system for the state of Baja California, Mexico, the company announced.

For ImageWare, the deal is valued at more than $1 million. The company will receive one-time license fees for its software upon delivery and ongoing payments for its professional services and maintenance as delivered, according to ImageWare.

The contract was awarded by the Funciones Ocupacionales Insha, S.A. de C.V., the prime contractor on the project.

The company’s software is expected to help generate more than 1 million licenses over the next three years, ImageWare said.

“As security needs become more complex and demanding, our customers increasingly appreciate the unique power and flexibility of our patented cloud-based, multimodal biometric solutions,” said Jim Miller, ImageWare’s chairman and CEO.
