Outline of Presentation Company Profile Optical Memory Card Technology Standards and Durability Testing Card Characteristics, Benefits, and Security Spotlights of LaserCard Applications Comparison with IC Smart Card Technology Optical Card Future View
Company Profile Drexler Technology Corporation created optical memory cards in 1981, and currently owns over 50 U.S patents related to optical data storage Drexler Technology’s manufacturing facility in Mountain View, California has an annual production capacity of up to 25 million cards LaserCard Systems Corporation was founded by Drexler Technology in 1991 to develop, market and sell optical card based systems Laser Memory Card S.r.l. of Italy is since 1994 the most representative partnership. L.C. Sistemia S.p.A. is the unique European manufacturer of the Optical Memory Card reader/writer and Optical Memory cards. Genesys Software Romania is the unique Partner for the Countries in East Europe: Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, Ucraina.
Key Benefits of Optical Cards Permanent - non-erasable media provides excellent data security against fraud and alterations High data capacity - 4.1Mbytes at low cost allows a wide range of applications Updateable - Card is writable, allowing updating without the need to always re-issue new cards
Additional Benefits Durable - Card structure is all polycarbonate, with excellent physical properties for long life Construction - Data is contained in the center core of the card, protecting it from surface damage and counterfeiting Multi-Tech - Cards can be manufactured with multiple technologies (i.e., barcode, magnetic strip, chip, OCR-B, serial #)
LaserCard ® Manufacturing Polycarbonate backing Optical WORM media and substrate (Not To Scale) Clear Polycarbonate Hard-Coat Custom Artwork Made of polycarbonate plastic –Polycarbonate is estimated to be 1,000 times more durable than PVC credit cards E-Beam cured (300KVolts) adhesive lamination technique Cards can be manufactured to include: –Custom artwork –Magnetic stripe –Signature panel –Laser-engraved serialization –IC chip
Security Features Biometrics - Laser recorded data files verified by photo, fingerprint or signature The Embedded Hologram - personalized, eye-readable image embedded in the optical media. Security Key - unique serial #’s in the pre-formatted area Preformatted ROM Data - Upon card insertion, software searches to match data in the pre-formatted ROM Micro Imaging - Physical security similar to currency printing offered from fine details in the optical media Optical Watermarks - are eye readable images that are formatted into the media, and protected under hardcoat
Anti-Counterfeiting Features Eye-Readable features require no equipment to validate authenticity: –Optical WORM media –Micro Optical Imaging –Optical Watermark –Subsurface Serialization –Custom Artwork Machine-Readable validation through multiple technologies: –Pre-formatted ROM data –Security Format –Personalization files –Laser-Engraved Barcode –OCR-B
Embedded Hologram™ The same files used to print a document are laser-encoded on the optical media as diffraction pattern image. Cannot be removed or erased and cannot be duplicated or simulated by photocopying, photography or scanning. Provides visual verification and authentication of printed information. Can interleave a copy of the digital file within the laser-encoded optical image for covert machine-readable verification.
Micro Optical Imaging Images are engineered into the optical WORM media format at a resolution over 12,000 dpi. Images cannot be removed or erased. Can incorporate digital data for added covert, machine-readable protection. Conventional secure printing and copying techniques cannot simulate the reflective optical media or micro optical images.

LaserCard® Applications Immigration & Travel Refugee Card Removal Cases Permanent Resident Card Foreign Student Card Employment Authorization Single/multiple-entry visa Passport Card Automated border entry National ID Citizenship Card Multiple Application Interdiction Airline check-in Immigration Control Foreign Missions
Permanent Resident Card Counterfeit Resistance High Data Capacity Low Cost High Performance High Data Durability Updateable Information Embedded Hologram™ In 1997, LaserCard® optical memory cards were selected by the United States Immunization and Naturalization Service (INS) for the current “Green Card”. LaserCard characteristics that influenced the INS’s decision include:
Other OMC Secure ID Programs - Canada Expedited border clearance CANPASS Pilot operated by Canadian Government since 1996 Canadian Airports Council to expand system across Canada in 2002 Permanent Resident Card Citizenship & Immigration to replace IMM1000 Program started year 2002 Annual requirement of 750,000 Passport Card Concept sponsored by Passport Office in ICAO forum Program start mid-2002 Annual estimate of 300, ,000
Other OMC Secure ID Programs - Canada Overview The Permanent Resident Card (also known as the Maple Leaf Card or the PR Card) is a new, wallet-sized, plastic card. Security features of the new PR Card will simplify the screening process of Permanent Residents when boarding a commercial carrier going to Canada. The card also increases Canada's border security and improves the integrity of Canada's immigration process. Beginning on June 28, 2002, PR Cards will be mailed to new Permanent Residents of Canada as part of the landing process. People who are already in Canada as Permanent Residents can apply for the new PR Card beginning October 15, Card Security The card will give holders reliable documentation of their permanent residence status. The high-tech security features will make the card extremely resistant to tampering or duplication. The requirement for Permanent Residents to produce this card when boarding a commercial carrier going to Canada will simplify the job of transportation officials in screening people for proper documentation.
Other OMC Secure ID Programs - Italy National ID Card Coexistent technology card –Optical Memory –IC chip –OCR-B data To be introduced in 2002 Annual requirement 10,000,000 Partial on-shore production
