IDVS builds upon Rockwell Collins industry-leading vision technologies for aerospace and defense, including the F-35 Lightning II helmet and civil aircraft head-up displays.
The IDVS is designed with an open architecture to provide an easy upgrade path for future technologies that enhance situational awareness.
During the enrollment process, RMV operators will use Digimarc IDVS to scan, authenticate, and archive documents presented by applicants for driver licenses.

The Digimarc IDVS system marks a new era in ID security.
The Digimarc IDVS system is initially targeted to serve DMVs and other issuers of government IDs to aid them in meeting American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) Security Framework identification guidelines and support the authentication and archiving requirements of the REAL ID Act provisions of Public Law No: 109-13, an emergency supplemental appropriations bill signed into law on May 11.
Designed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of identification inspection at the DMV, the Digimarc IDVS offering provides authentication results in an easy-to-read format for operators, supervisors and inspectors.
The modular Digimarc IDVS software is the first to be designed for integration with multiple authentication databases and hardware.
The integration of the Digimarc IDVS system along with leading reader devices, scanners and software provide DMV personnel, law enforcement officials, and system integrators a new and more powerful method to positively authenticate driver licenses and identity documents across a variety of inspection environments -- from police cruisers to transportation access points to DMV offices to forensic labs," said J.
