Forensic-Level Reader authenticates taggants through windows.

January 21, 2011

Fostering enforcement of motor vehicle safety laws and regulations, CarSure can read taggants (optical codes) and authenticate documents through car windows. Invisible taggants are integrated into documents during manufacturing process and thereafter can only be detected by CarSure reader. Taggants can be incorporated into any material, including plastics commonly used in stickers affixed to car windows, and are active for entire life of document. Read More
