Core Systems, the Belfast-based specialist in identity management technology, has set up an operation at Santa Rosa, California, operating under the name of Tusa.
The company also signed an initial £50,000 contract in Malaysia during the recent Invest Northern Ireland trade mission to South East Asia.
Core Systems has developed a range of technology solutions aimed at police and prison services worldwide. The Malaysia deal will see the company supply its integrated security management system to a major contractor in the country for use in new police stations. Core Systems will also supply their electronic control system into Malaysia through a related deal with Pickersgill Kaye, a UK custodial lock manufacturer.
The Santa Rosa operation will market InfoCenter, a multi purpose interactive kiosk designed specifically for the corrections environment. It provides an interface for inmates to access information directly and make service requests. Core Systems has linked up with Touch Sonic, a Californian technology business, which focuses on touch screen kiosk applications.
