Here are a few examples of government projects that illustrate the wide variety of technologies and form factors employed by Thales to support the issuance of identity documents, passports, driving licenses, or health care cards.
Instant Issuance for Uruguay's national eID
In January 2015, Thales announced that it would deliver its eID card and issuance solution to the Ministry of Interior of Uruguay for the country's eID program.
Thales' instant issuance solution enables on-the-spot delivery of the highly secure document from more than 20 sites across the country.
A new driver's license for Quebec
In December 2014, "La Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec" (SAAQ) selected Thales to provide Quebec's new driver's license. The complete solution combines the Thales Secure Documents and the field-proven Issuance Solution, both of which meet the government's goal of reinforcing identity protection for Quebec's license holders.
Thales also provides the full implementation and maintenance of SAAQ's personalisation infrastructure. This decision enables SAAQ to offer Quebec drivers a seamless and speedy renewal service when obtaining their new driver's license.
Operated issuance services for the Swedish ePassport and eID
In January 2012, Sweden began issuing the second generation of its electronic passport and national eID. The same infrastructure and procedures are maintained for the National eID card as for the ePassport.
This unique infrastructure has made significant savings possible regarding equipment, processes, systems and staff training. Thales manages the end-to-end delivery process including the live enrollment solution in Sweden, production of all Swedish passports and IDs, and operated issuance services from its premises based in the Stockholm area.
Algerian eHealth solution: centralised issuance and back-up centre
The Algerian national health insurance authority (CNAS) selected Thales in July 2006 as the prime contractor to manage the entire project named CHIFA (healing), including the delivery of a complete Secure Issuance Solution configured for a high volume centralised personalisation environment and colour photo printing by dye sublimation technique.
As of 20 April 2016, 11,645,563 CHIFA cards had been issued. With Thales' support, CNAS also opened its back-up personalisation site in Laghouat, located 450km from Algiers.
Oman national eID and electronic passport
In 2013, Thales provided an end-to-end solution to the Sultanate for the new electronic passport. The turnkey solution for Oman encompasses Thales' ICAO compliant ePassport documents, and a full solution suite to enrol citizens, personalise and issue secure documents.
