The Defense Department's Biometrics Management Office and Biometrics Fusion Center today unveiled a new Web site for biometrics information.
The site, www.biometrics.dod.mil
, offers biometric technology tutorials, test and evaluation updates, policy foundation background, educational program announcements and information on government and industry partnerships, according to a Defense official.
'This comprehensive site offers a broad look into these latest developments, and also provides a sounding board for visitors to share their interests in biometrics so that we may better understand the requirements of our DOD community,' John Woodward, director of the BMO, said in a statement.
The site gives DOD users and vendors information on various BMO and BFC initiatives, including test and evaluation, biometric standard development and the Biometrics/Common Access Card program. Also, Defense users can access a restricted section of the site to get up-to-date information about biometric product assessments.
