A better biometric ID for the battlefield
The Defense Department’s Special Operations Command is looking for the next generation of biometric identification devices for use in the field, during mass enrollments of personnel at forward operating bases or for watch-list matching.
According to the recent request for information, the technologies should allow the rapid collection and on-board storage of full-spectrum biometrics – including fingerprint, iris, face and voice capture -- and the transmission of that data to receive a match or no-match response.
The battery-powered device should be easy to learn and use – even when wearing gloves – and weigh less than three pounds.
Selected production models of hardware and equipment will be demonstrated at a March 2018 Tactical Biometric Event where they will be evaluated as to their accuracy and suitability for operators in a realistic environment.
