Abstract:

Historically, portable biometric collection systems have been designed for fixed Law Enforcement office applications. Their limitations stem from the fact that they were designed for specific hardware collection sensors optimized for a specific application. To a large extent the software is proprietary to a single vendor's sensor suite and not designed to accept international character sets. Current products that the Department of Defense is using for mobile biometrics consist of poorly repackaged office systems. Azimuth proposes to research all available biometric technologies that could possibly be designated and repackaged into a lightweight, rugged, portable and "user-friendly" biometric collection toolset. Our proposed design will encompass the requirements necessary for the screening and processing of individuals encountered within designated military operational environments. Software applications will comply with Biometric Application Programming Interfaces (BioAPI) international standards for the Operating System (OS) and Biometric Service Provider (BSP) interfaces, utilizing international character sets and external interface requirements of national and international biometric data sets. Our proposed application will be standards based and therefore capable of utilizing many vendor sensor products, considering operational requirements such as weight, size, power and cost.
