Abstract:

IBG proposes design and development of a Portable Acquisition and Search System that substantially improves the state of the art in mobile biometric screening devices. Alternatives analysis will focus on the following: 1) Design alternatives that improve device usability and ergonomics for operators with limited training; 2)Improved hardware and software configurability and customizability, including thresholds, capture logic, overrides, and security settings, quality, and matching; 3) Standards-based, interoperable data collection and encoding techniques for biometric and biographic data collection, formatting, encoding, and transmission to FBI, DoD, DHS, and other USG databases; 4) Alternatives that improve image quality in suboptimal environments, such as when exposed to direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, or moisture; 5) Functionality beyond biometric data collection such as GPS, document scanning, and text-based searching; 6) Cost-effective and high-powered platforms (OS and processor) for multimodal mobile prototype device implementation; 7) Maximizing storage capacity and processing speed to provide real-time large-scale searching; 8) Production of lower-cost devices than currently possible in the market. This will include research into low-cost alternatives in biometric and non-biometric hardware, software, and fabrication. Commercial applications include border security and management, critical infrastructure protection, ID management systems, and global war on terror (GWOT) applications.
