Research Institution

For the past four years, Lumidigm has focused development efforts on multispectral skin analysis and multispectral fingerprint imaging in an effort to build robust, convenient, and reliable biometric sensors. This work has been funded by private investors, government intelligence agencies (CIA & NSA), the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense (currently a Fast-Track Phase II through the United States Air Force focused on "live-ness" detection), as well as numerous corporate partners. These efforts have culminated in a fingerprint sensor, with Lumidigm's anti-spoofing and image enhancement engine inside, that will be released into the AFIS-quality market by a corporate partner during the 4th quarter, 2005. Based upon this foundation, Lumidigm is proposing to produce a feasible design for a soldier-borne continuous biometric authentication system. This design would include a clear prototype development approach to incorporating a power supply, a versatile wireless (or acceptable alternative) communication platform, and a continuous biometric monitoring sensor with "live-ness" detection capability into a small, robust, ergonomic, field-wearable package. For economic practicality, the units will be built from a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) system utilizing Lumidigm's proven multispectral imaging platform.
