Abstract
The Portable Multimodal Biometric Device (PMBD) application developed by Aware Inc. will provide an integrated capability to employ individual-oriented identity information during the conduct of maritime and expeditionary operations. The PMBD application will rapidly establish identity information of unknown individuals encountered during the conduct of operations and improve force capacity to update, manage, and share trusted identity information. This application shall set the stage for the future of the tactical use of biometrics within the Department of Defense. During the Phase II effort Aware shall leverage its extensive biometric knowledge and industry leading software toolkits to provide an application that supports the enrollment of the highest quality biometric data, collect demographic and other supporting meta data in accordance with established standards, and provide output products that support the interchange of data according to established US Federal Government, Department of Defense, and law enforcement standards. The PMBD application shall be designed to operate fully on multiple hardware systems including those of the PMBD Phase II SBIR hardware awardees. Aware will also use its suite of commercially available tool kits to abstract biometric hardware used during the collection of data to leverage the U.S. Government’s current biometric hardware holdings as well as future acquisitions.
