Abstract
To address the Army need for remote biometrics capture, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new High-Resolution Standoff Face Capture (HISFAC) system for noncooperative moving subjects. It is based on our innovative ultrasuperpixel array and instantaneous zoom with wide field-of-view. Its innovations enable users to capture face images of noncooperative fast-moving personnel on a superpixel array at unprecedented, telescopic, 4.3 mm (H) and 1.6 mm (V) resolution at 200 m standoff over a 30 degree FOV at a single capture, without optical or mechanical zooming. HISFAC captures biometrics instantaneously, irrespective of subjects"activities or orientation. The optics can capture moving subjects (20 km/h) without motion blur, and the software detects faces and extracts/converts them to any Electronic Biometric Transmission Specification for database comparison, not only performing automated embedded recognition against a watch list, but also reconstructing 3D facial models from data for comparison against large databases. The package is 6 in. (dia) x 8 in. (long), and<5 lb. In Phase I POC will demonstrate the feasibility of HISFAC by designing and testing functional HISFAC components in a laboratory testbed. In Phase II we plan to design, fabricate, and test a fully functional prototype in a realistic environment
