Research Institution
Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance the development in Phase II of the new Combined Multi-Biometric Service (CMBIOS) technology. CMBIOS addresses the U.S. Army need for a secure Identity Management of Biometric Data (IMBD) across the Global Information Grid (GIG) using a service-oriented architecture framework. In Phase I POC demonstrated CMBIOS feasibility through design, assembly, and testing of a TRL-4 prototype. Overall system architecture, system prototype design, and system design specification for Phase II were developed; tradeoff studies were conducted. The Phase I proof-of-concept prototype demonstrated the capability of CMBIOS to provide real-time biometric information sharing across counterterrorism agencies, across the GIG, and over low-bandwidth communication links. CMBIOS prototype provides new capabilities such as user notification, biometric data fusion, use of data mining, and biometric information protection via strong user authentication and role-based access control. In Phase II, POC will finalize development of enterprise-scale system design (TRL-6) suitable for transition to DoD Project Management Office and/or the Biometric Identity Management Agency in Phase III. CMBIOS Phase II prototype will integrate Public Key Infrastructure and be field tested in relevant environment to provide real-time IMBD across the GIG from the tactical to the strategic level.
