Abstract
Aculight, teamed with Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LMMFC), will deliver a system for remote capture of biometrics for screening processes in the Phase II of this proposed work. This system will have a range in excess of 100 meters, if needed, and supply facial depth resolution of < 2 mm. This aggressive goal is enabled by the DOD investment in 3D LIDAR at LMMFC and in eye-safe fiber laser sources at Aculight. The combination of these two technologies will provide the acquisition characteristics required by the DHS and will operate night or day and in adverse weather conditions. The 3D output data will be compatible with commercial software for facial recognition and Lockheed Martins WISDOMTM system. In Phase I, Aculight will modify its PerseusTM eyesafe fiber laser product to meet DHS needs and LM will design the system changes to interface with the Aculight source and to meet DHS goals.
