Lightweight portable biometrics screening tools are needed to accurately and rapidly screen and manage the identities of individuals at the scene of an incident. Such tools are preferably not dependant on local infrastructure, which may be compromised, and should operate in both land (e.g. border security) and maritime (e.g. coast guard) environments. A device that is portable, lightweight, secure, accurate, inexpensive, easy-to-use, and has a long battery life is desired. AME proposes in phase I to conduct a trade-off analysis based on DHS requirements. The output will be a recommendation of a phase II device and that can be constructed and tested in the field. The technical risks of this development will be presented to allow DHS to gauge the likelihood of success of the effort.
