Abstract
We propose to develop a methodology and test and evaluation framework for optimizing the remote capture of multimodal biometrics for automated screening and identification to the practical extent possible while the individuals are on the move, walking through an automated gate or corridor at the airport or a walkway across the border. In Phase one we will establish a set of multimodal biometrics that, when applied, can establish the identity of an individual from remote biometrics measurements or touch-less capture devices. The Need: The key need is less intrusive screening with improved identification reliability or for DHS, better facilitation of travel and commerce while maintaining the total border security screening. Anticipated Benefits and Commercial Applications: The proposed framework will provide the methodology and best practice techniques to capture and integrate multimodal biometrics for various identity screening applications. These collective business rules will be the foundation for a new middleware product to optimally deploy multimodal biometrics. The development and testing of the new multimodal middleware application with remote sensing will be completed in Phase II. The proposed middleware product will address this market need and future market growth and will be the basis for our planned Phase III private funding and commercial offering success.
