Cognitec Systems, a supplier of face recognition technology and systems, is pleased to announce its selection by SecurLinx as the face recognition provider for AmberVision, a new service that augments existing AMBER Alert systems nationwide. Cognitec's software is being deployed within AmberVision. The service enables law enforcement to more quickly identify missing children by electronically distributing photographs, developing 2D and 3D images of victims, and verifying the identities of missing children using face recognition software.
Specifically, Cognitec's software is used to assist law enforcement in the identification of a child suspected to be the subject of a missing persons alert. From a photograph taken in the field, Cognitec's face recognition software is used to generate a real-time alert delivered to police on their hand-held devices. This alert provides a biometric comparison of the field image with a photograph of the missing child. The system works in a matter of moments and in situations where time is a valuable commodity. More than 800,000 children are reported missing every year in America. That is a missing child every 40 seconds.

"We are extremely pleased that Cognitec's face recognition software is being used in AmberVision," commented Alfredo Herrera, CEO of Cognitec Systems. "Security and safety are key uses of our software, and we cannot think of a higher purpose than helping in cases of child abduction."
