FBI next generation identification program to use MorphoTrak fingerprint biometrics

MorphoTrak : 09 September, 2009  (Application Story)
Lockheed Martin awards contract to MorphoTrak for supplying biometric fingerprint identification technology in support of the next generation identification program under development by the FBI
MorphoTrak has been awarded a contract by Lockheed Martin to provide fingerprint identification technology for the FBI's Next Generation Identification (NGI) system.

Daniel Vassy, CEO of MorphoTrak, stated: "We are very pleased to be a part of the team, led by Lockheed Martin, which will work with the FBI in upgrading their identification services. This fresh initiative will significantly expand the capabilities of the FBI's identification system, delivering increased speed, accuracy and capacity. It will also enhance our position as the leading U.S. provider of Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS), supplying law enforcement and civil identification systems to 28 states, numerous local government agencies and several other Federal agencies."

MorphoTrak's technology was chosen based on a competitive trade study process that rigorously and objectively evaluated vendors' solutions to select the right biometric technology at the best value. MorphoTrak's technical solution is based on its own powerful matching algorithms and open architecture, which enables a fusion with the algorithms of its U.S. partner BIO-key International.


This phase of the NGI project involves the core biometric processing and matching capability using 10 fingerprints - the basis for most law enforcement and other systems requiring the highest accuracy. Law enforcement agencies throughout the U.S. and civil agencies doing background checks will use the NGI system.
