Biometric identity management for the American Navy.

ImageWare Systems : 18 March, 2008  (Application Story)
Navy biometric group receives award using IWS biometric engine from Imageware system.
ImageWare Systems has announced that the Navy's Tactical Biometric Collection and Matching System (TBCMS) team recently received the Technology-to-Sea Excellence Award for technology excellence and superior performance. The TBCMS team utilised ImageWare's award-winning IWS Biometric Engine platform in the highly successful rapid development and field testing of a "first of its kind" capability for a mobile, multi-biometric identity management prototype solution. The award was given by the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Dahlgren.

As the prime contractor of the TBCMS project, ImageWare developed a mobile, multi-biometric identity management prototype solution based on its IWS Biometric Engine product and supporting devices that included multi-modal biometric capabilities (face, finger and iris) ruggedized for mission-critical objectives.

The IWS Biometric Engine is a multi-biometric identity management solution used by government and commercial enterprises to biometrically search and match populations of unlimited sizes for identity confirmation. These include searching and matching for Verification of an Identity (1:1), Exhaustive Search for Identification (1:N), Watchlist Management (X:N) and Existing Biometric Population Management and Enhancement (N:N). IWS Biometric Engine employs a multi-biometric enrollment, management and authentication platform that is technology agnostic, enabling users to utilise biometric devices (over 120) and algorithms (over 90) from virtually any vendor, as well as support the combination of the following biometric types, including: single fingerprint, Livescan fingerprint, 2D face, 3D face, iris, palm scan, finger vein, palm vein, hand geometry, palm, DNA, signature, voice, and retina. The IWS Biometric Engine is patent protected (number 7,298,873) by the US Patent and Trademark Office and employed throughout ImageWare's portfolio of biometric identity management solutions.
