Biometrics

A Core Strength

For more than a decade, we have evaluated, deployed, improved, and fused biometric systems for the military, intelligence agencies, and law enforcement organizations. Every day, Integral biometric solutions are helping:

  • Investigate a crime
  • Identify an insurgent or a terrorist
  • Authenticate a passport
  • Verify a visa
  • Validate a driver’s license

Delivering the Full Range of Multimodal Biometric Solutions  

Integral biometric services and support include:

  • Developing a concept of operations to lab test a biometric algorithm before deployment
  • Developing, improving, and fusing recognition algorithms for MorphoTrust, Crossmatch, and other leading biometric systems
  • Fusing biometric modes for comparison and combination of signatures from a subject’s fingerprints, irises, palms, and face―even from his or her DNA―enabling enrollment of credentials, verification of IDs, spoof-proofing identities, and checking visitors against watchlists
  • Implementing biometric-enabled applications for clients including the Transportation Security Administration, for identity proofing, credential enrollment, and verification
  • Supporting counterintelligence and cyber intelligence using biometric and forensic technologies
  • Developing policies in accordance with DoD Instruction O-3300.04, Defense Biometric Enabled Intelligence (BEI) and Forensic Enabled Intelligence (FEI), and Policy O-3300.bb, Identity Intelligence (I2) (DoD Manual 3300.BB-M for Defense Biometrics, Forensics, BEI, and FEI Security Classification Guidance)
  • Conducting BEI, FEI, and I2 analysis of all-source intelligence, human intelligence, and counterintelligence, and conducting targeting; writing Biometric Intelligence Assessment Reports and providing instruction in writing them; delivering BEI training
  • Empowering teams to routinely share information, collaborate, and report suspicious incidents, patterns, and trends

Our Expertise at Work

  • In research, development, test, and evaluation projects funded by the DHS Science and Technology Directorate, DoD’s Technical Support Working Group, and the Defense Forensics & Biometrics Agency, we have improved biometrics algorithms so that they match IDs more accurately in the real world – with fewer misses and false matches.
  • We have helped the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Intelligence) formulate the DoD Policy on Biometric-Enabled Intelligence and Forensic Enabled Intelligence. We have also supported the DoD I2 initiative.
  • We have led comprehensive intelligence analysis via BEI, FEI, and I2 techniques using defined methodologies, analytical tools, databases, and watchlists for the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command’s National Ground Intelligence Center, the Federal Air Marshal Service, and the Defense Intelligence Agency.
  • Our Mobile Training Team has trained DoD, DHS, the Department of Justice, NATO, and international allies to master the tools and methodologies in performing BEI, FEI, and OSINT analysis.
