Mobile Biometrics

Appears in the issue.

Sagem Morpho Inc. of Tacoma, Washington, has introduced its third generation Morpho RapID 1100 hand-held biometric device, which integrates a digital camera to support facial recognition, a larger screen, a keyboard, and enhanced wireless communication in a smaller unit. It allows police officers and border agents in the field to identify suspects based on fingerprints and facial-recognition information. Based on the Psion Teklogix iKon, a PDA that is resistant to dust and rain, it includes wireless communication options such as WiFi, cellular, and BlueTooth with GPS localization. A forensic-quality, ruggedized scanner captures digital images of a suspect’s fingerprints, which are instantly compared to an on-board watch list of up to 180,000 records or transmitted wirelessly for comparison with a centralized database. Mug shots can also be captured for facial recognition.
