Morpho gets FBI certification for fingerprint scanner

December 5, 2012 - 

Morpho announced today that its MorphoTop Model 100R, compact high-speed livescan fingerprint scanner has received certification from the FBI.

This new certification covers both tenprint rolled and identification flat fingerprint capture and meets the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) Image Quality Standard (IQS) Appendix F specification.

Based on proven and reliable biometric technology deployed worldwide for various major government projects such as the biometric passport, civil enrollments and in India’s Unique Identification national project , MorphoTop provides fingerprint capture in less than two seconds.

“As Morpho’s subsidiary in the U.S., MorphoTrak is extremely pleased with the excellent results certified by the FBI testing laboratory for fingerprint technology,” Daniel Vassy, President and CEO of MorphoTrak said. “Our customers demand these types of innovative, yet economic solutions that allow them to save costs while retaining superior accuracy.”

Managed by the Criminal Justice Information Services, IAFIS IQS Appendix F specification provides criteria ensuring that fingerprint image quality meets sufficient standards. To be certified, fingerprint scanner quality must meet designated parameters in reproducing the original fingerprint pattern for geometric accuracy, gray-level dynamic range and signal-to-noise ratio.

As reported previously in, Morpho’s fingerprint recognition algorithms have recently been ranked number-one in accuracy for image-only latent searches in the most recent National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) test.
