The Ares Mobile Biometric Solution developed by InCadence Strategic Solutions was one of five government IT solutions recognized at the ACT-IAC Igniting Innovation Showcase and Award event in Washington, D.C. earlier this week.
The Ares Mobile Biometric Solution is a biometric collection and submission platform which has been designed to be capable of rapidly collecting biometrics, photographs, biographical data, packing and validating transactions and communicating with records databases on Android-based tablets or smartphones. ARES uses a secure SMTP to send transactions and a secure POP to receive responses and according to a company statement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is systematically deploying the software.
“Ares is a game changing technology for the law Eenforcement community at all levels,” said Anthony Iasso, President of InCadence. “Positive identification, knowing who you are dealing with, is vital for the safety of our law enforcement officers and for the general safety of the public. We are proud to put this important new capability into the hands of the men and women who protect and serve our nation.”

According to a report by GCN, “the awards drew 147 nominations, and the judges chose 40 finalists from among IT solutions developed by government agencies, private industry and government-industry partnerships. Those 40 projects were demonstrated at the event where attendees used social media voting to choose the Igniting Innovation winner.”
