Secure Planet releases real-time facial recognition solution
Secure Planet recently announced the release of TacID Guard Dog, a real time on-the-move biometric capture, screening and alerting solution for border control, defense, access control and perimeter security environments. Secure Planet is an Ideal Innovations, Inc. (I3) affiliated company.
According to the announcement, Guard Dog can be deployed on a variety of operating system platforms, requires no special or proprietary hardware, and embeds facial recognition algorithms from Rank One Computing (ROC). ROC’s algorithms are specifically designed to handle unconstrained face detection.
“We’re very excited about government, industry and public volunteer collaboration to evaluate new and advanced technology like Guard Dog,” said Secure Planet CEO Bob Kocher.
Biometrics are increasingly playing “a critical tool for verifying travelers really are who they say they are,” State Department Coordinator for Counterterrorism, Ambassador Nathan Sales told attendees at the recent International Conference on Mobilizing Law Enforcement Efforts to Defeat ISIS.
