IDEMIA introduces new Automated Fingerprint Identification System
IDEMIA has launched a new Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) specially tailored for latent print examiners. IDEMIA Case AFIS reduces erroneous examination decisions and provides better management of expert resources and is backed by the latent matching capabilities supplied for over 160 national, state and local law enforcement agencies including the FBI’s NGI system.
According to a company statement, IDEMIA Case AFIS is a standalone system with powerful matching algorithms, independently tested for accuracy, speed and scalability. The application works on a laptop and helps latent experts solve complex and difficult cases faster, by enabling examiners to search friction ridge evidence collected from crime scenes against known prints on a case by case basis.
“IDEMIA’s latent print examination discipline has resulted in our latest compact and convenient offering, IDEMIA Case AFIS,” said Donnie Scott, Senior Vice President, Public Security for North America at IDEMIA. “The power of our market leading MBIS (Multi Biometric Identification System) coupled with our advanced latent examination tools packaged in a portable form provide latent examiners with the best in crime-solving solutions.”
The Augmented Identity firm will be demonstrating Case AFIS at the 103rd Annual IAI International Forensic Educational Conference later this month.
