Aware launches flexible automated biometric identification system for civil ID and law enforcement

Aware has brought its automated biometric identification system (ABIS) for large-scale identification and deduplication to provide comprehensive biometric analysis and processing, including searches of latent prints.

Key features of AwareABIS include open integration for making use of existing systems, customer data ownership of non-proprietary biometric data, and comprehensive reporting tools. The software also offers an examiner-focused user interface, easy installation, and the ability to accommodate new biometrics without replacing any software.

The ABIS also includes workstation applications with rich analytics and report generation features for advanced face and fingerprint biometric forensics. In civil ID applications, Aware enables powerful search capabilities through easy-to-use APIs, according to the announcement.

AwareABIS is designed to serve use cases for between 1 and 30 million people, and supports fingerprint, face, and iris biometric modalities, with a modular architecture which the company says helps security teams configure and optimize the system for use cases in civil or criminal ID.

“Law enforcement and civil agencies have long been looking for an alternative ABIS product,” states Robert Mungovan, chief commercial officer at Aware. “For too long they have been locked into monolithic ABIS systems requiring them to replace their existing systems and infrastructure, pass off control of their data to their ABIS provider, and restrict their ability to expand in the future. With AwareABIS, these agencies can now select a biometric identification system that puts them back in control.”

The company announced the development of its ABIS solution in 2019 to provide flexibility to identity system operators.

The fingerprint recognition algorithm in AwareABIS recently ranked atop U.S. entrants in the NIST MINEX III evaluation.
