Fast Capture Fingerprint/Palm Print Technology
Due Date: November 8, 2004.
NIJ is seeking proposals to improve and advance the current state of technology for the capturing of 10 rolled-equivalent fingerprints and palm prints. As crime prevention and national security remain a top priority, requirements for the use of friction ridge detail information for the identification of latent impressions and for background checks have increased. Yet, both the existing use and the potential for expanded use of these identifications are limited by available technology and infrastructure designed to capture the fingerprint friction ridge detail that enables searches of databases. New technology with much greater convenience, speed, reliability, affordability, and accuracy must be developed to meet these screening requirements.
