CYBER WARS
Third Phase of FBI's Next Gen ID System Begins
by Staff Writers
Rockville MD (SPX) Apr 13, 2011


-

The Lockheed Martin-led Next Generation Identification (NGI) team is beginning to fully develop and deploy a capability that will enhance the FBI's latent fingerprint matching accuracy and introduce palm print matching to the system. Development efforts began after a successful Critical Design Review (CDR) for the system's Increment 3.

The milestone came just weeks after the FBI declared Initial Operating Capability on NGI's Increment 1 fingerprint matching capability.

"The FBI's Next Generation Identification (NGI) system is now operational and providing law enforcement officials with more accurate fingerprint identification services than ever before," said June Shrewsbury, vice president of Lockheed Martin's Citizen Protection Solutions division.

"We're excited to keep up the momentum and begin implementing the system's latent fingerprint and palm print matching capabilities."

The latent and palm print matching algorithms for the NGI system will be provided by Alexandria, Va.-based MorphoTrak. MorphoTrak also provided the system's fingerprint matching algorithms.

NGI's Increment 2: Repository for Individuals of Special Concern (RISC), is also progressing according to schedule.

Now in the final stages of development, this phase will provide law enforcement users more speed and flexibility in how they search the FBI's RISC fingerprint database, which includes Wanted Persons, Known or Appropriately Suspected Terrorists, Sex Offenders Registry subjects, and other persons of special interest.

NGI is providing an incremental replacement of the FBI's current Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS).

The Lockheed Martin-led NGI team includes Accenture, BAE Systems Information Technology Inc., Global Science and Technology (GST), and Innovative Management and Technology Services (IMTS).
