Animetrics Partners with Raptor IDSep 18, 2012
Animetrics, a developer of advanced 3D facial recognition and identity management solutions for military, intelligence and law enforcement, has announced a strategic alliance with Raptor Identification Systems, Inc., makers of ruggedized Android 4.0-based mobile devices that combine biometric technologies with commercially current handheld smartphone and tablet technologies.
Raptor ID’s open platform concept allows for a simple, straightforward integration of Animetrics’ facial identity management software onto Raptor ID’s products. Animetrics provides next generation facial recognition and investigative face biometric tools to government and intelligence agencies around the world, utilizing Animetrics’ cloud-based FaceR Identity Management System (FIMS Cloud) and its suite of FaceR facial biometric identity and screening applications including FaceR MobileID and FaceR CredentialME.
For the first time, law enforcement officials, military personnel and intelligence officers will have access to Animetrics’ precise 3D facial recognition technology and the full capabilities of its FaceR Lights Out Face and Investigative Face biometric solutions running as a localized application on Raptor ID’s mobile devices. The FaceR Mobile ID application will also be able to run locally on the Android device without communications to the FIMS Cloud for local watchlist processing. This mobile technology will allow users to instantly access watchlists and run suspects’ facial biometrics against watchlists to search for any possible matches. The Animetrics-Raptor ID pairing will enable users to depend less on the technology at their home base, providing them more time in the field where they can actively serve and protect.
