The US Department of Defense wants input on new biometric solutions that can be used in military operations.The DoD's Special Operations Command has released an RFI seeking input on a tactical device capable of collecting face, fingerprint and iris data.Applications include mass enrollments of personnel at forward operating bases or for watch-list matching.According to the recent request for information, the technologies should allow the rapid collection and on-board storage of full-spectrum biometrics and the transmission of that data to receive a match or no-match response.The battery-powered device should be easy to learn and use – even when wearing gloves – and weigh less than three pounds.Selected production models of hardware and equipment will be demonstrated at a March 2018 Tactical Biometric Event where they will be evaluated as to their accuracy and suitability for operators in a realistic environment.
