Ultra-Scan Corp. (Amherst, NY) has received a Small Business Technology Transfer Research Phase II contract from the Army Research Laboratory to develop a high confidence multi-modal biometric system for accurate personnel identification.
Ultra-Scan, leading a team that includes Viisage [Billerica, MA], Panasonic [Secaucus, NJ], and the University of Buffalo's Center for Unified Biometrics and Sensors, will blend Viisage's FaceTOOLS SDK, and its own Livescan Ultrasonic Identification System (LUIS) to create an automatic multi-modal biometric identification system. LUIS uses high-frequency sound waves to see through dirt, newsprint, hand lotions and other common finger contaminants for improved accuracy.
In Phase I, Ultra-Scan delivered technology that combined fingerprint, face recognition, iris recognition and signature analysis to increase accuracy versus the use of any of the technologies used individually. Panasonic is supplying Iris recognition technology and the university center signature analysis.
