(from Planet Biometrics – 8/5/15)
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI’s) Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) is seeking vendors for the development of a mobile application that can capture biometrics on android-based devices. The app should be able to collect fingerprints and facial photographs for submission and receipt of a response, via an android-based application from any domestic location with cellular service, the FBI writes in contract documents released this week.
The RFQ is a follow up to the Request for Information (RFI) that was released in the summer of 2014 which described the mobile biometric collection effort by the FBI to offer a Mobile Biometric Application (MBA) that will operate on the FBI Android based phone and tablet, currently the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 4.
