Mobile Biometrics Discussed at FBI NAA Conference

FBI National Academy AssociatesST. LOUIS, MO. — Steve Thies, Integrated Biometrics CEO, recently attended the FBI National Academy Associates, Inc. (FBI NAA) conference in St. Louis on July 25th. During the event, Thies attended a presentation of the InCadence Ares mobile biometric solution given by Verizon’s Steven Miller.

Miller discussed a mobile solution which uses a combination of a Samsung smartphone or tablet, the Verizon network, InCadence software, and the Watson Mini FBI Appendix F Certified FAP 45 two-finger roll scanner from Integrated Biometrics. The solution, as Miller pointed out, is one that is a truly mobile and cost-effective fingerprint enrollment and verification system.

Thies and Miller answered questions from the presenters and participated in some Q&A after the presentation including the pricing and availability of the Watson-Mini, and the application of the technology in both enrollment and verification scenarios.
