Will Graves: DoD to Assess 5 Biometric Tech Platforms

Will Graves, deputy project manager and chief engineer for biometrics at the Defense Department, has said that DoD will evaluate five different biometrics technologies this year, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.

The report noted the department seeks to explore the potential use of contactless, facial recognition, rapid DNA, video analytics and voice recognition platforms in a push to break a biometrics paradigm.

The U.S. military also looks to test facial recognition platforms, which are currently used at airports and buildings from short distances, as well as contactless biometrics systems that can potentially support on-the-move facial, fingerprint and iris recognition at forward operating bases.

Graves told the station that DoD also eyes video analytics technology built to sift through social media and dark web video data as well as develop a system to pick out voices in a crowd with voice recognition tools.

He added the department aims to build access information management systems that can support forward operating bases, materials and other military facilities.
