BEDFORD, Mass., July 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aware, Inc. (Nasdaq: AWRE), a global provider of imaging and biometrics software, today announced that it has supplied its Biometric Services Platform (BioSP™) software platform to a large European police agency analogous to the U.S. FBI. BioSP is an off-the-shelf, web services-based (SOA) biometric application server software product being used by the police agency for several centralized biometric applications. One workflow application is used to screen and convert incoming digital fingerprint records from external sources such as INTERPOL and the FBI into their domestic format. Fingerprint records that cannot be completely converted automatically are stored, and an Aware software application is used to manually edit them.
The same BioSP platform also enables over 200 remote state police facilities with highly secure, searchable access to fingerprint image records stored in the system. BioSP securely distributes Aware's browser-based fingerprint search-and-view application to authorized investigators, who then use it to locate criminal fingerprint image records in the system. Advanced viewing tools are used to analyze the fingerprint images in the records, providing visual comparison to other fingerprint images. BioSP also generates PDF documents containing the fingerprint images of the record, which investigators can print locally in a familiar layout.
BioSP is a highly modular, secure, service-oriented biometric application server product used by Aware customers globally to perform a wide variety of biometric tasks on a server. It offers a programmable workflow engine and several independent, off-the-shelf software modules used for tasks such as image storage, transaction routing and management, fingerprint and facial image processing and quality checking, standards-compliant data formatting, biometric matching, and enrollment data quality reporting. BioSP includes a platform for configuration, distribution, and management of a client-based biometric enrollment application. BioSP is integrated with several third-party matchers for multimodal biometric search capability, as well as market-leading identity management and card management systems.
