BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aware, Inc. (Nasdaq: AWRE), a global provider of biometrics and imaging software, today announced the development of the Next-Generation Universal Automated Booking Station, or "Universal ABS" for use by agencies of the U.S. Department of Justice. Universal ABS is a biometric enrollment application built upon Aware's new BioComponents™ product family; a flexible, modular, COTS software framework that is far more easily configured and maintained than a "hardcoded" application that would otherwise require different source code for each agency's implementation. BioComponents provide a common code base that supports easy configuration of different Universal ABS implementations for each agency within the Department of Justice, fulfilling their specific requirements while simplifying ongoing maintenance and support of the applications.
"Our new BioComponents framework was designed to achieve ease of configuration without sacrificing ease of maintenance; requirements that are common among our customers," commented Rob Mungovan, Vice President at Aware. "BioComponents support either a Windows or browser-based approach, and avoid a traditionally brittle workstation design that hardcodes workflow, functionality, and peripherals into the application."
Each of the currently available components that comprise the BioComponents product are independent, self-contained software modules that provide their own user interface, biometric autocapture functionality, image processing and analysis, and peripheral capture device abstraction. They can be quickly assembled and configured to fulfill custom workflow and functionality requirements. Aware will participate on a panel that will present the Universal ABS at the Biometric 2011 Exhibition and Conference, taking place in London October 18-20.
About BioComponentsBioComponents is Aware's newest biometric user interface software application framework. It is API-based and designed to enable extremely fast implementation of a robust, advanced biometric enrollment application, yet also enable a high degree of configurability in terms of functionality and workflow. It is comprised of modular, independent, self-contained software components that can operate either independently or in concert, with each performing a specific biometric task. Each biometric capture Component has its own configurable user interface, and performs all tasks and workflows required for capture, hardware abstraction, and quality assurance.
