Biometrics in help of army Operations: classes from the Battlefield examines and evaluates contemporary U.S. army stories in Iraq and Afghanistan within the context of using biometrics and comparable applied sciences. The e-book takes a entire examine how biometrics has been used to aid quite a few army operations and indicates ways in which its makes use of will be extra built. It fills a void in figuring out the best way to comprise biometrics by means of supplying a advisor to enhance and identify formal operational roles and methods while using the technology.
Written in an off-the-cuff variety that makes it obtainable to those who aren't inevitably operators or technicians of biometrics applied sciences, this booklet bridges an latest hole to higher train leaders in and out of the U.S. army at the far-reaching strength of biometrics in help of tactical operations. It argues that the space among these inside and out the army is the results of failure to record classes realized from conflict event, in addition to a scarcity of a mixed imaginative and prescient one of the Joint Forces to totally realize and make the most the features of biometrics for more desirable destiny luck. This ebook fills that gap.
Biometrics has nice strength as an efficient device if correctly constructed and applied. The ebook concludes with a glance on the way forward for rising purposes for the army but additionally considers a much broader diversity of deployment of biometrics outdoors the army, comparable to in governmental businesses, together with overseas international relations. Biometrics should be utilized to any operational quarter that calls for actual and quick identity of unknown participants with a purpose to aid its operations and shield body of workers and assets. Biometrics in aid of army Operations is a crucial starting element in an rising box for gaining realizing and higher mastery of biometrics.

At one point, the Biometrics Task Force at Bagram Airbase got word that the Marines were considering deploying a couple of hundred Pier iris collection devices, which had proved very useful in their population management efforts in Iraq’s western Al-Anbar Province. The problem was that while the Pier is an excellent and fairly small device that is simple to use, it only collects iris images. S. and Coalition personnel in Afghanistan, nor can they be matched against the vast bulk of biometric data collected by both the military and international law enforcement agencies, which are based almost totally upon fingerprints.
All systems possess the capability to immediately match against data held within the system itself, which could be data collected previously on the particular device, or it could be using data collected elsewhere and uploaded to the device. Such a “match on device” matching scheme limits that size of the database against which newly collected data can be matched (and thus lessens the chances for achieving a match); however, this may be sufficient for some mission applications, such as when controlling access to humanitarian aid or verifying the identities of small numbers of foreign or host nation workers who need recurring access to a military installation.
Matching fingerprints from a suspected IED (improvised explosive device) emplacer against latent fingerprints collected from an attack scene could take hours or longer due to the need for human interaction in the matching process, the often low quality of the forensically collected fingerprints, and the size of the database. † On subsequent biometric encounters (such as with a biometric door lock to a secure facility), the individual presents some means of nonbiometric identification, such as a smart card or pin number (or even just * † Another scenario is to collect latent fingerprints from an attack site, suspected terrorist safe-house, or from captured enemy equipment; or we could collect biometrics off an insurgent killed in action.
