I3 supports the development and integration of next generation biometric systems for the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC). We provide identity management system support, Automated Biometric Identification Systems (ABIS) support, systems integration and operation, access control systems, biometric device testing, and evaluation and pilot study support. I3 currently manages several complex, integrated systems for various DoD and IC customers.
Long-Distance Facial Recognition: I3 offers a long-distance facial recognition capability that can leverage facial images captured via still imagery as well as streaming video. We have demonstrated man-portable facial recognition at distances in excess of 400m away from the target(s).
Medium Range Facial Recognition: Our medium-range facial recognition capability allows us to process still camera and streaming video imagery. Distances range up to a few hundred meters from the target(s).
Iris Recognition: I3 has deployed systems for standoff iris recognition out to 5m, and designed a system to operate at 40m.
Heart: I3 designed, developed and demonstrated a man-portable system for heart biometrics using a standoff system to measure pulse response at distances up to 200m.
Voice: I3 designed and developed a man-portable system for voice biometrics to collect audio recordings of the subject’s voice at distances up to 200m.
ABIS Development & Support
I3 provides end-to-end biometric software development, database administration, information assurance, and test & evaluation, as well as deployment support for real world solutions in the United States (U.S.) and overseas. Our expertise also includes enterprise Operations & Maintenance (O&M) and training support.
I3 provides operational support to the DoD, Interagency, and International partners submitting to the DoD ABIS by operating a 24x7x365 Watch Desk, providing metrics reports and providing subject matter expertise to end users of the DoD ABIS. Our Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) provide advice and guidance to DoD ABIS users as they develop their biometric programs to ensure successful interoperability through the major U.S. Government biometric repositories. Additionally, we support the DoD’s Biometrics Collection Capability (BC2), where we provide operation and maintenance support for two large-scale biometric collection systems along with program management, software engineering, logistics, field service engineering, help desk, cyber security, cloud engineering and surge support. I3 also supports overseas operations and maintenance for National-level biometrics systems in the middle-East and Africa.
I3 is an industry leader for multi-modal, biometric-based software development. Our development expertise spans a wide range of offerings, from quick-turnaround solutions that meet emerging mission needs, to complex projects requiring extensive integration. We employ a Top Secret/SCI cleared, in-house software engineering team with experience building software that ranges the full spectrum of project sizes and complexity, from large enterprise software and mobile applications, to small tools used to integrate project components. Our team developed a Defense Biometric Software Development Kit (SDK) to provide a Government-Off-the-Shelf (GOTS) SDK to support the ability to easily create, import, modify, and process ANSI/NIST-ITL biometric transaction files. In 2022, we completed the development of the Defense B-SDK, which allows the DoD and partner US Government (USG) agencies to rapidly develop and integrate multi-modal biometric software into an existing application or system of systems for identification purposes and improve interoperability between USG agencies that maintain biometric repositories free of cost to system integrators. This allows DoD and USG agencies engaged in biometric operations to develop customized solutions that are open, flexible, extensible, and can be readily maintained without being reliant on commercial developers and licensing costs.
In conjunction with its affiliate company Secure Planet, Inc., I3 recommends biometric products and provides customers with custom-developed solutions for identity management, access control, and standoff biometric identification by face, iris, heart and voice.
