Biometric Project Experience

Our Experience

  • Provided the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva with a system to identify the bodies of North African migrants who’d drowned in the Mediterranean trying to get to Europe, i.e. with closed eyes and often with damaged faces

  • Led the development of the largest image processing system of its type in the world at the time for the UK National Crime Squad (now the NCA). They wanted seizures of images of child abuse to be analyzed to identify the abusers and help recover the children. The biometrics involved included specially-developed full and partial face, scene, and object recognition. The system, called ChildBase, searched millions of images and was launched at the House of Lords

  • Adapted these capabilities for disaster victim identification. Combining the ability to recognize partial faces and partial scars, marks, and tattoos can help identify victims of earthquakes, tsunamis, etc.

  • These unique biometrics can also uniquely help identify the branded victims of human trafficking

  • Led the implementation of a major system for a law enforcement agency in California to provide face recognition capabilities across their combined offender database of over 2m records.  This system was the largest police imaging system on the US west coast at the time

  • Following the Bataclan nightclub bombing in Paris in 2015, provided the Gendarmerie Nationale with a system to help match faces with identity documents found at the scene

  • Worked with a European partner to identify and install an access control system for the office of the country’s president

  • Was contracted to advise a leading US-based international call centre platform supplier on the best combination of biometrics and other identifiers to confirm that agents are physically at their workstations during their shifts
