FBI Certifies Non-Optical Fingerprint Scanner

SPARTANBURG, SC /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Biometrics announces Watson, the "world's first non-optical scanner to achieve FBI Appendix F certification." The FBI certified that Watson meets or exceeds all requirements listed in EBTS Appendix F Mobile ID SAP 45 of the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems Image Quality Specifications.

Watson is the "smallest and lightest Appendix F certified two-finger scanner in the world," weighing 115 grams and measuring 70 mm by 63 mm by 33 mm in size. Watson offers unique operational benefits compared with existing certified scanners, including an IP 67 durability rating, high-quality imaging in dirty environments, and easy operation in direct sunlight. In addition, it does not require latent prints to be wiped from the sensor surface. It is capable of performing both enrollment and matching for single or multiple finger applications. Watson is available in a form suitable for embedded hardware applications or external USB connections.

Watson uses Integrated Biometrics' patented Light Emitting Sensor (LES) technology. LES technology uses a highly engineered charged polymer film, interacting with the specific properties of live human skin to luminesce fingerprint images. Watson is provided with the Integrated Biometrics SDK, including the functionality needed for efficient integration of Watson into your application and operating environment.
