Remote Search jobs are submitted in the same way as a standard local search job, using the familiar “Search Wizard” interface. Similarly, Remote Search results are viewed in AFIX Tracker’s Stereo Comparison screen allowing users to use Remote Search with zero learning curve.
The AFIX Engine(s) at the remote agency will process incoming search jobs for all requesting agencies to whom they have provided permission. Incoming Remote Search jobs are assigned lower priority so they will not impact local search performance.
