Aware biometric software solutions are used toward several different aspects of visitor screening and border management. Aware solutions perform biometric search against watch lists upon a visitor’s visa application, and biometric verification upon their arrival at the border. It is also used to personalize and read travel documents such as e-passports.
In a typical system, Aware software is used to:
- automate collection, formatting and validation of high-quality fingerprints, facial biometrics, and biographic data according to global standards,
- perform biometric searches upon passport/visa application and border crossing,
- implement centralized workflows for data sharing between disparate systems,
- and provide custom reports on metrics such as biometric image quality and transaction throughput, useful for system diagnostics and monitoring.
Universal Registration Client (URC) is a biometric enrollment application used to automate the collection of high-quality fingerprint and face biometrics and other information. It can be easily configured to satisfy custom data collection and workflow requirements. BioComponents are .NET controls that run within the URC application to perform discrete, modality-specific workflows and functions including capture hardware abstraction.
BioSP aggregates enrolled data submitted from the workstations, performs configurable workflows to process and distribute the data, and integrates with other systems to share data and receive search result responses.
