AwareABIS™ is an Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) used for large-scale biometric identification and deduplication, with support for fingerprint, face, and iris modalities. Its highly modular architecture allows it to be configured and optimized for either civil or criminal applications.

It has the flexibility to utilize Aware’s high-performance, NIST-tested Nexa™ face, fingerprint, and iris matching algorithms, as well as top-tier fingerprint algorithms from 3rd-party providers. Together, these features make it the best ABIS on the market not only for extreme configurability but for prevention of vendor lock-in.

Astra™ is a cluster computing platform used for large-scale biometric identification and deduplication using fingerprint, face, and iris recognition. It is a highly scalable platform that performs one-to-many search or one-to-one match against large stores of biometrics and other identity data. It does so by deploying biometric data and matching algorithms across a cluster of multiple computing nodes.
