Aware has provided biometrics software products since 1993, when it helped the FBI design and optimize the “WSQ” fingerprint image compression algorithm for the first large-scale fingerprint digitization effort. Shortly thereafter, Aware was the first to commercialize WSQ as a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software development kit (SDK) product.
Over the following twenty-five years, Aware has consistently introduced a diverse array of software products used to integrate advanced biometric functionality quickly and easily into systems for a variety of applications.
As our product portfolio has broadened, so has our ability to provide complete end-to-end biometric software solutions, configured to the individual requirements of our customers. Today, Aware software is trusted by more than 100 commercial leaders and more than 80 government agencies around the world.
