Project Summary for 2002-IJ-CX-K004
The proposal requests funding to continue development of the human skin biometric identification (LightPrint) system. Additional funding is necessary to mature the technology Lumidign, Inc. (the designer of the Lightprint system) is currently working on in conjunction with Smith & Wesson. The additional funds will be used to bring the LightPrint system to a point where it is incorporated into handgun access control applications. The ultimate goal of this proposal is to build and test a functional pistol prototype with an onboard LightPrint human skin biometric identification system.
