Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2004, $773,341)
This project will scientifically explore photographic contactless capture of fingerprints, palm prints, and hand geometry in order to achieve accurate capture at high resolution in 5 seconds. This effort will process and improve photographic capture sufficient to construct photograph-to-ink prints that match rolled ink prints of the same subjects in Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS), allowing the development of an automated fingerprint imaging systems compatible with NIST standards and interoperable with the FBI's IAFIS system for use by local and other law enforcement agencies.
