32 pages
This is the Software Design Description (SDD) document that explains the design of the Minutia Deviation Tool (MDT), a prototype Computer Software Configuration Item (CSCI) (software utility) that aids a user in designating equivalent minutia pairs across two fingerprint biometric images and calculating the pair's minutia spatial deviations.
The MDT will be used as a tool to support research and analysis of contactless and contact-based fingerprint data. In describing the design of the MDT, this SDD document addresses system-wide design decisions, architectural design, and the implementation of the CSCI capabilities specified in the Software Requirements Specification (SRS) document (See NCJ - 249556). Included in the CSCI-wide design decisions are personnel-related design, training requirements, and logistics requirements. 12 figures, 3 tables, and 7 references
