IDENT1

IDENT1

Northrop Grumman delivered the first open system architecture, automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS) in the United Kingdom, and is now deploying IDENT1, the first national fingerprint service to include end-to-end responsibility for response times and accuracy, to the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA).

IDENT1 is an advanced identification technology based on an integrated system that links police and justice agencies throughout the United Kingdom. Its primary capabilities include finger and palm print analysis, print search capabilities with access to international databases, verification of the identities of arrested persons, and information sharing capabilities between state, local, and federal agencies throughout England, Scotland, and Wales. IDENT1 provides the basis for future integrated technologies such as biometric or facial imaging.
