NORFOLK, VA - NORFOLK, Va. – A Sailor from a Navy visit, board, search and seizure team is collecting a subject’s biometrics via fingerprints for possible subject identification in the Identity Dominance System (IDS). The system – to be upgraded with a Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD)-developed IDS technology refresh in fiscal year 2021 – collects biometrics such as face, finger, and iris images, and enrolls that information into a local database to match against known persons of interest. Once the information has been captured, the system sends the information back to the authoritative database. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, NSWCDD scientists and engineers transitioned to telework while developing software in support of a complete technology refresh focused on modifying the IDS form factor to be smaller and lighter with an enhanced system performance that increases computing power, speed, local matching and communications capabilities.
