Lockheed Martin Completes System Test and Integration for FBI IAFIS
ORLANDO, FL, August 11th, 1999 -- Lockheed Martin Information Systems announced today the completion of its system test and integration of the FBI's Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS). IAFIS allows law enforcement agencies at local, state, and national levels to determine in as little as two hours if a detained person has a criminal record. Additionally, the system matches latent fingerprints lifted from a crime scene to make the same past criminal record Lockheed Martin Information Systems, as principal contributor to the development and deployment of IAFIS, provides integration of the three IAFIS components; identification tasking and networking, interstate identification index, and AFIS. The company also built the automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS) segment.
"AFIS is world-class biometric identification technology," said Lockheed Martin Information Systems President John Hallal. "This is the largest system of its kind in the world, offering rapid and accurate search of over 400 million criminal fingerprints."
Sagem/Morpho, Calspan, and Hewlett Packard were key partners with Lockheed Martin in the development of the AFIS component.
Part of the Corporation's $5.2 billion Information & Services Sector, Lockheed Martin Information Systems is a world leader in the delivery of support solutions for customer programs, to include integrated information technology and identification, automated test systems, and simulation and training.
