FBI Launches Its Next Generation Identification (NGI) System

The future is now according to this article from the Homeland Security Newswire.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently launched its innovative Next Generation Identification (NGI) system, which will gradually phase out the old Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS). This phase includes the core processing and matching capability using ten fingerprints, which is possible because of Morpho Biometric Search Services (MBSS) from MorphoTrak.

MorphoTrak’s MBSS solution was incorporated into NGI through a subcontract agreement with Lockheed Martin, which is leading NGI development for the FBI.

“Our MBSS solution provides the accuracy, throughput and speed required for the world’s largest law enforcement identification system,” said MorphoTrak president and CEO Daniel Vassy.

NGI will gradually replace the old Integrated Fingerprint Identification System. Phase one of the replacement was targeted at the basic identification usage of all law enforcement agencies – the core biometric processing and matching capability using ten fingerprints.

Law enforcement agencies throughout the United States and civil agencies doing background checks will use the NGI system.
