by msecadm4921

Human Recognition Systems (HRS), winners of the Home Office TD2 Innovation 2011 award, is launching its latest multi-modal biometric technology platform, ‘MForce’ at the National Security 2011 conference on July 5.

MForce is designed for organisations that operate in remote, difficult or temporary environments and need to manage identities and gather intelligence. The systems is configurable and provides biographic and biometric data capture, latent fingerprint capture and searching, location mapping, access control, skills and asset tracking.

National Security 2011 is at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre.

“Fresh on the back of our award-winning success with Biometrics In Motion, we are very proud to launch MForce. It is a highly portable multi-modal biometrics system combining finger, face, iris and DNA in a secure, easy-to-operate identification platform,” said Lee Hannis, Business Development Manager.

“MForce is integrated with the latest portable and handheld components, which support clients whether they’re on patrol, in a temporary camp or forward operating position,” said Lee.

“Additionally, it offers a plug and play versatility that no single biometric vendor can offer. This allows clients to select the right biometric device for their operation knowing that data can be synchronised and centrally managed regardless of the equipment used.”

HRS has been able to develop MForce thanks to its practical, hands-on deployment experience and knowledge gained in delivering rugged, mobile biometric systems for the military and other agencies operating in difficult environments. The MForce team also includes in-theatre experienced professionals and translation staff ready to perform data collection and identifications services.

Delegates attending the conference on 5 July can watch MForce demonstrations at the Human Recognition Systems exhibition stand.

In 2010, HRS secured a development contract with the Ministry of Defence through the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory’s (Dstl’s) Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) to see if its mobile technology could have a defence application.

“With our partners, we were delighted to receive the time and funding to research into this product for the Ministry of Defence because it clearly recognises that there is important potential and functionality of our technology in the military and defence sectors,” said Neil Norman, CEO of HRS.

The Centre of Defence Enterprise, is the point of contact in the MOD for private enterprises who are developing solutions and ensuring front-line armed forces have access to technologies that can make a major difference. As part of Dstl, CDE seeks to fund research in private sector innovations and ideas to help develop military equipment and capabilities.

“Knowing we may one day be able to support our armed forces with fast, easy-to-use technology that may make a positive difference at times of military conflict makes me feel very proud – and motivated to continue our research and development,” said Neil.
