'Age of Biometrics' has arrived

IBM Joins the Lockheed Martin Team for FBI's Next Generation Identification Program: cnn.com/news
May 02, 2008

"Lockheed Martin(NYSE: LMT) today announced that IBM (NYSE: IBM) will join its industry team to develop and maintain the Next Generation Identification (NGI) system for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) -- the new multi-modal, state-of-the-art biometrics system to be used by state, local and federal authorities."

"As the prime contractor on the FBI's NGI program, Lockheed Martin will provide program management and oversight as well as biometric and large systems development and integration expertise. Joining the NGI team as a subcontractor, IBM will provide some information technology services, as well as specific software and hardware to be used in the NGI system."

"The NGI system will expand fingerprint processing capacity and will now also include palm prints, iris and facial recognition capabilities. Additionally, the system requires a significant degree of technical flexibility in order to accommodate other biometric modalities that may mature and become important to law enforcement efforts in the future."
The NGI system and some very 'big names', and, it's not 'rocket science' is it?
They're getting serious about this apparently with aerospace engineers Lockheed Martin and computer giant IBM collaborating to create new biometric identification tools. Looks like in the 'New World Order' the identification 'business' is going to be rocket science.
