Within minutes of knocking down the door of a suspected bomb maker in the Middle East, U.S. troops can fingerprint everyone they find inside, send scans across a satellite rink and find out if the subjects are suspected terrorists.

Biometrics – the science of identifying a person through their unique body measurements such as fingerprints, iris scans, voice prints or DNA - has come a long way, so much so, that a submission from theater can be searched in the DoD Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) with a response back to theater in less than two minutes.

This year’s 4th Annual Biometrics for National Security and Defense will:
- Identify opportunities for multi-modal biometric technologies
- Examine newly-developed biometrics systems
- Look at aspects of database management and fusion
- Discuss the future of programs such as NGI and US-VISIT
