Abstract:

Facial recognition technology will create the capability to provide positive identification of persons in a battlefield environment in the year 2035. This paper examines the state-of-the-art in facial recognition technology in the areas of access control and law enforcement. The technologies are then projected forward to examine a notional facial recognition system in the year 2035 and examine its components. In discussions with biometric experts from both the United States and United Kingdom, the viability of such a system is examined. Challenges, both in the technology and politicalbureaucratic realms, are examined and possible solutions are posited.
