Abstract:

The DoD Counterdrug Technology Development Program Office, the National Institute of Justice NlJ, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA, NAVSEA Crane Division and NAVSEA Dahlgren Division are sponsoring an evaluation of commercial off the shelf COTS facial recognition products. The purpose of these evaluations is to accurately gauge the capabilities of facial recognition biometric systems that are currently available for purchase. The sponsoring agencies, as well as other government agencies, will use this information as a major factor when determining future procurement or development efforts. Participation in these tests is open to all facial recognition systems on the US commercial market. The U.S. Government will not compensate vendors to participate in these tests. Two categories of tests will be conducted Recognition Performance Tests and Product Usability Tests For each category, multiple tests will be performed to measure system performance in verification mode and in identification mode. The Recognition Performance Tests will use the FERET test methodology with a new database of images. The Product Usability Tests will evaluate performance in both low and medium security access control scenados.
