In the aftermath of the terrorism attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States realized the risk that terrorism posed to its sovereignty, peace, and way of life. This Strategy Research Project contends that biometrics technology, once fully implemented as a deterrent, will safeguard and secure key U.S. infrastructure, networks, and platforms against the threat of terrorism. This paper examines the use of biometrics technology in an era of Department of Defense DoD transformation and downsizing. The paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of biometrics to DoD given current fiscal constraints and budgetary concerns. The paper will examine several of todays most utilized biometric techniques from their inception to their more recent employment. The paper concludes with recommendations for senior Army leaders to consider as they employ biometrics in the defense of the nation.
