Biometric technology for personal identification and access control in defence and security applications

The growing instances of insurgencies and the rising threat of terrorism have attracted increasing interest in adopting personal biometric authentication and access control based on iris, facial and fingerprint recognition for military and law enforcement applications.

Security personnel can utilise easy-to-use biometric tools and devices to enhance their real-time capability to thoroughly scrutinise and determine whether an individual is seeking legitimate access or poses any threat to national and homeland security.
