"This was a highly complex and challenging project to deliver. HRS were involved from the early design stages, through development to delivery. HRS took a pragmatic approach to really understand the users and their environment, ensuring the delivered system met the requirements and all functionality."

Tim Lammers - Biometrics Project Manager, MoD

The Detail

Defence specialist Steria partnered with Human Recognition Systems (HRS) to win the Ministry of Defence (MoD) contract to deliver a ground breaking Biometric Data Capture System (BDCS).

The BDCS project combined identity checking, biometric site access control and mobile biometric capabilities with HRS responsible for working with global biometric partners, L1, to integrate a number of additional key functions within the mobile platform.

The system identifies individuals as they enter UK Controlled Bases and provides confirmation of identity via multi-modal biometric enrolment and search capabilities. Individuals enrol both irises, 10 fingerprints, facial image and biographic data.

Viewed by the MoD as essential to help secure and control access to military facilities in the field, BDCS is currently operational across a number military sites and provides an integral mobile biometric capability that can be scaled to meet requirements.

BDCS is the second successful project delivered by HRS to the MoD. In 2006, HRS worked with Steria to deliver a Biometric Identity Verification (BIV) project which provided the foundations for the BDCS program.
