Introduction

The FBI Biometric Center of Excellence (BCOE) will be leveraging the potential of newly emerging biometric technology to allow federal government agencies to increase their identity management capabilities. The BCOE will assist in implementing newly developed biometric modalities such as facial recognition, iris recognition, and palm print matching into large-scale federal government biometric systems. Research will be performed to support the multimodal fusion of numerous biometrics to result in a significantly more accurate and comprehensive identity management system. The BCOE will also work on developing and enhancing other potential new biometric technologies including footprint and hand geometry, gait recognition, etc.
