Biometrics for Defence

Biometrics refers to automated identification methods using unique human identifiers such as fingerprints and iris and facial patterns. Biometrics, regarded as a sophisticated means for identity management, is useful not only for securing airports and borders but it has many current and potential uses for the worlds armed forces, such as identifying adversaries who hide among the civilian population, controlling access to military facilities and even in providing medical and other services to personnel. The biometrics market is changing from merely homeland security to an intricate part of the defence strategy.


The defence biometrics market is still dominated by the United States, which has displayed the greatest urgency to use the technology following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Subsequent military and security engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan have reinforced the need for advanced security systems. However, over the next few years - when the technology will have proven its usefulness in military applications increasing numbers of global military forces are expected to start investing in the technology. The use of biometrics for military applications continues to grow throughout the forecast period 2008-2018
