MegaMatcher Automated Biometric Identification System

Integrated multi-biometric solution for national-scale identification projects

MegaMatcher Automated Biometric Identification System is designed for large-scale biometric systems developers and integrators. The modular and customizable solution provides services for high-performance multi-biometric systems with multiple transactions.

Available as a complete system for the deployment of large-scale multi-biometric projects.

Features and Capabilities

  • Multiple complex biometric transactions processing with high speed and accuracy.
  • Technology proven in national-scale projects, like passport issuance and voter deduplication.
  • Fingerprint, face and iris modalities supported.
  • NIST MINEX-compliant fingerprint engine, NIST IREX proven iris engine.
  • Scalable, modular architecture with possible customization for project needs.
  • High availability and fault tolerance.
  • Interoperability with other systems.
  • Support for ANSI and ISO biometric template standards.

MegaMatcher Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) is designed as a complete system with all necessary components for deploying a large-scale biometric system. MegaMatcher ABIS 9.0 includes ready-to-use services and applications for running on regular hardware.

MegaMatcher ABIS 9.0 provides these capabilities for large-scale biometric identification systems:

  • High performance. MegaMatcher Automated Biometric Identification System is designed for fast processing of multiple biometric transactions with high accuracy and reliability. The Management Service distributes external requests between the corresponding services. The Image Processing Service performs parallel biometric template extraction from multiple images. The Matching Service can store biometric and demographic information for unlimited number of persons as well as perform fast search in the whole database.
  • Fingerprint, face and iris modalities support. The system can accept fingerprint, face and iris images for creating biometric templates and searching against the database. Each template can contain multiple fingerprints, irises or faces. Proprietary fused matching algorithm provides high matching accuracy.
  • Biometric adjudication. MegaMatcher ABIS can determine questionable biometric matching results like suspicious duplicate(s) or non-matching templates and forward them to human experts for manual adjudication. A specialized visual tool is provided to human experts to facilitate decision making.
  • Interoperability with other systems. Web-services are provided for communication with third party biometric systems to ensure all aspects of required biometric services as biometric data storing, update, identification, verification and submission of matching results.
  • High availability and fault tolerance. MegaMatcher ABIS architecture allows to reach high system reliability and better performance by running instances of some or all components in parallel. If an instance of a component becomes unavailable, the other instances of the component can still accept incoming requests and perform corresponding operations. All communications are designed as atomic transactions, thus in case of failure no information is lost or corrupted.
  • Customization for project needs. Most components of MegaMatcher ABIS can be customized for specific project needs and restrictions. The customization may range from user interface translation into required language to modifying the system architecture.
  • Biometric standards support. MegaMatcher ABIS 9.0 allows the use of ANSI/NIST-ITL-1, ISO/IEC 19794-2, ISO/IEC 19794-5 and ISO/IEC 19794-6 biometric template standards.
