TIE Technologies, Inc. an information technology, security and telecommunications company announced, the launch of its TIE TeleMetric Inc.’s BIO Metrics and Intelligent Video research and development project concerning positive identification technologies.
The U.S. Department of Defense Enterprise Strategic Plan focuses on programs that develop “measurable physical and behavioral characteristics that enable the establishment and verification of an individual’s identity.”
Development of new biometrics solutions will enable national defense agencies to have positive identification of hostile targets besides supplying commercial and government team members with anti-fraud and security breach protections, said company sources.
The U.S Government has set up a national security agency known as Biometrics Identity Management Agency or BIMA which leads the Department of Defense’s activities to prioritize, integrate and synchronize biometrics technologies and capabilities. It will also manage the Department of Defense’s authoritative biometrics database to support the national security strategy.
There is a critical need for an effective security and monitoring system as is highlighted by the following announcement by the New York City Police Department- “Although traditional access control systems may effectively mitigate the threat to buildings from ‘outsiders,’ history has demonstrated the potential for ‘insider’ exploitation of building vulnerabilities and sabotage.”
Edward Andercheck, Chairman and CEO of TIE Technologies said, “TieTeleMetrics’ and several key strategic partners have launched this development project to evolve and integrate state of the art technologies in response to today’s heightened critical need for comprehensive actionable intelligence.”
He also added that TIE is striving to bring BIO Metric identity authentication technology, smart video recognition systems, and integrated networks together to generate key predictive data to warn security personnel against potential threats. Advancements in science help easy identification and authentifictaion by unique BIO Signatures generated by individuals entering or leaving designated areas. This helps protect buildings and weapon systems besides strengthening security personnel in big cities, Andercheck added.
TIE Technologies is a technology driven systems integration and Telecommunications Company whose Smart Technology Solutions (News - Alert) help meet logistical challenges for large businesses and small businesses.
