2005 RCMP Benchmark: SAGEM Morpho Obtains Highest Overall Score

TACOMA, Wash. --(Business Wire)-- Jan. 6, 2006 -- During the 2nd quarter of 2005, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) organized one of the most challenging and rigorous benchmarks of the past few years. The benchmark, executed against background databases of fingerprint records, palm print records and unsolved latents provided entirely by the customer, covered all major types of searches. Moreover, all the searches processed during this benchmark were done both in full "lights out" mode (without human intervention) and in "best practice" mode as recommended by AFIS providers.

Although the detailed results are unknown to the providers, the RCMP officially informed SAGEM Morpho that it obtained the highest overall benchmark score among all competitors. The RCMP also informed all competitors that these results would be shared with police forces requesting them directly from RCMP.

The RCMP benchmark reinforces SAGEM as the AFIS supplier of choice for law enforcement and civil agencies throughout the United States, Canada and the world over. Particularly, the MetaMorpho(TM), the latest generation of SAGEM AFIS, is currently operational or under implementation at more that 40 different customer sites, including Interpol and many U.S. States.


The MetaMorpho(TM) is designed to provide an evolutionary platform, able to incorporate new functions and COTS software/hardware components such as the RapID(TM) or DigiScan(TM) Web.

DigiScan(TM) and RapID(TM) fulfill real-time identification needs. They allow fingerprint capture using forensic quality, optical livescans that transmit prints to a central site for search. RapID is a wireless mobile terminal for use on patrol to check a suspect's identity on the spot, while DigiScan(TM) is a desktop providing a large display and user-friendly interface.
