Effective Crime Solving - Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems


The DERMALOG Criminal AFIS – employed by police departments, federal police, intelligence services, the military and judicial authorities all around the world – provides extensive support in the investigation of crimes and consequently in protecting society.

The use of fingerprint identification (dactyloscopy) and its biometric application (AFIS) is sanctioned by legal systems throughout the world.

As a consequence criminals can be convicted exclusively on the basis of identified fingerprints that they leave at the scene. For this, as an example, in many countries at least 12 minutiae must be identified. As a matter of course, the advanced status and market orientation of the DERMALOG AFIS technology is constantly guaranteed by our active participation in the advisory committees of international police organizations.
  • Police database with tenprints (TP) and latent prints (LP)
  • Includes TP-TP, TP-LP, LP-TP, LP-LP searching
  • World's fastest AFIS coding and matching
  • High-performance pre-filtration, adjustable using sample specimen
  • Best performance in recognition rates
  • No special hardware necessary, as commercially available standard hardware is used
  • Runs on all hardware platforms and common operating systems such as Windows and/or Unix
  • Use of standard databases, such as Oracle, SQL Server, Informix, etc.
  • The customer has full authority over his own database – no access or data transfer to the AFIS is needed during remote maintenance.
  • Coding and matching of
    • epidermal ridges
    • forks
    • pattern centers
    • deltas
  • Integration of digital photos and signatures
