Establishing Facts - Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems


With its technology, DERMALOG High Speed AFIS provides an important contribution to the exposure and identification of persons who seek to take advantage of social services on multiple occasions or try to authorize themselves by supplying incorrect personal information and data, or who assume the identity of another person in order to escape justice.

In addition, DERMALOG High Speed AFIS reliably traces "duplicates" and "ghosts" in connection with drivers' licenses, passports, gun licenses, registration of persons entitled to vote, payment of pensions, location of unwilling alimony payers, etc.
  • database with tenprints (TP)
  • 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
