Suprema’s RealScan-F palm-print live scanner has been selected for the AFIS systems of the Polish National Police and Lithuania’s Citizenship & Migration Affairs.
The Polish National Police (Komenda Glowna Policji) is being provided with Suprema RealScan-F palm-print live scanners for its nationwide criminal AFIS operation. According to the company, this criminal AFIS for forensic investigation requires live scanners with stringent selection criteria on the image quality and recognition performance, and the RealScan-F was selected through 12-month field testing with a number of other vendor’s devices.
The RealScan-F live scanner has been qualified for the highest standard of FBI certification (IQS Appendix F), and captures single flat/roll, two finger flats, 4 finger slap, writer’s edge and palm prints. The device performs a scanning rate of more than 15 frames per second (in rolled fingerprint capture) which enables faster processing speed.
Suprema has also won the Lithuanian Government’s Citizenship and Migration Affairs project. Funded by the European Union, the project replaces legacy AFIS equipment with RealScan-F live scanners in the nation’s criminal AFIS. The Lithuanian Government has a plan to develop and integrate its newly implemented AFIS with the European Union’s Schengen Visa Information System (VIS) project.
