BRIAR

Biometric Recognition and Identification at Altitude and Range
BRIAR

Summary

The BRIAR Program aims to develop software algorithm-based systems capable of performing whole-body (WB) biometric identification at long-range and from elevated platforms. Many Intelligence Community and Department of Defense agencies require the ability to identify or recognize individuals under challenging scenarios, such as at long-range (e.g., 300+ meters), through atmospheric turbulence, or from elevated and/or aerial sensor platforms (e.g., ≥20° sensor view angle from watch towers or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). Expanding the range of conditions in which accurate and reliable biometric-based identification could be performed would greatly improve the number of addressable missions, types of platforms and sensors from which biometrics can be reliably used, and quality of outcomes and decisions.
