Cogent Systems' Fusion, a fully ruggedized, multi-modal, handheld biometric system, was designed and built from the ground up with input from the Department of Defense's Special Operations community. The Cogent Fusion handheld device provides a lightweight, wireless, multi-modal biometric collection and identification solution. Built to military MIL-STD-810 and Ingress Protection standards to handle stringent conditions, the Fusion has been rigorously tested by the Army's Biometric Task Force (BTF) and is the only handheld collection and matching system available today that has been certified by the BTF as 100 percent EBTS and EFTS compliant. The Fusion is equipped with full multi-modal capability -- with a 500 dpi FBI certified fingerprint sensor, high-resolution camera for facial portrait capture, and high-resolution infrared camera for iris and fingerprint latent capture. The Fusion can capture and store tens of thousands of records
consisting of forensic-quality fingerprints, latent fingerprints, iris images, photos and textual data for on-board watchlist searching. Weighing 1.2 pounds, the Fusion is equipped with a 3.5-inch color display and fits in the cargo pocket of standard tactical trousers.
