Rugged mobile biometric solutions for you
For over 30 years, AMREL has been a leader in developing highly reliable, fully rugged mobile solutions that operate in the most demanding environments. We supply more than multi-modal handhelds for collection, enrollment, and identification; we provide a generation of expertise. We customize even low-volume orders to craft solutions that are perfect for your needs.
Enroll in the field and save time
We devised practical, durable, reliable mobile solutions that enable enrollment as well as authentication and verification in the field. This eliminates unnecessary trips back to the station/base/office, and saves you hours of time. Our mobile rugged biometric solutions capture and generate the highest quality images on the market.
More quality means less work
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) research demonstrates image quality directly impacts identification match accuracy. By deploying the highest quality sensors on the most reliable platforms, we reduce the potential for missed identification/verification of a subject, additional secondary workload processes, and overall fingerprint examiner workload.
FAP 45 certification = confidence
AMREL’s biometric solutions use SherlockTM, the world’s thinnest, lightest weight, certified fingerprint scanner. This industry leading rugged sensor has been certified by the FBI to generate high-quality FAP-45 (Appendix F) and PIV compliant Electronic Fingerprint Templates (EFT). Not only does this save you time by reducing errors and the necessity for repeat operations, it allows access to greatest variety of databases, including the national Integrated Automated Fingerprint Information System (IAFIS).
Our biometric tools love to get dirty
Harsh lighting, uncontrolled environments, dust, and rain are facts of life for public safety officers, relief workers, and warfighters. They can count on AMREL’s biometric solutions to operate even in the most extreme environments.
A tough biometric solution needs a tough sensor
AMREL wanted a sensor that was as rugged as our computer platforms. Sherlock’s IP65-rated Light Emitting Sensor (LES) was a perfect match for our durable mobile solutions. Sherlock’s LES multilayer, polymer composite film resists abrasion, operates at extreme temperatures, and isn’t affected by fog or condensation. Unlike traditional optical sensors, direct and bright sunlight do not diminish its ability to capture high quality fingerprint images. Furthermore, the LES sensor is less sensitive than old-fashion systems to oils left behind from previous users; other sensors need to be cleaned after each capture.
Get it right the first time
Dirt and humidity can be major obstacles to capturing fingerprints. Not for Sherlock. Its LES system uses adaptive circuitry and dynamic capture algorithms to automatically optimize for wet or dirty fingers. Furthermore, special optical bonding reduces glare, reflection, and distortion. The system captures a clear, full, and consistent high quality image even under the most challenging conditions.
