In doing so, the BIMA made Defense (DoD) component. On October 26, 2009, significant 9/11-related biometrics matches. The the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army directed the interoperability process with the Department redesignation of the Biometrics Task Force (BTF) of Homeland Security also gained momentum as the BIMA and recommended the establishment this past year. The BIMA played a key role of the BIMA as a Field Operating Agency. in introducing and incorporating biometrics capabilities into the north Atlantic Treaty This critical move ensures that the BIMA will Organization.

We are making significant progress The process to finalize the BIMA status as toward integrating biometrics into DoD business a permanent Field Operating Agency is still functions to increase efficiency, effectiveness and underway.

The forum was designed to bring together the Sincerely, biometrics community for a “roll up your sleeves” Dr. Myra S.

  • IDEnTIFY/EnABLE/PROTECT “Identify, Enable, Protect” articulates the BIMA core capability (identify), its utilization in security and business operations (enable) and its national security purpose (protect). Biometrics is a key capability that can identify the enemy, denying him the anonymity he needs to hide and strike at will. The ability to identify and verify individuals is also critical to ensure secure and expeditious business functions. As these biometrics capabilities are applied through various tactics, techniques and processes, they enable a wide range of possible missions, from military operations to business functions, that protect national interests. In business, biometrics capabilities can protect as well as expedite business processes. ABOUT THE BIMA BIMA MISSION The BIMA mission is to lead DoD activities to program, integrate and synchronize biometrics technologies and capabilities and to operate and maintain the DoD authoritative biometrics database in support of the national Security Strategy.2 www.biometrics.dod.mil

  • annUal rePort fy10 The BIMA employs a three-phased approach to accessing COTS and government-off-the- shelf components for consideration into the BIMA-Certified Products List. These phases include selection, technology assessment in a lab environment and technology assessment in an operational environment. As a result of this testing, the BIMA recommended that the DoD transition to an electronic capture and submission of fingerprints in the background investigation process, which the DoD aims to complete by December 31, 2013. The BIMA laid the groundwork for the inclusion of ten- print fingerprint live-scan scanners on the Army Computer Hardware, Enterprise Software and Solutions Program, the Army Desktop and the Mobile Computing-2 vehicle. Once fully implemented, DoD stakeholders will be informed by a centralized database of validated, appropriately priced biometrics capabilities for U.S. government applications. These capabilities are certified to be interoperable with the FBI Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System and the DoD ABIS. This procurement mechanism will promulgate the use of automated electronic fingerprint devices and will speed fingerprint capture, submission and processing times while providing higher-quality images.
