Wireless 3D Binocular
Face Recognition Technology
Hand-Held 3DMobileID System Integrating Surveillance Operations with On-Demand High Performance Identification
Capabilities at Ranges up to 200 meters*
U.S. Military Technology Ready for Commercialization
StereoVision Imaging, Inc. (SVI), sponsored and endorsed by U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is becoming the world's leading developer of 3D binocular-based imaging products for the military and law enforcement.
SVI's patented technology integrates high performance angular magnification binoculars coupled with real time 3D facial recognition capabilities. SVI's 3DMobileID system software allows uploading and identification against 2D facial databases.
Powerful 3D imaging algorithms extract faces from a crowd-of-faces, for proper facial detection, statistically improving performance over competing technologies.
Compare facial images from different sources to those stored in multi-million image databases
Instantly view watch lists with most similar identities
Control thresholds and watch list size
Manage demographics and other case-related data
Receive alarm notifications on mobile devices
How it Works:
Based on government award winning NIST 2D Face Recognition Vendor Test Algorithms, SVI researchers added key 3D pre-processing steps utilizing the data rich stereoscopic image capture nature of binocular optics. This allowed researchers to segment or automatically isolate a face out of cluttered real-world scenarios and photo-metrically enhance imagery providing uniform illumination across the face improving performance by 20-40.
||Typical concept of operations allows end user to view through binocular optics and have a person-of-interest under surveillance at ranges up to 100 meters from point of use.
End user simply presses a Capture Button on the device to perform real time identification against 2D database of faces.
SVI researchers have currently teamed with U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) as well as the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) to increase range to 200 meters.
