Panasonic Iris Recognition Helps Authorities Locate Missing Children

SECAUCUS, N.J. — Panasonic System Solutions is assisting the Children’s Identification and Location Database (CHILD) Project by providing the means whereby law enforcement and social service agencies across the United States can identify missing children.

At the forefront of the CHILD Project is the Panasonic System Solutions’ BM-ET330 iris recognition reader. The biometric templates created by the BM-ET330 are used to identify missing children and adults.

A special video camera made by Panasonic captures a detailed image of the iris in both eyes. Biometric software inside the reader, developed by Iridian Technologies Inc., then makes a map, or template, of the person’s iris pattern. A central database of stored templates is maintained by the Nation’s Missing Children Organization (NMCO) and the National Center for Missing Adults (NCMA). These organizations deal exclusively with missing persons in cooperation with law enforcement, social service agencies and the families of missing persons.
