MorphoTrustTM Investigator 360


Equip your Investigators to quickly identify persons of interest


Whether you are working with face, finger, palm or iris images, your investigators need the tools to filter, enhance, compare and locate potential matches as quickly and efficiently as possible. Today, law enforcement officials have a record number of fingerprints and facial images available to them, including those from mobile devices, social media and surveillance video. While the use of facial images in addition to fingerprints helps solve more crimes, image quality does pose a challenge. Fortunately, with ongoing improvements in biometric technologies, and products like Face Examiner Workstation, investigators now have the powerful tools they need to help them quickly and accurately narrow the pool of potential suspects for further investigation.

To initiate the investigation process, MorphoTrust offers MorphoTrust ABIS® our automated biometric identification system that supports face, finger, palm and iris with the ability to add new biometric modalities as needed in the future. ABIS does the initial searches and returns a set of potential matches for further investigation. This platform is used by some of the largest law enforcement agencies in the country, and has become the standard for federal agencies like the Department of Defense.

In addition to the Tenprint and Latent Examiner Workstations commonly used, MorphoTrust Face Examiner Workstation offers a forensic face platform that can be used to follow up on investigative leads when other methods fall short. Historically, the successful use of facial photos to accurately identify suspects and persons of interest has been dependent on the availability of high quality images. This works well for controlled environments, but what happens when the conditions are not ideal?

With our Face Examiner Workstation, your operators have the ability to manipulate and enhance facial images to the point where they can be submitted to an automated facial recognition system (AFIS) or MorphoTrust ABIS with a much higher probability of returning a positive match. This includes state-of-the-art 3D modeling and imaging tools to extract faces from grainy or unclear images and correct the effects of poor lighting, off-angle poses and blurriness. The sophisticated image enhancement techniques are similar to those found in Adobe® Photoshop, however, only minimal training is required. The workstation interface is simple and easy to use and does not require “power users” to get good results. The application helps you analyze, search and identify subjects taken from CCTV cameras and surveillance tapes as well as still images.
