Innovation: A Long-Distance Fingerprint Scanner
Advanced Optical Systems says it has developed a device that can capture fingerprints from up to 6.5 feet away.
Seeing the light
The U.S. military often uses fingerprint scanners at security checkpoints in Iraq and Afghanistan. Advanced Optical Systems in Huntsville, Alabama, has developed a device that can make the verification process safer for soldiers. Unlike standard fingerprint scanners, which work only when a hand is in close range, the company’s AIRprint device captures fingerprints up to 6.5 feet away, in less than five seconds. The device could allow soldiers to verify prints from a safer distance, even from behind a blast wall. Advanced Optical Systems has demonstrated the AIRprint for U.S. Marine Corps officials, who hope to field-test the device.
