Next Generation Identification, a Lockheed Martin led team, successfully delivered the first Advanced Technology Workstation (ATWs) for the FBI’s new biometrics system. The new workstations will be replacing the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS), improving the ability of the FBI analysts and providers.
“The current IAFIS receives an average of 160, 000 fingerprint transactions per day, and on several occasions it has processed more than 200, 000 transactions in a 24-hour period, ” said FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Deputy Assistant Director Jerome M. Pender. “These ATWs will greatly improve the FBI’s ability to assess fingerprint matches.”
“Installing the Advanced Technology Workstations at the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division Complex in Clarksburg, W.Va., marked the first operational milestone for the NGI program, ” said Barbara Humpton, vice president, Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Services. “To see the new workstations in action, it’s quite clear what a difference this will make for the FBI’s talented and dedicated workforce.”
