The Defense Information Systems Agency has distributed new biometric devices across military partners under a pilot program in partnership with Qualcomm, FCW reported Wednesday. The program disseminated 50 units of the device with Joint Interoperability Test Command among the recipients, Stephen Wallace, systems innovation scientist at DISA, told FCW.

The command is working to evaluate the device that uses multiple biometrics to authenticate users. It's designed to analyze multiple user characteristics such as walking gait, facial structure and voice patterns, the report noted. Initial testing for the program with the 50 devices will conclude in the spring.
