1 min read

The Special Operations Command is planning to deploy a mobile application capable of performing biometric activities on the field, National Defense reported Friday

Glen Cullen, USSOCOM's program manager for sensitive site exploitation under the program executive office for special reconnaissance, surveillance and exploitation, told audiences at the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference in Florida that the app will use touchless fingerprint technology to minimize errors usually made by traditional bimoetric platforms.

He added that the app will provide users the freedom to no longer carry large devices to collect information for intelligence-related missions. USSOCOM expects to select a contractor for the effort next spring and field the app by 2021.
