Frost & Sullivan Recognizes AOptix Technologies for its Pioneering Contribution to Security through Noninvasive Biometrics
Date:10/6/2008

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the noninvasive biometrics market, Frost & Sullivan presents AOptix Technologies Inc. with the 2008 North American Award for Technology Innovation in recognition of its development of an adaptive optics-based stand-off iris recognition system.

The innovative iris authentication solution from AOptix can automatically find and accurately identify a subject's iris at a stand-off distance of 2 meters from the system. The system uses the principles of adaptive optics, which were initially used in astronomy for real-time correction of optical abnormalities resulting from atmospheric disturbances.

"Increasing terrorist threats and security infringements over the past few years have highlighted the need for better border management solutions, challenging the security industry and government authorities to develop and implement customized solutions that will effectively identify and screen cross border travelers," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Deepa Rangarajan. "Assessment must happen quickly and unobtrusively to avoid bottlenecks, and AOptix's stand-off recognition technology -- effectively "iris at a distance" -- provides an ideal solution."

The company's iris recognition system employs closed loop control, or feedback, to automate the subject acquisition process and provide consistently high quality iris imaging. First, a wavefront sensor measures optical abnormalities, which are known technically as wavefront error. The closed-loop control system then directs suitable commands to the optical system, including a deformable mirror, so as to compensate for these distortions in real time. This technology allows for correction of both simple and complex optical distortions, thus enhancing spatial resolution of the images. In the company's 2 meter system, adaptive optics technology ensures that iris images are always centered and focused.
