The patent covers a mobile, wireless biometric identification system
which includes a biometric capture device, associated software and
processes which enable a commercially available wireless communication
device, such as a smartphone, using a commercially established wireless
communication networks, to capture a digital image of a human biometric
(iris, fingerprint, etc.) for transmission via a secure connection to a
central server. The capture device is designed to focus on the difficult
task of capturing the highest possible quality image for encoding and
comparison, while the overall system is designed to leverage the
existing cellular communication network. At the server level, the server
system receives the image, encodes the image to a biometric template,
and compares the encoded template to a plurality of reference templates
stored in a database to identify the individual. Identification data is
then transmitted back to the device and displayed.
