“HANDHELD FORENSICS LAB” CONDUCTS ON-SITE, REAL-TIME FINGERPRINT ANALYSIS
On Sunday, Booz Allen will debut a powerful new device that will help law enforcement and the military conduct immediate fingerprint analysis at an incident scene – saving precious time in the initial stages of an investigation. The handheld VAMPIRE™ tactical device conducts real-time forensic analysis in the field, performing fast, accurate, on-site latent and live fingerprint identification and matching analysis in just seconds.
Not much larger than the average smartphone, the ruggedized, lightweight tool integrates custom state-of-the-art fingerprint analysis into a commercial mobile-device, enabling operators with minimal specialized training to perform advanced fingerprint processing. Designed for ease of use, the VAMPIRE device is a high-end tool that requires little forensic knowledge to perform advanced forensic processing, allowing agents arriving on scene to quickly collect any fingerprint evidence that may prove critical to the investigation.
The VAMPIRE device digitally captures latent fingerprint images directly from various surfaces using no lifting tape, which minimizes potential damage to fingerprints and results in better quality forensic evidence. VAMPIRE also conducts both live and latent identification to an onboard watch list and performs latent-to-latent matching, resulting in quick, easy identification of potentially critical leads. As law enforcement jurisdictions increasingly struggle with fiscal and human resource constraints, VAMPIRE can help save time and money in the criminal justice process by acting as a force multiplier.
“In today’s forensic environment, whether in a military, humanitarian, homeland security or law enforcement scenario, every second counts,” said Adam Weiner, a principal with Booz Allen. “By putting the VAMPIRE device in the hands of investigators, we can greatly reduce the time it takes to get valuable forensic information that could break open a case. VAMPIRE makes it possible to begin the forensic collection and analysis process before a trail goes cold and does so in ways that allow for faster pursuit of persons of interest.”
“VAMPIRE is the most recent example of how Booz Allen is pivoting to use its broad experiences in technical engineering, system integration and innovation to deliver market-wide products in the defense intelligence and law enforcement sectors,” said Weiner. “The VAMPIRE device was developed by Booz Allen’s Rapid Prototyping team, which quickly puts agile solutions into the field and is an important component of the firm’s Strategic Innovation Group (SIG).” The 1,800-person SIG captures the smart thinking that exists across the firm and build products around them that will resonate across the entire spectrum of our clients and priority markets.
Booz Allen will be demonstrating the VAMPIRE device at the 121st Annual International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference and Law Enforcement Education and Technology Exposition in Orlando, FL. The conference debut includes a simulated crime scene providing a live demonstration of the VAMPIRE device’s capabilities.
