Biometrics in support of military operations: lessons from by William C. Buhrow

By William C. Buhrow

Biometrics in help of army Operations: classes from the Battlefield examines and evaluates fresh U.S. army reports in Iraq and Afghanistan within the context of using biometrics and similar applied sciences. The e-book takes a entire examine how biometrics has been used to help quite a few army operations and indicates ways in which its makes use of might be extra constructed. It fills a void in figuring out how you can include biometrics by means of offering a advisor to strengthen and determine formal operational roles and techniques whilst making use of the technology.

Written in a casual sort that makes it obtainable to those that aren't inevitably operators or technicians of biometrics applied sciences, this ebook bridges an current hole to raised train leaders in and out of the U.S. army at the far-reaching capability of biometrics in aid of tactical operations. It argues that the space among these inside and out the army is the results of failure to rfile classes realized from conflict adventure, in addition to an absence of a mixed imaginative and prescient one of the Joint Forces to completely realize and take advantage of the features of biometrics for more desirable destiny good fortune. This booklet fills that gap.

Biometrics has nice power as an efficient software if effectively built and applied. The ebook concludes with a glance on the way forward for rising functions for the army but additionally considers a much wider diversity of deployment of biometrics outdoors the army, comparable to in governmental enterprises, together with international international relations. Biometrics should be utilized to any operational sector that calls for exact and fast id of unknown participants as a way to aid its operations and guard team of workers and assets. Biometrics in aid of army Operations is a vital starting element in an rising box for gaining knowing and higher mastery of biometrics.

Central Command (CENTCOM) regarding predeployment biometrics training. There were dozens of required joint training tasks for individuals and units deploying to the CENTCOM area but none for biometrics. I eventually put together a short list and sent it to the CENTCOM Biometrics office, but I am not sure if they were ever put into formal usage. 31 BioMetriCs in sUPPort oF MiLitAry oPerAtions Quality and completeness of collection are two key areas that also need to be maximized whenever possible.

Unfortunately, such a common sense and holistic approach to collecting biometric data was not employed to maximum effect through most of the last decade of war, primarily because there was a lack of the vision and authority to make it happen. ” I could have written an entire chapter just about training issues. When I returned to the United States from Afghanistan, I went immediately to Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) at Fort Polk, LA to discuss biometrics training for predeploying forces and observe some of the training in action.
