CrimTrac pushes ahead with replacement for NAFIS

NEC said that its fingerprint and facial recognition technology is employed by more than 1000 customers around the world, including the NT Police.

“NEC Australia was able to offer CrimTrac a proven solution through our global partnership with the NEC Biometrics Centre of Excellence in Sacramento, California,” NEC Australia sales director Chris Korte said in a statement.

“Our proven solution is based on a state-of-the-art multi-modal biometrics platform that NEC developed for the US market.”
