Digital Signal Corporation have received $15 million dollars in funding to research and develop 3D long-range facial recognition technology for both government and commercial use.

Measuring the distinct geometry of facial features, 3D facial recognition technology is supposedly far more accurate than fingerprint recognition.  According to Marketwire, the further development of such technology will make the world safer by; ‘precisely identifying and monitoring moving non cooperative subjects at long range’ – namely criminals and terrorists.   The face scanning systems will also have a number of positive applications such as identifying loyal shoppers, ‘friendly’ soldiers, and frequent fliers.

Little information about the technology is listed on the company’s website reportedly due to their work with defence and intelligence organizations.  However, DSC CEO David Guttadauro did speak about the research to Marketwire;

‘In an increasingly uncertain world, leaders in the security industry are constantly seeking the most effective, state-of-the-art systems to support their objectives, whether it be clearly identifying known terrorists at an airport or tracking down a repeat shoplifter or member of an organized crime family.’
