The DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Biometric and Identity Technology Center is S&T’s core biometric and identity RDT&E capability to drive enduring efficiencies and biometric innovations across DHS. Through the Technology Center, S&T conducts a series of Biometric Technology Rallies with industry solution developers and researchers to encourage industry innovation and advance technologies that support DHS operations. The second rally will take place in April 2019. Rally results will inform DHS planning activities, be shared with industry participants to improve product capabilities, and enable researchers to develop next generation capabilities.
