Indonesian police needed a biometric system for storing biometric
data of its citizens to aid in criminal investigations.

They wanted to collect faces, fingerprints
and irises, and import data from older
systems for easy searching and
identification in the field. It is among the
largest in the world.

  • 180 milion

    records where each may include face, iris and ten fingerprints

  • 17 000

    Quick search of millions of records for a match, often from field stations in a country of 17,000 islands with unreliable or slow connectivity

  • Multiple

    Multiple legacy vendors’ systems with multiple technology platforms

See solution


Innovatrics has built a single, large scale criminal Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) that can process high volumes of fingerprints, irises and faces for identification purposes.

Innovatrics has also provided Inafis with a number of custom features, such as latent print manager and editor for criminal case management or finger segmentation solution to process older palm prints into separate fingerprints for easier search.

  • 3000 field stations

    with access to central biometric database

  • Criminal / Civil ABIS

    with high availability, fingerprint, face, iris, plam print matching and latent print search

  • Biometric audit

    due to quick response time

  • Large-scale template generation

    (180 million records) from multiple legacy databases

See result


Indonesia has shown that biometric systems can be efficiently used even with challenging connectivity and a large population.

INAFIS has already used Innovatrics ABIS in many situations including searching for terrorists and identifying victims of natural disasters. Increasing the security of the country, the system is being constantly updated with new features to curb criminality and prevent violence.

  • 5 seconds on average

    to search the whole database of over a billion separate record items

  • Victim identification

    takes days instead of weeks or months

  • Curbing terrorism

    due to quick response time

The power of
efficient biometric algorithm

Security as a priority

The system is designed with security in mind. Each operation requires authentication and is recorded for future audit.

Low bandwidth scenario

Field stations need to work even with low connectivity due to the country being split into thousands of islands. Low data requirements of ABIS mean that the search works even with irregular connectivity.

Multi-modal system

ABIS offers a multitude of ways how to identify a person. Even if one modality is unavailable, there are still others to rely on. The combination of face, fingerprints and iris can provide higher accuracy in identifying a person among 180 million records.

“We are happy to recommend Innovatrics to customers or partners who require an AFIS/ABIS for their projects particularly in the field of identification.”
