180 Million Record ABIS with Quick Response for Police Field Operations


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 million records, where each may include face, iris and ten fingerprints
  • 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
