New FBI system boosts fingerprint ID capability

The FBI is beginning to replace its fingerprint identification system with a next-generation version that will dramatically speed up the time it takes to link prints to an identity. The agency says the next generation identification system reached initial operating capability this month at its Clarksburg, West Virginia information services facility. For high-priority prints, it’ll be able to find a match in as little as ten minutes – compared to the two hours required for a ten-fingerprint match using the previous generation IAFIS system.
