Secure Planet, Inc. Introduces TacID Guard Dog

Arlington, VA – Secure Planet, Inc., announced today the release of TacID Guard Dog™, a real time on-the-move biometric capture, screening and alerting solution for border control, defense, access control and perimeter security environments. Guard Dog™ can be deployed on a variety of operating system platforms, requires no special or proprietary hardware, and embeds facial recognition algorithms from Rank One Computing (ROC). ROC’s algorithms – specifically designed to handle unconstrained face detection – have been deemed the most accurate from U.S. companies participating in the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Face Recognition Vendor Tests (FRVT) “Ongoing,”1 have demonstrated the fastest enrollment speeds and True Identification Rate (TIR) of any “Western” face recognition algorithms, and yield one of the industry’s lowest failure-to-enroll rates. Guard Dog™ is competing in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology Directorate’s (S&T) 2018 Biometric Technology Rally at the Maryland Test Facility (MdTF)2, having been down-selected in December 2017 and granted final system acceptance in March 2018. “We’re very excited about government, industry and public volunteer collaboration to evaluate new and advanced technology like Guard Dog™,” said Secure Planet CEO Bob Kocher. “With Guard Dog™, Secure Planet offers the most versatile combination of accuracy, affordability and efficiency in real-time facial recognition technology,” says Kocher.
