Proposal Title: Mitigation of Contact Lens, Eye Surgery, Pupil Dilation, and Other Challenges in Iris Recognition
Topic Number: H-SB011.1-005
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Mitigation of Contact Lens, Eye Surgery, Pupil Dilation, and Other Challenges on Iris Recognition
Organization: Member of the Family LLC

Abstract: Member of the Family LLC`s (MOTF) proposal is designed to study and analyze the effects of contact lens usage, eye surgery and various types of pupil dilation as they relate to the accuracy and performance of current iris recognition systems. MOTF`s study will be based on clinical data that will be gathered in both hospital and private practice settings. This will assure that we include in the study as wide a range of medical and surgical subjects as possible within the timeframe and scope of the study. We expect that this preliminary study will provide sufficient raw data for us to begin to develop approaches to detect and mitigate obstacles to iris recognition. Phase II of the project would provide the additional time and resources to expand the biometric database to more completely consider anomalies to recognition that may be discovered in Phase I. MOTF is confident that there are numerous private and government applications for this next step technology to make commercialization of the findings attractive to system manufacturers and users.
