This project provides a secure, high-capacity, state of the art computer laboratory to continue support of the biometrics standards and metrology program focusing on storage, computer cycles, networking, and environment. It also seeks to fill a rapidly growing gap in technical knowledge and standards for intelligently designing and testing extremely large scale multimodal biometric systems by developing an open multimodal reference architecture and test bed. Members of the Biometric Research & Testing Lab Team primarily work on this project whose mission is to support the Image Group's current and future computational needs; therefore, the team and this project have relevance and interaction with all the other projects in the group. Members of this team work on the Next Generation Test Bed project as well as support the other biometric testing projects in the group by setting up experimental datasets, running test participant technologies through testing protocols, and handing off the search results to biometric test coordinators for analysis and report writing. Therefore, their labor is matrixed into the other testing projects as well.
