NEC Corporation of America, Inc. Key Developments

NEC Corporation of America Announces Western Identification Network (WIN) System Acceptance

NEC Corporation of America (NEC) announced that its Integra-ID5(TM) Multimodal Biometric Identification System (MBIS) solution was accepted by the Western Identification Network (WIN), a consortium of western U.S. state and local law enforcement agencies. The contract for the implementation of this system was awarded to NEC in October, 2011. This acceptance follows several phases of testing including Factory Acceptance Test, System Acceptance Test at each of the eight WIN Member States, and a User Acceptance Test. The WIN network consists of a shared MBIS processing service bureau that provides the ability to search the criminal and civil biometrics records of its member agencies, including interfaces to other neighboring states, and agencies. NEC delivered this new upgrade to WIN as a service whereby NEC hosts and manages the WIN solution at its data centers. Among services provided during implementation: Data migration and conversion including de-duplication of 18 million tenprint records and search of all unknown latent images. The data conversion process also included the searching of 41,000 unknown latent images, resulting in 208 latent hits; incorporation of several new technologies to improve accuracy, reliability and availability. Foremost is the use of multiple algorithms and multiple encoding (each record was encoded multiple times, utilizing a variety of algorithms, resulting in a dataset optimized for accuracy) and secondary fusion matching to improve accuracy and enhance crime labs productivity; Customized workflow and Computerized Criminal History (CCH) file interface for each of the eight member states, with support for hundreds of submitting livescans -- all within a secure framework, shared matching, archive and MBIS disaster recovery services; a shared interface to the FBI's Next Generation Identification system over the CJIS WAN; an Active/Active Disaster Recovery system, allowing for continued operations if a disaster strikes. During Site Acceptance Trials, a simulated transition from primary to disaster recovery system took less than 1 hour; New Latent Case Management System (LCMS) where all latent images and transactions are stored in new FBI EBTS/EFS (Extended Feature Set) Full annotation, Type 9 format.; an integrated NIST Archive repository with web-based client access that retains all registered and transactional data in standards based FBI EBTS format.

Calgary Police Service Selects NEC Corporation of America's Facial Recognition Solution

NEC Corporation of America along with NEC Corporation announced that the City of Calgary and the Calgary Police Service, or CPS, has selected NEC's NeoFace Reveal facial recognition solution. Similar to fingerprint and DNA evidence capture at scenes, facial recognition will create efficiencies by providing more viable leads for investigators. Similar to a fingerprint latent capture and search subsystem, NeoFace Reveal will enable CPS to scan and enhance even poor quality latent facial images. NeoFace Reveal leverages company's best-in-breed facial enhancement and matching technology for the processing and comparison of latent facial images. Images can be retrieved from either previously captured still photos or pre-recorded video streams and matched against a master facial image database for identification of individuals. NeoFace is highly scalable for large throughput volumes and is capable of integrating into existing operational and security processes.

NEC Corporation, NEC Corporation of America and Texas State University Sign MOU to Collaborate on Social Infrastructure Projects

NEC Corporation, NEC Corporation of America and Texas State University announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that establishes a partnership between NEC and the University to conduct collaborative research and development to improve existing social infrastructure operation and management, such as water conservation and resource management. Under the agreement, NEC and the University will jointly pursue future strategies to develop solutions for the responsible and sustainable use of natural resources. NEC and Texas State will work together to identify opportunities to perform testing related to advanced water conservation technology. One such project is water leak detection. NEC has developed cutting-edge technology that offers municipal water utility companies a cost-effective way to manage water resources to help meet the water needs of the communities they serve. This technology utilizes high-precision sensors that collect data on leaks in a community's water system. NEC collects and analyzes the sensor data through the cloud and then offers remediation solutions to the water utility companies. NEC will be conducting Proofs of Concept (POC) of the water leak system in a few U.S. cities.
