Animetrics Named August "Innovation Rocks!" Award Winner

Conway, NH - August 6th, 2008

The development of new facial recognition technology has led to Animetrics being named the "Innovation Rocks!" Award winner by the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development's Business Resource Center for the month of August.
The Conway-based company recently announced that it has completed the first stage of integrating its 3D Face Viewer software into the United States Army Biometric Automated Toolset (BAT) system. This project will incorporate 2D-to-3D, patent pending technology into the BAT system used by the U.S. Army Military Intelligence Center's Language and Technology Office located at Fort Huachuca, AZ. This software gives the Army the opportunity to make 3D images out of high interest subjects on their "watch list" for use in gathering intelligence.
"Animetrics is an amazing company that is changing the world right from their office in the Mt. Washington Valley Technology Village," said New Hampshire Business Resource Center Director Roy Duddy. "Keeping our military personnel and our citizens safe is of paramount importance and Animetrics is creating innovative products that are protecting Americans both here and abroad."
The 3D Face Viewer now being deployed within the U.S. Army's BAT system is the basis for enhancing the more than one million entries on the BAT face watch list with the next generation of 3D face recognition technology.
"Innovation Rocks!" is an initiative sponsored by the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development's Business Resource Center in coordination with Rock 101 (WGIR-FM) and the The Pavilion at the Hilton Garden Inn Manchester Downtown to celebrate the creativity and ingenuity of New Hampshire innovators.
