A Brief History

Animetrics was founded in 2003 with a vision for developing solutions to fundamental problems in facial identification systems. Post-9/11, Government and facial identification providers have been scrambling to provide effective systems which effectively address security needs at airports, international points of entry, and public venues.

Animetrics has developed technologies which allow for the comprehension of critical 3D information in conventional photographic and video imagery. This will allow for unprecedented flexibility and accuracy in the implementation of facial identification systems.

Based in beautiful Jackson, New Hampshire, in the shadow of Mt. Washington surrounded by endless four season recreation, the headquarters and development team are creating the innovation of the future. Animetrics is comprised of scientists and scientific and graphic programmers lead by a seasoned management team:
