Press Release Body: Biometrics refers to automated identification methods using
unique human identifiers such as fingerprints and iris and facial patterns.
Biometrics, regarded as a sophisticated means for identity management, is useful not
only for securing airports and borders but it has many current and potential uses
for the world's armed forces, such as identifying adversaries who hide among the
civilian population, controlling access to military facilities and even in providing
medical and other services to personnel. The biometrics market is changing from
merely homeland security to an intricate part of the defence strategy.

The defence biometrics market is still dominated by the United States, which has
displayed the greatest urgency to use the technology following the September 11,

investing in the technology. The use of biometrics for military applications
continues to grow throughout the forecast period 2008-2018.

concerning whether the technology is mature enough for widespread military
application and lingering concerns over privacy. However, those apparent limitations

of identifying both friendly forces and adversaries
