Cogent Systems, Inc. has ported its advanced Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) system to the Sun Solaris Operating Environment. AFIS, designed for U.S. and International government organizations and law enforcement agencies, incorporates advanced fingerprint matching technologies including palm print, live scan and other mobile and remote standard components.

AFIS, which has been proven to be one of the most accurate and sophisticated in the industry, coupled with Solaris, will equip government law enforcement agencies with the capabilities necessary to streamline their criminal justice operations.
