We had a demo on it at our last Round Table. Very impressive. They are
only testing the hardware and software right now, so all information will
be ditched. Even if it does work now, as I understand it the FBI is not
going to the electronic fingerprinting for another 2 years. That's how
cutting edge of technology this is. But then again That's like having a
TV station and nobody owns a TV. Where do you send it too? And how long
until the FBI has the data base up to date?
When it's in place , I can see the advantage in time and money saving.
And I don't think were the only organization that will want to use it.
