Intelligence Solutions



In order to stay at the forefront of intelligence capabilities, the federal government uses Panasonic Toughbook® mobile computers. Toughbook computers are extremely durable and reliable, making them cost effective to own, maintain and operate. Furthermore, they are highly configurable and offer many features for the intelligence community, such as daylight-readable screens, integrated GPS, mobile broadband and fingerprint readers. These qualities make Toughbook computers ideal tools for agencies and departments looking to solidify their intelligence operations.


During military operations, the U.S. Army needs to record biometric information on detainees and other persons of interest for identification and tracking purposes. Biometric Automated Toolset (BAT) is a portable system composed of mobile computers and supporting devices that capture a person's features, such as facial details and iris identification. BAT also incorporates an exceptionally accurate fingerprint capture and identification engine. The BAT program needs a rugged mobile computer solution that provides access to their biometrics database, even under the harsh conditions commonly encountered during military operations.

BAT program administrators use Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers because of their ability to meet strict standards for ruggedness and for their reliability. Furthermore, Panasonic partners with leading biometric technologies companies to provide BAT program administrators a fully mobile solution. The solution provides access to criminal background checks through the FBI's Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) and BAT's own database. BAT program administrators also appreciate the low total lifecycle cost that stems from the durability and higher uptimes offered by Toughbook computers.
