Agree wholeheartedly - we need to be able to take advantage of these new opportunities to leverage commercial technologies.

re: Military Needs Better Battleground Biometrics
I can see how useful biometric information would be when indigenous and U.S. forces are in close proximity. In ambiguous situations, however, the information needed may still be hard to get, such as walking down a crowded street off base or mixing in a farmer's market. Excuse me, sir, may I scan your retina? might not cut it.

re: Military Needs Better Battleground Biometrics
Biometrics are increasingly a part of homeland security and law enforcement. I see its utility at forward bases where the military may e co-deployed with foreign forces. biometric video facial recognition would also come in handy while protecting checkpoints as a safer stand off distance.

Yes, in the DoD you don't want to make it that easy for someone to hack into your system or get access to an area they shouldnt have. Maybe have 2 forms of biometric security. Scan your eyes and a finger print? Throw voice in there as well.

I have heard of a technolgy that uses your gait to identify you. It's called gait recognition. Evidently everyone has a unique one.

I'm sure many in the military will welcome the day when we can move beyond Common Access Card and PIN system for accessing DoD systems.
