Higgins & Associates, International (HAI) is a small-by-design biometric consultancy based in Washington, DC. HAI uses the Service Mark Higgins-Biometrics.
Over the past 15 years we have supported
many government agencies at the federal (US, Canada, and the UK), state, as well as county level. In addition we have actively participated
in NIST standards bodies and lectured at numerous conferences and universities.
We help government agencies successfully acquire the most appropriate biometric systems with a focus on large-scale biometric and forensic identity systems as well as related identity management systems. These activities have taken us to Afghanistan, Canada, Iraq, the United Kingdom, and the United States on various contracts.
Our experiences are in all life-cycle phases of AFIS, ABIS, livescan fingerprint and other biometric collection kit (fixed, portable, and mobile) acquisitions.
Mr. Higgins is a founding member of the Scientific Working Group for Forensic and Investigative Speaker Recognition (SWG-Speaker) as well as a member of two International Association for Identification (IAI) Committees / Subcommittees.
