To address OSD/DARPA's need for a biometric-based approach to automatically authenticating a user in full Military Oriented Protective Posture (MOPP) Level IV gear to a network/host, HarmonoLogic LLC proposes to develop a new Biometric-based Computer Authentication System during MOPP Scenarios (BioCOPS). BioCOPS is based on high-sensitivity, high-specificity multimodal biometrics for secure authentication. BioCOPS's synergistic and seamless fusion of human scent and heartbeat-based biometrics results in a truly 3-factor strong authentication with provable and non-repudiable identification of 100% identity. It requires no active interactions from users, enabling all-time (100% of the time) automatic authentication under MOPP scenarios. Advanced Encryption Standard encryption renders BioCOPS secure wireless communications. The fieldable, rugged, low-power, compact and lightweight BioCOPS system (< 10 mW, < 2 × 1 × 0.5 cm, < 100g) is non-intrusive and easy to use for the warfighter in MOPP Level IV gear. Due to its manufacturability and use of commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) components, the BioCOPS system is cost-effective ( < $20 for mass production). In Phase I HarmonoLogic will demonstrate the feasibility of BioCOPS technology by fabricating and testing a TRL-4 prototype. In Phase II we plan to refine the technology and fabricate an integrated TRL-5 BioCOPS prototype.
