MITRE developed the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF), Spatial Frequency Response (SFR), and Image Quality of Fingerprint (IQF) freeware applications to support performance analysis of fingerprint capture devices and printers for FBI product certifications, for the FBI's Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) and the US government's Personal Identity Verification (PIV) program. Corresponding to these certifications are available spec and test procedures [5MB]. These applications support development of devices enabling high accuracy examination, matching, and identification of fingerprints and interoperability across the forensics/law enforcement community.
