To date, the impact of tactical biometric systems has been limited by designs driven by subsystem performance metrics and little consideration for the operational environment in which they are deployed. The design of these systems may be significantly improved by the application of systems engineering practices that consider these and other factors. This study discusses limitations of the current system design approach and proposes a methodology to improve designs. These improvements in design have the potential to dramatically increase the effectiveness and acceptance of biometric technologies in operational environments.
