Themis ™ is a vendor-agnostic, cloud-ready, multi-modal biometrics examination workstation. It is designed primarily to enhance examiner performance through an easy-to-use interface focused on keeping examiners looking at biometrics instead of navigating the system.
Themis is built to be a vendor-agnostic system to provide customers better flexibility in the selection of one or more search algorithms. Competing products claim to be vendor-agnostic as well, but only work through heroic efforts on the part of the system integrator because these products are designed to be part of a total end-to-end solution. Athena does not sell matching algorithms and has no desire to tie Themis to a single matching vendor. This frees system integrators into choosing one or more matching algorithms that best fit the mission at hand. It also enables system integrators to change matching algorithms at will, without needing to retrain examination teams on new tools. Themis is fully compliant with ANSI NIST ITL 2011 to support easy integration into larger systems.
Themis is unique in that it is cloud-ready and can be deployed in cloud-native, hybrid-cloud, or traditional IT infrastructure environments. It is accessed through any HTML5 compatible browser or mobile device. Competing products are thick clients, requiring complex management, installation and troubleshooting procedures.
Another unique feature of Themis is that it is multi-modal. Examiners can see all biometrics for probe/candidate pairs side-by-side, allowing them to easily identify data quality issues such as cross-linked identities. Themis will allow users to flag these data quality issues for reprocessing in the search system as needed.
