LOS ANGELES, Calif. Trueface, computer vision technology company, announced that AFWERX, in partnership with the Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR), has awarded the company its second contract this year for its facial recognition and weapon identification capabilities. Trueface was selected for a Phase I Air Force contract earlier this year to assess the most impactful use cases for computer vision to be used for security purposes on base.


With the award of a Phase II contract, Trueface will put that research into practice and deploy the company's computer vision technologies on a U.S. Air Force military base in 2020.

Trueface's solution will provide facial recognition, license plate recognition, and weapon detection in order to expedite the entrance process into the military base, as well as enhance overall security onsite.

Within the base, the Air Force will utilize Trueface weapon detection to enhance general security by monitoring the movement of firearms outside of designated areas and having the ability to respond faster to active shooter incidents.
