| Dear recipient,
As a previous participant in our biometric studies at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) in Laurel, Maryland, we are writing today to notify you of an additional research study opportunity. This opportunity is being offered to you prior to being offered to the general public as our way of saying thank you for helping with our previous research efforts!
The objective of this study is to compare newly developed biometric systems to the most commonly used, commercially available systems. Specifically, the study will evaluate how effectively these systems can detect tactics designed to deceive the systems. Advanced biometric technologies that detect these deceptions effectively can help protect personal information and enhance our national security.
You may be eligible to participate if you are:
Participants will be compensated $125 after completing the full test session. Study participation is by appointment only.
- A U.S. citizen, between the ages of 18 and 80 able to provide proof of citizenship in the form of a valid government-issued ID, such as a state driver’s license, birth certificate, or passport
- Willing and able to provide written informed consent
- Available to attend a test appointment lasting approximately 2-1/2 hours at the JHU test facility in Columbia, Maryland, on a weekday between November 4 and November 15, 2019
