 Project objective

Time is crucial in criminal investigations! A fast identification of suspects increases the chance of solving a case and helps preventing further crimes. Fingerprints provide extremely strong physical evidence to the investigation authorities and help to identify suspects. Pieces of evidences are usually transported to forensic laboratories, dusted with a brush or prepared with aggressive and toxic chemicals, to make traces visible and capture them by photography. This takes up to 36 hours, because several time-consuming steps are necessary. Furthermore, the traces can be destroyed in the process and no further examination is possible. Besides being a substantial part in a criminal investigation, fingerprint forensics lacks new and modern methods to increase speed, quality and applicability. SCANOVIS develops disruptive, patented laboratory and handheld scanners to capture prints. Instead of chemicals, a laser is used to precisely detect traces and digitally visualise 3D data in a rapid quality-proof step, without compromising evidence. Traces are visualised non-invasively, contactless and non-contaminatively, without using any toxic chemicals. Prints can be captured in less than 60s at the crime site and distributed digitally very fast. As fighting crimes will always be an important topic and many authorities plan to modernise their equipment, the forensic tools market is predicted to show a stable, long-term growth. Initially a lab scanner is introduced into the market, in a second step a mobile scanner greatly reduces the investigation time and detects traces that go unnoticed now. It broadens the market as each police officer can use the mobile scanner. SCANOVIS anticipates a turnover of 26M€ and an additional staff of 46 employees in 2024. SCANOVIS vision is to revolutionise forensics and become the global standard tool to make the fight against crime and terrorism more efficient, more successful and hence protect freedom and security of Europe and its citizen.
