Ikena Forensic Use Case

Readable License Plate Leads to Suspect

Naval Criminal Investigative Services (NCIS) had surveillance video of a suspect’s vehicle passing a security camera. Although the vehicle was in clear view, the letters on the license plate were unreadable. At a training session, a NCIS analyst used Ikena Forensic to reconstruct the characters on a license plate using Ikena’s super-resolution (which combines the best information from multiple frames of video) and MotionDSP’s patented de-interlacing algorithm. Immediately, the license plate characters were visible.

With the license plate details in hand, the Navy was able to conduct a database search that led to a positive ID of the perpetrator.Explore Ikena Forensic Request Pricing
