Next Generation Identification (NGI) is a project of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to expand the capabilities of the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS), which is currently used by law enforcement to identify subjects by their fingerprints and to look up their criminal history.

The NGI system will be a more modular system (allowing easy expandability). It will also have more advanced lookup capabilities, incorporating palm print, iris, and facial identification. The FBI was the ones to implement this system. The FBI first used this system in February 2011.

The development of the project is being led by Lockheed Martin who are teamed up with a number of technology companies.

Next Generation Identification offers services that provide a platform for multimodal functionality that will continue to evolve with new technologies and user requirements.
