Iris scan

Pfc. Patrick Davis and Staff Sgt. Joshua Tyree, paratroopers with the 82nd Airborne Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, shield an Afghan’s eyes from bright sunlight as Davis scans his iris with a Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment, or HIIDE, system during an Afghan-led patrol April 29, 2012, Ghazni province, Afghanistan. By scanning his iris and taking fingerprints using the same system, the soldiers can tell if the young man is recorded as having participated in insurgent activities. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Michael J. MacLeod)
