CrossMatch Technologies, based in Palm Beach, Florida, has developed some of the high-tech devices that the U.S. military uses out in the field. One of them includes SEEK, which can capture fingerprints, facial images, or iris images, allowing operatives to determine the identities of captured or killed combatants without having to wait for a DNA test.

According to a senior defense department official, the Navy SEALs likely used this device after storming bin Laden's compound.
