Border Management

With the ubiquity of international air travel and the frequent passage of travelers and workers across massive number of land border checkpoints,  biometrics can play a key role in improving travel flow and supporting commerce while increasing security and efficiency of government resources.

As borders are highly diverse by nature, from massive airports and land borders to mobile checkpoints and remote crossings, high throughput and mobile biometric capabilities each play a vital role. Integration of multi-modal solutions, including iris, fingerprint, and face biometric modalities supports these diverse use cases, and offers the ability to transition over time from broadly used but less accurate approaches to newer and more effective technologies.

Case Study - Dubai GDRFA

  • Automated biometric immigration, with in-line enrollment and real time watchlist checks
  • 35 million users per year

Over 200 InSight Duo systems deployed at all Terminals at Dubai Airport and Al Maktoum Airport by the Dubai Government (GDRFA) and emaratech speed 35 million passengers a year through immigration.
The solution is a hybrid of Smart Gates and Smart Counters, uniquely facilitating in-line enrollment for automated immigration with iris recognition.

This approach reduces the typical immigration time for travelers from 49 minutes to less than 1 minute.
