AOptix Technologies to Improve Airport Security with Biometric Identity Solution from IATA

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with a biometric identity system developer, AOptix Technologies.

AOptix InSight 2 Meter

AOptic will join the Security Forum and the Passenger Experience Management Group to determine the role of biometrics in IATA’s initiatives that include International Traveler Scheme and Checkpoint of the Future.

The “at-a-distance” iris recognition identification systems developed by AOptix are extremely accurate and easy-to-use. The rapid identification system developer will apply their expertise and detection technologies to address air transportation challenges such as intrusive traveler searches, complete automation of air travel process and traveler wait times.

The Director, Marketing at AOptix, Joseph Pritikin stated that the opportunity to work in tandem with IATA will introduce biometric technologies to airports around the globe and expedite the process of identity check and improve the passenger experience as well. Pritikin added that by developing biometric identification systems which are non-invasive, passenger authentication can be completed without any hassles.

The potential technologies were demonstrated by AOptix though an iris recognition e-Gate system at Canada’s Future Travel Experience held recently. After attendees completed a biometric enrollment on the InSight 2 meter iris recognition system, identity validation began with the placing of the boarding pass on the reader and matching the iris on their ticket by glancing at another InSight system. Since the process only takes a split second, the InSight eGate system can dramatically increase checkpoint security as well as improve the experience for the passenger.
