Human Recognition Systems secures new contracts for London Olympic Park, Athletes Village

January 9, 2013 - 

Following the successful deployment of Human Recognition Systems’ (HRS) award-winning MSite solution during the London 2012 Olympic Park construction phase, the company has secured contracts to deliver its biometric access control and workforce management solution for the duration of the Olympic Park and Athletes Village Legacy Projects.

MSite systems were installed across the entire 17 km outer perimeter of the Olympic Park and Athletes Village during the construction phase for the 2012 games, and are now back safeguarding the Park during its newest transformation.

The MSite product is a workforce management and access control solution based on fingerprint and palmprint biometrics. HRS offers a range of multimodal biometric solutions, including iris, face, hand, vein, finger biometrics, human behaviour analysis and RFID technology.

“Securing the contracts to protect the transformation of the Olympic Park and Athletes Village with MSite is testament to the success of MSite during the previous three years on the park and demonstrates the strong relationships that we enjoy with our existing customers. Furthermore this clearly validates the capabilities of the MSite system in securing large and complex construction projects,” Nick Wilkinson, Construction Business Unit Manager of Human Recognition Systems said.

“It is with immense pride that Human Recognition Systems will have been present from as far back as 2009 protecting the perimeter and workforce safety on the largest construction project undertaken in Europe.”
As reported previously in, Human Recognition Systems earned a number of industry awards in 2012. The most recent is a “Best Innovator” award from the Airport Operators Association.
