Pilot project tests NEC’s NeoFace Express for biometric exit

Pilot project tests NEC’s NeoFace Express for biometric exit
 

A pilot project started earlier this month on flights from Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is testing NEC’s commercial-off-the-shelf NeoFace Express device and cloud-based NeoFace matching at a gate operated by Emirates Airlines as key facial recognition components of a frictionless biometric exit process.

The Dulles International pilot, which follows an earlier Atlanta Hartsfield pilot, is one of several CBP pilots to implement the federal government’s mandated Biometric Exit Program to verify the identity of travelers leaving the United States.

“NEC is pleased to have participated in the Dulles and Atlanta pilots with CBP and we are glad that our technology can potentially be used to help achieve CBP’s greater missions,” said Raffie Beroukhim, senior vice president, NEC Corporation of America, Advanced Recognition Systems Division.

NEC launched its NeoFace Express facial recognition solution in May.
