Securiport partners with University of Notre Dame in biometrics and data analytics research for border security

Securiport’s Global Innovation Cell has entered a multi-year academic research agreement with the University of Notre Dame to research next generation technology to support biometric and data analytics efforts to identify and fend off border security threats such as human and drug trafficking, money laundering, fraud identity and transnational crime, the company announced.

The goal is to research and integrate innovative technology with Securiport’s proprietary Civil Aviation & Immigration Security Services (CAISS) systems.

“Securiport has been active in the field for the last 20 years and our technology has evolved significantly to keep up with the global threat landscape, changes in technology and client needs,” said Securiport’s Director of Innovation, Juan Manuel Segura. “We are now looking at what is next and how to combine our industry knowledge with science and academic research to develop technology that will disrupt the sector.”

According to Securiport’s Chief Software Architect, Nate Carpenter, Notre Dame was chosen for its portfolio of top researchers in strategic fields Securiport was interested in investing in.

The head of the research team at Notre Dame is Patrick Flynn, the Duda Family Professor of Engineering and Chair of Computer Science and Engineering. Flynn says the project will encourage “graduate student trainees, faculty, and research staff to develop and disseminate novel databases and computational techniques for challenging scientific problems that have important real-world applications.”

“We know that research often creates unexpected results – so we are building our technology in a way that’s ready to incorporate any findings,” said Robert Bergstrom, technical lead for the analytics products team at Securiport. “By giving guidance to the researchers we will be able to quicken the life cycle from the lab bench to the product.”

Securiport recently announced a deal with Central African Republic to deliver its Civil Aviation and Immigration Security Services (CAISS) while it has also completed transfer of its border security services to the government of Equatorial Guinea.
