Idemia NSS advances in Base of the Future AFWERX challenges with biometric identity checks

Idemia National Security Solutions (NSS) is providing biometric technology as one of the 92 finalists in the Base of the Future AFWERX Challenges run by the U.S. Air Force and the Department of Defense, the company announced on LinkedIn. Biometrics companies Secure Planet and Leidos are also among the teams moving forward.

The Installation of the Future leverages data to create a seamless and secure environment based on predictive and intelligent security. It analyzes data points that are representative for an individual to build authoritative and derived credentials to grant access.

The system screens body temperature, it collects biometrics while checking immunity passports, it reads license plates and verifies identity documents. The Installation of the Future uses the data points to understand who the user is, to then enable frictionless access for those authorized.

The winning pitch team consists of B. Scott Swann, PMP, Christopher Centamore, An (Mike) Tran, Ph.D., Christian Schnedler, Jason Hicks and J. Blake Moore. A detailed video presentation of the NSS Installation of the Future is available on YouTube.

Following the call for applications in spring, U.S. Air Force (USAF) and Department of Defense (DoD) experts evaluated over 1,500 submissions in challenges related to Base Security, Installation Resilience, Leveraging Technology for Operational Effectiveness, Reverse Engineering, Culture of Innovation, and Airman and Family Wellbeing.

As many as 374 applications to recondition Tyndall Air Force Base into the Base of the Future were on display during a three-day virtual exhibit. The companies are from both public and private sectors, and their solutions include base security technology, VR training modules, virtual assistants and apps for wellness and leadership development.

In June, Idemia NSS partnered with B&A to deliver biometrics to U.S. federal agencies in the criminal justice system.
