The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has offloaded its VeriScan facial recognition system to Pangiam.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
The VeriScan platform was originally developed by the airport's in-house technology department and is now in use at Dulles and Dallas-Fort Worth airports in the U.S.
Pangiam was formed in 2020 as a result of combining the Linkware and AE Industrial Partners companies - the latter being a private equity backer with interests in aviation, aerospace and other industry sectors.
VeriScan works by deploying facial recognition technology at airport gates and other passenger areas, allowing carriers and airport facilities to identify customers for boarding and check-in processes.
The technology has processed 1.3 million passengers since it debuted in 2018.
Pangiam CEO Kevin McAleenan says: "VeriScan's cost effective, easy to implement cloud application makes it accessible to all airports and airlines, and we expect to see increased adoption of this technology this year as travel resumes globally."
Carriers using the technology at the two airports include Emirates, Etihad, JetBlue, Air France, SAS, Cathay Pacific, Virgin Atlantic, United, Aer Lingus and Lufthansa.
