Unisys says it will integrate biometric solutions from its partners as it rolls out a new passenger security system designed to ease security-checkpoint lines and flight delays.
The air-passenger security system would cover electronic boarding passes, boarding the plane, immigration checkpoints and baggage collection, the company says.
The company believes that many passengers are willing to give up a degree of privacy in return for enhanced boarding procedures and more security.
After travelers submit biometric information to relevant authorities, Unisys would use facial recognition, fingerprint scans and iris recognition technologies to verify identities at various checkpoints, the company says.
Unisys says the new system would be based on its Library of eID Artifacts software framework, with its software building blocks to ease development time, and it would integrate biometric and identity management solutions from partners.
Unisys security network clients include airports in Los Angeles, Beijing, Delhi and Madrid/Barcelona.
