Securiport: Biometric Scanning is Gold Standard in Airport Security
Date:9/4/2012

WASHINGTON, Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Airports around the world are faced with two daunting tasks—maintaining rigorous levels of security and delaying passengers as little as possible. In the years following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, airport security has been heightened, not only in the U.S. but around the world. Most officials and passengers alike agree that security is an important concern, yet many security measures end up detaining passengers, or else prove to be overly invasive. As airports seek methods for balancing these two concerns, many of them are turning to the burgeoning field of biometric scanning. Most recently, biometric scanning has been the subject of experimentation in a pair of prominent Japanese airports—prompting the attention of Securiport, a company that provides state of the art immigration control systems.

Biometric scanning refers to the identification of passengers on the basis of behavioral or physiological characteristics. Examples range from retina scanners to handprint scanners. Two major Japanese airports have begun a trial, experimenting with biometric scanning systems and seeking to determine whether this methodology might provide an accurate and efficient way of spotting potential security risks, all while expediting immigration control processes.

Securiport is a company that is passionate about the advantages offered by biometric scanning technology. Securiport's Integrated Immigration Control System (IICS) is a standard-setting immigration system, making use of advanced biometric ultrasonic fingerprint scanners. The company believes this technology to be both non-invasive and peerlessly accurate. Securiport has responded to the Japanese trials with a new statement to the press.

"Immigration control systems are being put to the test with the increasing amount of people flying around the world," says the Securiport press statement. "To keep up with passenger demand these systems have to be fast and efficient. In other words, processing times per passenger have to be reduced without compromising security."

Securiport goes on to note that ultrasonic fingerprint scanning technology is singularly effective in meeting these ambitious goals. "Biometric ultrasonic technology is the way to go," the company's statement affirms. "It's 99.9 percent accurate, much faster than conventional optical scanning devices, and better suited for immigration control systems. Our Integrated Immigration Control System provides exactly that—a fast, dependable, non-intrusive system, capable of dealing with increases in demand as efficiently as possible."

The purpose of the Japanese trials is to determine how accurate and effective biometric scanners can be. In the trial, passengers who agree to participate will have their photos taken and their fingerprints scanned. This information will then be compared against the biometric data stored in their passports.

The Japanese study's conclusions and ultimate recommendations will be published by the end of March, 2013.
