Biometrics: the future of air travel
Biometrics acts to identify humans by their characteristics or traits.

Current application:

Airport IT Trends Survey indicates 23% of airports use biometric identification
at border controls
ICAO of biometric passports (e-passports) - more than 80 countries issue e-passports
Triple M & D AirSafe Security

increase allover security
increasing boarder efficiency
boarding efficiency
protect against terrorist threats
insure passenger safety
Security Plan:
Passenger efficiency:

- Finger and facial recognition scanner at boarding check points using e-passports

Madeline Durdin Airport

We found that:

- 98% success rate
- 2% dislike rate

A successful capture of a flee attempted

Madeline Durdin Airport has recommended our system
Finger Scanner and Facial Recognition Software
ICAO of biometric passports (e-passports) - With more than 80 countries issuing e-passports, including the US and member countries of the EU

Each person will be issued an e-passport

Finger scanner and facial recognition software
- to identity passengers
- increase boarding efficiency
The Science behind the Technology:
Fingerprints are a unique marker for a person

Methods used:
- optical scanning
- capacitance scanning

Both act to generate an image of the ridges and valleys that make up a fingerprint

Iris Identification on the Move
Iris Scanner for Airport Grounds
Retina Scanner before Entering Cockpit
Security Measures:

- Iris scanner from distance
on ground level and terminal

- Retina scanner before
entering cockpit
Patterns and features of the colorful connective tissue inside the eye vary from person to person

Uses camera technology with subtle infrared illumination to acquire images of the detail-rich, intricate structures of the iris.
The Science behind the Technology
- Insure that only authorized personal are on airport grounds near airplanes

- Each employe will be issues an e-ID (as with e-passports)

- Same technology used for terminal security

The Science behind the Technology

Depending on the type of scan, different positions and background lighting can all effect the verification process.

Fingerprint can be duplicated by: A 3-D thumbprint imprinted on ballistics
- This is hard to accomplish

- Used to identify suspicious persons
or persons of interest

- Product allow people to simply glance and go

- Can be hidden in high tragic areas
- Positioned before entering cockpit

- Protect the cockpit

- Allow only authorized personal to enter cockpit
- The configuration of retinal blood vessels is unique to each individual and cannot be altered

- Retinal scan is performed by casting an unperceived beam of low-energy infrared light into a person’s eye

- The pattern of variations is converted to computer code and stored in a database

- “You can’t change the back of your eye so it definitely is a proof positive method of identification.” - Dr. Proctor.
- People may not want to disclose biometric identity before having to fly

- Biometric data is recorded in a central database, making privacy concerns higher

- Face image data used for surveillance purposes and fingerprint data checked against forensic databases.
