Reston, Virginia (October 4, 2021) – IDEMIA, the world-leading biometric and identity solutions provider, including TSA PreCheck®, announced today that it has partnered with Oakland International Airport (OAK) in California to provide identity verification for departing international travelers in Terminal 1.
MFACE identifies a continuous flow of people walking through a designated area in real-time using IDEMIA’s independently proven facial recognition technology, which recently achieved best in class accuracy ratings in the latest Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This technology, paired with IDEMIA’s efficient 3D video tracking, will be used to validate travelers departing the U.S. and can be deployed as a standalone unit, desktop unit or as a ready-to-integrate OEM kit.
In August, Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) announced a biometric self-boarding pilot program in partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for which IDEMIA will manufacture the solution. Additional airport installations include Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), where IDEMIA is facilitating a facial recognition system to help U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) increase air passengers’ security and border control. The technology has been deployed in LAX’s new West Gates at Tom Bradley International Terminal with our partner, EASIER, and is a one-stop safety solution for passengers, airlines, and airports alike.
