IDEMIA National Security Solutions Demonstrates End-to-End, Frictionless Biometric Access Control At Redstone Arsenal

IDEMIA’s ID2Access solution offers secure access, enhanced visitor experience, and world-class biometric technology for installation entry and exit 

Reston, Virginia. November 16, 2023 – IDEMIA National Security Solutions (NSS), a subsidiary of IDEMIA, the world’s leading biometric and identity solutions provider, provided a demonstration of its innovative biometric access control technology, ID2Access, to key U.S. Army and U.S. Department of Defense stakeholders on November 15 at Redstone Arsenal. The system is deployed at Redstone Arsenal, a massive 38,400-acre site Huntsville, Alabama that serves as the primary training and testing center for the U.S. Army’s missile and rocket programs. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) selected IDEMIA to deliver a frictionless next-generation access control, increase force protection, promote security, and improve the quality of life for Redstone Arsenal personnel, visitors, and Huntsville residents.  

The pilot project is demonstrating application of biometric technologies across the full process of accessing an installation, starting with testing remote enrollment capabilities, which allow visitors to validate their identities before arriving at the installation, potentially bypassing the Visitor Control Center. Then there is the testing of the expansion of the facial recognition gate access for vehicles with multiple occupants, beyond just identifying the driver, as well as leveraging the same enrollment to provide facility access using facial recognition and contactless fingerprint capabilities.

Key U.S. Army and U.S. Department of Defense stakeholders attended IDEMIA NSS’ demo of its innovative biometric access control technology on November 15, 2023 at Redstone Arsenal:

IDEMIA NSS’s ID2Access solution leverages IDEMIA’s best-in-class digital and biometric identification technologies, which have a long and successful history in systems nationwide, including operational deployments throughout the U.S. Department of Defense, Federal Government, numerous state and local agencies, and 180 countries across the globe. Redstone Arsenal will benefit from improved safety and security, as well as efficiency at access control points. Redstone gate operators will have insight into the comings and goings of people on the base in real time. Redstone personnel and civilians will find a smoother visitor enrollment process when entering and leaving the base.

“Depending on the time of day, visitors can spend an hour or hour and half getting processed at the Visitor Center. Our remote enrollment technology can enable identities to be validated remotely and greatly reduce those lines. We are also demonstrating the capability of validating not only the driver of the vehicle, but everyone in the vehicle as they enter an access control point for the installation.”

“The deployment of ID2Access demonstrates that our approach to access control and identity authentication provides the protection, efficiency, and installation situational awareness, where it is needed most. IDEMIA NSS is eager to show the value that ID2Access brings and work with our partners to deliver a best-in-class identify verification and access system for securing entry, exit, and movement within the garrison that can reduce the hassle of traffic and delays at Redstone Arsenal.”

“ID2Access has use cases for operational deployment at continental United States (CONUS) and Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS) military and other sensitive installations. It can also empower any organization across any industry looking to expedite access for residents, employees, contractors, and visitors through a streamlined system that protects personnel and assets appropriately, while enabling flexibility of movement on and off the installation.”
