Princeton Identity, a provider of biometric security systems, has completed the installation of its Access500e identity management modules at Dubai International Airport in the UAE. The solution identifies travelers within two seconds, reducing the time spent in traditional security lines.
Princeton Identity installed more than a hundred units at automated security gates throughout the airport, with plans to deploy a further 40 modules to support international flights. Dubai Airport served nearly 14.9 million international visitors in 2016, and is expected to surpass 20 million international visitors by 2020.
Mark Clifton, chief executive officer, Princeton Identity, said, “Princeton Identity and the Dubai International Airport share a goal of simplifying and speeding access to keep people and business moving, and the Access500e deployment marks a new standard in passenger security. Iris recognition is [the]most reliable form of biometric identification, and the Access500e turns what used to be a slow process for travelers into a convenient, quick and more secure experience.”
Access500e is a high-quality face and iris biometric capture device designed for integration into a variety of solutions. At Dubai Airport, it is integrated with the new smart gates, commonly referred to as the ‘Eyen’ gate system. Princeton Identity partnered with tech developer Emaratech to deploy the Access500e systems at the airport.
“Dubai Airport has always set a high bar in terms of innovative and future-forward experiences and we applaud the leadership team’s decision to tap the power of iris recognition to further enhance both traveler satisfaction and security,” added Clifton.
