Oman opts for Safran

12/04/17

Safran Identity & Security has been selected by the Sultanate of Oman to consolidate the country’s multiple identification systems within a single multi-biometric platform. This platform, to be operated by the Sultanate, has been launched to support both public security and the development of tourism in the country.

Safran identity & Security’s ABIS (Automated Biometric Information System) platform will enable the various solutions to communicate with each other and manage all the biometric databases (fingerprint, facial recognition, iris and DNA) within a unified system. The ABIS will provide biometric services – enrolment, identification, verification – on behalf of all national systems involved in ensuring the security of the Sultanate: civil identity, public security, border control and criminal identification.

“We are very honoured that the Sultanate of Oman has renewed its confidence in Safran Identity & Security after an intense competitive bidding to deploy this unique system in the world,” says Samuel Fringant, executive vice president, Security Division, Safran Identity & Security. “This contract allows us to consolidate our relationship with Oman and strengthen our local presence through sustained investment, especially in the area of high technologies.”
