NEC tests tech at Dulles International Airport


NEC Corporation and NEC Corporation of America (NEC) have announced a pilot to test NEC’s commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) NeoFace Express device and cloud-based NeoFace matching as key facial recognition components of a frictionless biometric exit process in Dulles International Airport in the US.

During the pilot, passengers travelling from Dulles Airport, Washington DC, to Dubai, step up to a NeoFace Express device at a gate operated by Emirates Airlines, which captures the photo for matching.

The pilot, which follows an earlier trial at Atlanta Hartsfield, is one of several customs and border protection (CBP) pilots to implement the federal government’s mandated Biometric Exit Program to verify the identity of travellers leaving the US.

“NEC is pleased to have participated in the Dulles and Atlanta pilots with CBP and we are glad that our technology can potentially be used to help achieve CBP’s greater missions,” says Raffie Beroukhim, senior vice president, NEC Corporation of America, Advanced Recognition Systems Division.
