Sagem SA at Africa Airport 2005

December 2004 News

In complying with the standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), biometrics solutions developer Sagem will showcase its successes in airports around the world at the Africa Airport 2005 Conference to be held from 22 to 25 February in the Sandton Convention Centre.

A few of these successes include installations in the Netherlands, the UK, Australia and France.

In the Netherlands, Sagem has been selected to contribute to the development of the first biometric passports and national ID cards integrating two biometrics.

The company has also been selected to provide an iris biometrics solution for an immigration entry system in the UK. The solution called Iris Recognition Immigration System (IRIS) will be deployed at terminals in five major airports: Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham and Stansted.

The Australian project involves advancing the development of the Australian Customs' biometric face recognition system. Based on face recognition biometric technology, the SmartGate trial will provide simple and secure processing of selected flight crews and passengers at a number of Australian airports.

In addition, Sagem has been selected by Aéroports De Paris (ADP), as the Prime Contractor for the biometric identity control of the personnel entitled to access the apron security areas.
