Selection of Sagem Sécurité iris identification system by Oman and Jordan
March 18th, 2008
Sagem Sécurité (SAFRAN Group) announced today that it will supply to Oman and Jordan identification systems based on iris recognition. The systems will be used for ID checks at borders.
These systems will be deployed at more than 100 sites, mainly at border crossing stations and airports. Border police in both countries will have an extremely fast and reliable system to check the identity of people entering their territories, calling on databases with previous records of people’s irises. Sagem Sécurité’s system can check in virtually real time.
Sagem Sécurité is the first company to be selected in the Gulf area for the supply of identification systems based on iris recognition. It already provides automated fingerprint identification systems to other countries in this part of the world.
This major business win for Sagem Sécurité’s iris recognition technology follows the IRIS* project deployed in the United Kingdom for the automated control of travellers. It further confirms Sagem Sécurité’s world leading position in biometric ID solutions, as well as its expertise in multibiometric technologies and ability to provide turnkey identification solutions.
