Sagem Sécurité unveils “on the fly” ID technology at Milipol

Paris, November 19, 2009

Sagem Sécurité (Safran group) is introducing its on-the-fly facial and fingerprint recognition technologies, "Face on the Fly" and "Finger on the Fly" for the first time in France at the Milipol trade show and exhibition in Paris from November 17 to 20, 2009.

Sagem Sécurité's on-the-fly facial recognition technology, "Face on the Fly", features a new facial image acquisition process. It is based on a system of synchronized video cameras enabling the face to be reconstructed as a 3D image, regardless of how subject hold their head.

The company's "Finger on the Fly" fingerprint recognition technology, acclaimed at Biometrics 2009 in London, can capture and process the fingerprints from a moving hand in just a few seconds.

Designed to address today's pressing security requirements, these new technologies will improve security at sensitive sites involving considerable traffic, including airports, international border crossings and even stadiums. They will eventually be used as the basis of more user-friendly identification systems, involving fewer restrictions for all users.
