The French company said it will invest an undisclosed amount towards better marketing its Gen 3.0 Border & Airport platform, as well as positioning its Canberra and Sydney teams close to client operations.

Built on the company’s contactless biometric technology, the platform allows an airport or other border checkpoint to carry out facial, iris and fingerprint recognition for traveller identification.

Aimed to ensure a smooth flow of passengers, it includes a walk-through eGate where passengers are recognised and cleared by the concerned authorities.

The legitimate passengers are allowed to pass via the self-service option. In doubtful cases, officers are required to intervene with mobile applications.

The platform has already been installed in Terminals 3 and 4 of Singapore Changi Airport.

IDEMIA Asia Pacific president Tim Ferris said: “The Asia Pacific region is at the forefront of border and airport innovation and it remains a strategic growth market for IDEMIA.

“Through the expansion of our capacity in Australia, we will better support our customers in the region and continue the development of a very successful suite of products and solutions for the global markets”

In July last year, Norway’s Oslo Airport deployed IDEMIA’s facial capture solution MorphoFace for its new automated border control gates in a bid to improve its passenger experience.

The facial recognition solution is backed by IDEMIA’s MorphoWAY solution.
