Biometrics technology provider AOptix Technologies has formed a strategic partnership with Emaratech, a provider of smart and electronic border control gates at UAE airports, to provide iris and face recognition systems for the aviation industry.

AOptix's InSight Duo, the combined face-iris recognition and automated Iris e-Gate system, requires only the swipe of a boarding pass and a brief glance at the InSight system to securely authenticate a traveller's identity within seconds.

"We are impressed with the AOptix solution for next-generation iris recognition for the UAE and the region," said Thani Alzaffin, Emaratech director-general.

The system combines the InSight iris recognition system with an optical barrier and barcode reader.

The InSight Duo is well suited for high-throughput immigration and aviation security applications requiring the performance and versatility of both biometrics.
