Safran launches Morphoface for airport security

Paris, France

Safran Identity & Security has unveiled its new solution for seamless face acquisition and on-the-spot identity verification at Passenger Terminal Expo. Dedicated to private and public organisations, Morphoface integrates the company’s state-of-the-art face recognition technologies, ensuring a high level of accuracy.

Morphoface particularly helps airports and border checkpoints deal with the increasing number of travellers by providing a fast and highly secure biometric solution for face capture and matching in one single connected device. Based on the latest 3D video analysis technology, this solution combines reliability and ergonomic to enable a steady and seamless flow of users.

The compact unit offers a completely non-intrusive experience for travellers. It features only fixed components and can more quickly capture a wide range of sizes and profiles than conventional solutions which must mechanically adjust before acquisition. In addition, Morphoface has anti-spoofing capabilities to deliver robust, convenient identity check (against an ID document) or person identification (against a list of persons of interest).

In a globalised world where airports and border checkpoints are vital hubs, Safran believes that ‘on the move' biometrics will play a key role in securing borders while reducing wait times and improving travel experience.

Samuel Fringant, Executive Vice President, Security Division at Safran Identity & Security explains: "Morphoface is an interoperable solution which can be integrated into existing environments (e-gates, self-bag drop systems, kiosks, etc.). It is available for customers as a turnkey solution or as an embeddable kit for third parties to design their own customised solutions."
