TYSONS CORNER, VA, March 11, 2016 — The Unisys-made (NYSE: UIS) facial and iris biometrics are being tested at the Otay Mesa border crossing in San Diego by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency until May 2016, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.
The company said Thursday the assessment aims to determine the accuracy and efficiency of the biometrics system outdoors.
CBP also will assess how accurately biometric technology performs when matching travelers’ biometrics against those in the records created when the travelers entered the United States.
“This solution can help us better track who is entering the country, why they are here, and how long they stay, “said Amy Rall, group vice president for the Department of Homeland Security practice at Unisys Federal.
CBP will assess the accuracy biometric technology to determine if the technology can be implemented at other border locations.
