Biometrics White Paper Arrival

Rockwell Collins’ ARINC Airports is pleased to announce the arrival of a white paper entitled: White Paper: Assessment of 1-to-Many Matching in the Airport Departure Process. The study discusses the two different approaches to the deployment of biometrics, and how the application fits into the airport departure process.

With significant growth in the airline industry, from higher capacity aircraft to increasing passenger numbers, airport operators are looking to evaluate the technologies and applications that can increase efficiency in passenger processing, while maintaining compliance and critical security measures.

 

Biometrics use in the airport environment to increase efficiency and security

The use of biometric facial recognition technology as a part of the passenger screening process is one area that is creating enhanced interest. Across the industry, facial recognition is being deployed as a valuable application for airports, and is already reducing airport waiting times, increasing security and giving operational agility to the entire system of passenger processing, which in turn is increasing and improving passenger experience.

As airports look to the future, scalable, flexible solutions are required to address increasing pressures, mandatory requirements and security measures. The use of biometrics is being universally-recognised as the key to providing a better experience for the passenger, while allowing operators to achieve the desired scalability without necessarily making huge investments into improving infrastructure.

 

Reviewing approaches to the deployment of biometrics

The white paper discussed the two main approaches to the deployment of biometric passenger processing applications for the airport departure process:

 

1-to-1 matching (verification)

A single enrolment is used to compare to a live image of the passenger.

This test uses the question ‘Is this the same person that was seen before?

Comparison of the image is used to determine if the passenger’s live image is accurate when compared to the enrolment image. This system uses a unique token, such as a Bar Coded Boarding Pass (BCBP) or a passport document.

 

1-to-Many matching (identification)

An individual is compared to a gallery of other people who have been previously enrolled.

This test uses the question ‘Have I seen this person before?

This system requires no token, and the search for the individual will return a Green result if there is a single enrolment, an Amber result if there is an uncertain response (if there may be more than one match) and a Red result is returned if there is no match found.
