Recognition with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Select Dulles
International Airport (IAD) Flights
Emirates Airline flights will help expedite boarding experience while providing
biometrics-based exit verification.
NEC Corporation of America (NEC) today announced a pilot to test NEC’s
commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) NeoFace Express device and cloud-based NeoFace
matching as key facial recognition components of a frictionless biometric exit
process in Dulles International Airport.
Started earlier this month on flights from
Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., to Dubai, United Arab
Emirates (UAE), at a gate operated by Emirates Airlines, passengers will simply
step up to a NeoFace Express device which captures the photo for matching.
The Dulles International pilot, which follows an
earlier Atlanta Hartsfield pilot, is one of several CBP pilots to implement the
federal government’s mandated Biometric Exit Program to verify the identity of
travelers leaving the United States.
“NEC is pleased to have participated in the
Dulles and Atlanta pilots with CBP and we are glad that our technology can
potentially be used to help achieve CBP’s greater missions,” said Raffie
Beroukhim, Senior Vice President, NEC Corporation of America, Advanced Recognition
