NEC tests facial recognition on select Emirates airline flights
NEC and NEC of America (NEC) 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 of America, Advanced Recognition Systems Division.
