Biometrics and identity solutions firm Safran has released MorphoFACE, a mobile facial recognition solution.

In a statement, Safran said MorphoFace will help 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 ergonomics to enable a steady and seamless flow of users”. It adds that MorphoFACE can also be used to secure sensitive sites, ports, train stations or financial institutions.

The firm said the compact unit offers a completely non-intrusive experience for travelers. 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 a globalized world where airports and border checkpoints are vital hubs, we believe that ‘on the move' biometrics will play a key role in securing borders while reducing wait times and improving travel experience. With our offer, we are proud to contribute to make our borders safer and smarter,” said Samuel Fringant, Executive Vice President, Security Division at Safran Identity & Security.
