Iridian Supplies Iris-Recognition Technology for Amsterdam Airport

MOORESTOWN, N.J., and HAARLEM, Netherlands

Iridian Technologies and Joh. Enschede Security Solutions, a company active in the printing industry in Europe since 1703, have delivered an automated border crossing system (ABC system) for Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. The system is based on a combination of iris-recognition and smart card technology.

The ABC system is considered a highly secure method of border control that speeds the way for travelers and is unique in the Netherlands. The system’s use will encompass both border control and authorized staff access to restricted areas. All restricted areas are expected to use iris recognition for access by the middle of 2002. The system is already operational.

System participants will receive a secure smart card containing a unique IrisCode and personal information that will be compatible with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.
