FaceFirst’s New Airport Security Face Recognition Platform Helps …

FaceFirst introduces Guardian, which uses breakthrough face recognition technology to help secure borders and airports.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2017

Facial recognition provider FaceFirst[1] today announced the launch of Guardian, a new airport security platform. Using breakthrough feature recognition capabilities, the platform identifies visitors in areas with high foot traffic and supplements the identification process for border control agents. Humans can typically recall just a few hundred faces on demand, resulting in slow customs processes, and rendering terror watch lists issued by federal and local authorities of little practical use. In comparison, Guardian compares millions of images per second, helping to identify travelers in checkpoints against a vast image database. The airport security platform[2] may also help authorities monitor the status of arriving visitors or departing passengers. FaceFirst entered the transportation security sector at Panama’s Tocumen International Airport. Panama Security Minister Jose Raul Mulino quickly declared the program a success, citing an average of 30 people per day detected with a police background or wanted by INTERPOL. The program was subsequently expanded, making it the world’s largest biometric surveillance program worldwide. Guardian identifies visitors using cameras mounted at long distances, instantly alerting airport security by email and text message as needed with critical information.

“Guardian is a huge leap forward in our ability to proactively safeguard borders and deter terrorism,” said FaceFirst CEO Peter Trepp. “The people tasked with homeland security worldwide have an incredibly difficult challenge. FaceFirst gives them the actionable intelligence they need to quickly confirm identity, expedite border crossings and prevent crime.”

Since FaceFirst’s inaugural airport deployment, the company has expanded to military bases in the U.S. and the Middle East, Fortune 500 retail locations, American law enforcement agencies and other sectors. The new platform offers significantly improved processing speed, and intelligent feature recognition from its predecessor. The product’s security features have also been enhanced.

“FaceFirst is private by design,” said Trepp. “We’ve gone to extreme lengths to ensure that biometric data is secure from both virtual and physical attacks, and the FaceFirst system is designed to prevent utilizing the platform for any type of profiling by race, age, gender or national origin.”

The company has also further automated the typically arduous task of searching through traditional surveillance video footage. The company makes it easy to search for facial matches by image or keyword, effortlessly uncovering dates, times and locations of prior visits.

LAX Airport Security Let Gun Pass in Travelers Carry-On

An off-duty police officer managed to fly out of Los Angeles International Airport with a gun in her carry-on luggage last week. Officer Noell Grant of the Santa Monica Police Department said she only realized she d accidentally brought her personal firearm along when she was about to change planes in Taipei. The gun and six bullets had made it through security at LAX undetected, a fact confirmed by the Transportation Security Administration on Thursday. Nico Melendez of the TSA was quoted by the BBC as saying that authorities determined standard procedures were not followed and a police officer did in fact pass through the [airport] checkpoint with a firearm. We ll hold those responsible appropriately accountable, he said. Grant informed local authorities in Taiwan of the blunder and has been told to stay in the country, though she hasn t been charged with anything.
