biometricsIris ID has deployed the company“™s iris biometric technology for a Customs and Border Protection pilot intended to help identify non-U.S. citizens who pass through the U.S.-Mexico border, Planet Biometrics reported Wednesday.

Iris ID installed six kiosks equipped with iCAM D1000 iris-face capture systems at the Otay Mesa port of entry in Southern California in order to gather iris records of pedestrians, according to the report.

CBP intends for the six-month pilot to match iris and facial images collected by Border Patrol with images stored in the Department of Homeland Security“™s IDENT system and the FBI‘s multibiometric system.

“This is not like fingerprint scans that involve physically touching a reader,” said Charles Koo, president and CEO of Iris ID.

“Iris recognition is simply a digital photo using very low-power near-invisible infrared illumination.”

The company combined Vision-Box“™s technology into its biometrics system for the kiosks, Planet Biometrics reports.
