Collins Aerospace Systems’ SelfPass™ biometric solution has been selected by McCarran International Airport. The solution, which is set to be installed at all of McCarran’s international gates, allows passengers to step up to the camera for a facial scan to validate their identity against the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Traveller Verification Service, which retrieves their boarding details, and they are then allowed to board the aircraft through the auto-boarding gate.
SelfPass is already live with one airline following a trial throughout the summer. Wider deployment of SelfPass is set to commence in November with the addition of a second airline. In all, 19 airlines will have the SelfPass solution operational when the installation is complete.
