Vision-Box®, has been awarded the contract and is currently deploying 64 multimodal eGates, (all equipped with face, iris and fingerprint biometric readers), to be installed at all terminals of the Hamad International Airport and to be integrated into the advanced Identity Management infrastructure of the Ministry of the Interior of the State of Qatar.
The Hamad International Airport aims to be a landmark Airport for both the Middle-East region and the rest of the world and a cornerstone for the economic development of Qatar. It will be equipped with Vision-Box® vb i-match® 5 eGates and operated by the Vision-Box® front-end Border-Control application, vb Inspector®.
Vision-Box® was awarded the contract after an international tendering process. The multimodal eGate (face, iris and fingerprint biometric validation), will ensure a speedy passage time with 100% accuracy, offering state of the art automated border control to several different traveler profiles, while making sure that the border is secure and that the passenger has a pleasant experience.
The ergonomic, intuitive and slim design of the eGates efficiently blends in with the architectural design of the airport, its materials and colour codes.
Jean-François Lennon, Director of International Business Development at Vision-Box® S.A., emphasizes that this contract represents the largest deployment of multimodal ABC eGates in the region, at a single site. Vision-Box® feels honoured to be part of this world premiere project. “The Middle-East is a market that continues to show enormous potential, where we have invested for some years now and we look forward to further contribute to the various on-going Identity Management programs, as well as supporting the different GCC initiatives in similar projects, by continuously investing in local resources”.
