Dubai’s Naturalisation and Residency Administration has announced the implementation of four surveillance units outfitted with face recognition technology to be installed at the Dubai International Airport, according to a Business 24-7 article.
The new system will be integrated into the United Arab Emirates Community Protection Face Recognition System and will use scanned data of travelers to apprehend wanted criminals and illegal entrants in to the country. Additionally, the new system will be used in conjunction with the existing iris scanning system that serves the same purpose.
The plan is to extend the same system being implemented at the Dubai airport into other emirates covering many different important ports of entry: Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain, Ajman, Dubai (including additional ports outside of the airport), Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
The cameras for the new facial recognition operate in real-time image capture allowing the system to instantly locate key facial characteristics on a moving person.
