Human Recognition Systems, a developer of biometric solutions, has partnered with Thales to develop technology for the UK’s INSTINCT-Technology Demonstrator 2 (TD2) Airport Security Program. The INSTINCT-TD2 program is conceived in hopes of developing, trialing and showcasing the next step in airport security technology solutions by having the government work closely with private industry.
Some of the others involved in the program are members of academia and a cross-government team anchored in the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism in the UK’s Home Office. These people in conjunction with select officials from Human Recognition Systems and Thales will make up a review board that will look at proposals from academic institutions and companies on how their technology could be applied to airport technology. Human Recognition Systems will take the lead on piloting any selected technology.
