NEC Corporation and Daon have been working for several months on Japan’s new multi-modal biometrically enabled border control. The system went live in November 2007 and was used to successfully process more than 10,000 travelers through Narita International Airport during the first morning of operation. Fingerprints and facial images are obtained from persons entering the country who are 16 years of age and older (except legally exempted person). Fully integrated with the NEC technology, Daon’s identity management system provides the centralized and client biometric infrastructure for the border clearance and automated system, with DaonEngine™ serving as the platform and additional Daon software being used at over 500 immigration workstations at over 34 airports and seaports.
