NEC to Highlight Biometric Solutions at Aviation Industry Events

“NEC Europe executive advisor Michael O’Connell will be one of the speakers in AVSEC World Day’s Aviation Security 2030 Session, affording an opportunity to really delve into how biometric technology – and NEC’s in particular – can be used to improve security in air travel.”

NEC to Highlight Biometric Solutions at Aviation Industry EventsNEC is getting ready to extend a helping hand to the air travel industry as it continues to embrace biometric technology, with plans to attend next week’s AVSEC World Day 2018 event and the Global Airport and Passenger Symposium (GAPS) in Athens.

Both events are sponsored by the International Air Transport Association, an industry advocacy association that has been increasingly vocal in its support for biometric passenger identity technologies. So NEC will likely find a receptive audience for its biometric solutions, which are already being used prominently in the US Customs and Border Protection agency’s efforts to implement biometric passenger screening at airports in the US.

NEC will get an elevated platform at AVSEC World Day in particular, with the company being a Bronze Sponsor of the event. NEC Europe executive advisor Michael O’Connell will be one of the speakers in AVSEC World Day’s Aviation Security 2030 Session, affording an opportunity to really delve into how biometric technology – and NEC’s in particular – can be used to improve security in air travel.

At GAPS, meanwhile, NEC says it will showcase its Mobile Authenticator solution, which is based on the company’s renowned facial recognition technology and features a liveness detection capability. This, and similar biometric solutions, are likely to be hot topics at AVSEC World Day and GAPS as a range of stakeholders increasingly look to technological solutions to issues of security, passengers flows, efficiency, and more.
