Record number of iris pattern recognitions achieved in UAE

IrisGuard : 10 November, 2008  (Application Story)
Biometric iris recognition system deployment at UAE border control points reaches record number of database comparison transactions at 20 trillion in 7 years
IrisGuard has broken a new ground record with its award winning Iris Expellee Tracking System (IETS) based on the resilient Iris Farm Architecture (IFA) that has been in operation since 2001 in the United Arab Emirates. The solution focuses on border security by inhibiting the illegal entry of persons into the UAE.

The accomplished solution has to-date executed over 20 trillion iris cross comparisons, the industry's first and true Biometric Landmark in the history of iris recognition technology.

In live operations, over 20 million people have been inspected and screened; each presented passengers iris is compared exhaustively against all templates in the 1.6 million watch-list database in less than 2 seconds. This accounts for an incredible 9 billion cross comparisons daily on approximately 20,000 token-less entry/exit passengers in an exhaustive One to Many(1:n) comparison. To date, over 300,000 foreigners (deportees) have been apprehended trying to re-enter the UAE often carrying false travel documents.

Senior government sources close to the system say the proficient tracking system defers a wide range of emerging threats to national security, well beyond traditional immigration threats.

The award winning IETS Homeland security solution focuses on border security by inhibiting the illegal entry of persons into the UAE. IrisGuard IETS solution is based on the Iris Farm Architecture which has been in continuous operations (24x7x52) for over 2,500 days in the UAE when the UAE first launched the world's first iris national border-crossing security initiative. Today all of the UAE's Land, Air and Sea ports of entry are equipped with IrisGuard systems. All foreign nationals who possess a visa to enter the UAE are processed through IrisGuard IG-H100 iris cameras installed at all primary and auxiliary immigration inspection points, such as Abu Dhabi and Dubai International Airports to name a few.

IrisGuard uses the worlds most efficient search techniques, optimization, fast cache, relational in-memory database technology that accelerates iris comparisons with built-in redundancy and sophisticated memory data structures. The IFA automatically inserts new iris enrolled records simultaneously while searching takes place without interruption. It is specifically designed to handle real-time iris deployments where mission-critical timely response is vital.

"No other biometric technology even comes close to this outstanding online performance of IrisGuards complex information systems. The IFA expansion is one facet of the UAE's national efforts in combating illegal immigration. The faultless solution is the most accurate, resilient, and effective tool in the UAE's arsenal in apprehending and prosecuting illegal aliens that violate the UAE immigration laws thus dynamically reducing the threat level in the country", commented Mr Imad Kh Malhas CEO IrisGuard.

IrisGuard solutions assure a decisive information advantage for Homeland Security in preempting, disrupting and defeating illegal immigration and protecting the UAE national interests.
