SAGEM Wins Largest Airport Biometric Security Contract in Europe

Saturday 8 November 2003 08:11 CET | News

SAGEM has been awarded a contract by Aeroports de Paris (ADP) to install its biometric identity control technology in the restricted personnel areas of Paris two largest airports, Charles de Gaulle and Orly. In partnership with OMNITECH, SAGEMs fingerprint biometric technology will be used in authenticating the identity of more than 90,000 Paris airport employees with access to secure areas of the airports. Under the terms of the contract, SAGEM is scheduled to begin installation of its biometric technology in both Paris airports before the end of 2003 and continue through the first quarter of 2004. The installed biometric technology will enforce security and increase physical access control reliability while minimizing personnel access to restricted working areas of the airport. The airport security systems are designed to leverage SAGEMs core strengths in fingerprint biometric recognition technology, data encryption and contact-less smart cards.
