Idemia Tests Biometric Access Control System at US Army Installation

Idemia’s national security solutions business recently demonstrated its ID2Access biometric access control technology to U.S. Army and Department of Defense stakeholders at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama.

The Army Corps of Engineers’ Engineer Research and Development Center aims to use ID2Access to deliver frictionless access control and enhance security and quality of life at the garrison, SourceSecurity reported.

If fully implemented, the technology could allow Redstone Arsenal residents, employees and visitors to validate their identities remotely instead of passing through the Visitor Control Centre.

Lafe Hutcheson, senior program director at Idemia NSS, said garrison visitors can spend up to an hour and a half being processed at the Visitor Center.

According to Idemia NSS CEO Patrick Clancey, a 4×24 member, ID2Access’ deployment proves that his company’s security approach improves facilities’ protection, efficiency and situational awareness.

Evan Bays, the company’s vice president of engineering and research and development, said ID2Access has use cases in sensitive installations within and outside the continental United States. He added that any organization, regardless of industry, can use it to streamline access and enable flexible movement in a given facility.
