everis Aerospace, Defense, and Security has supplied and installed 220 new and state-of-the-art automated border control systems in the airports of Alicante, Barcelona, Mallorca, and Menorca.
These systems, commonly known as ABC (Automated Border Control), integrate advanced document verification and biometric technologies to optimize performance in passenger processing times, depending on the type of document used and the experience of the user with this type of unmanned gates. Also, these systems increase the security at the airports where they are installed.
Among the highlights of the project, it is worth mentioning that the airport of Mallorca now has the largest rows of automated border control systems in Spain, having forty ABC gates per row.
The systems developed and implemented by everis work by means of passport and electronic ID readers, and they also integrate biometric recognition, both facial and fingerprint, to ensure a correct identification of passengers.
Moreover, the gates are integrated with the National Police databases in order to locate wanted individuals or stolen documents. Agents can monitor the operation of the gates either from a booth installed in the transit area or through the portable devices designed for this purpose (tablets).
