Ultra Electronics Forensic Technology launches state-of-the-art solution for Automated Travel Document Authentication
Ultra Electronics Forensic Technology, the world leader in automated ballistics identification systems, announces the launch of Projectina INTERCEPT™ a state-of-the-art automated travel document authentication solution for the border security industry.
The technology will enable the accurate authentication of large numbers of travel documents, on a scale not yet seen anywhere in the world, empowering border officials to make better-informed decisions and to prevent illegal entries.
Developed alongside Projectina AG, known for best-in-class comparison microscopes and document examination systems, INTERCEPT is a revolutionary new product which uses high-resolution image acquisition and sophisticated authentication algorithm technology to detect even the most sophisticated forgeries on passports and other travel documents. Leveraging IBIS (Forensic Technology’s flagship ballistic identification system’s networking technology), INTERCEPT identifies trends and patterns of use in fraudulent travel documents and shares this intelligence with a network of border security agencies and forensic expert communities via real-time alerts.
INTERCEPT will be unveiled and demonstrated at booth No. S10 at the Security Document World exhibition and conference, being held in London UK, June 11-13, 2019.
Brian Sinnott, President of Forensic Technology, commented: “The launch of INTERCEPT represents a huge step in the evolution of passport authentication at central border security lines. The new system will not only drastically reduce wait times, it will also provide advanced intelligence to all agencies and experts on its networks. It will significantly improve capacity to identify fake travel documents and allow more time for the human aspects of border control.”
