Vision-Box Australia Pty Ltd won our contract to deliver a new automated border clearance solution for passengers arriving at Australian international airports.
The three year, $22.5 million contract, will replace the current two-step arrivals SmartGates that have been in place since 2008, with a contactless solution using the latest in biometric facial recognition technology.
We will use this technology to deliver a capability that will eventually enable known travellers to self-process through the border without producing their passport.
Approximately 40 million passengers and crew are cleared through the border at Australian airports, with this number expected to rise to approximately 50 million per year by 2020. Contactless technology will allow the vast majority of travellers to self-process across the border and enable Australian Border Force officers to focus on those who may pose a risk to the border.
