Biometric Scanning

The launch of the world’s first ‘biometric path’ (facial and iris recognition)

Blog note. A mark on the forehead would be next to the eyes (iris scan), a mark on the right hand would be next to a finger print scan. How easy would it be to scan both the beast’s mark/name/number and eye/fingers at the same time for biometric verification, validation and approval to buy/sell?

Revelation 13:16 … And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

Revelation 14:9 … And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

Revelation 20:4 … And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

The use of both biometric facial (iris scans) and fingerprint (hand scans) achieves 99.95% verification accuracy!

(Emphasis added). End of note.

Emirates set to launch world’s first ‘biometric path’ at Dubai Int’l

Dubai airline uses mix of facial and iris recognition to offer passengers a seamless journey through Dubai International Airport

Emirates is gearing up to launch the world’s first “biometric path” which will offer its customers a seamless airport journey at Dubai International airport. Utilising the latest biometric technology – a mix of facial and iris recognition – Emirates passengers can soon check in for their flight, complete immigration formalities, enter the Emirates Lounge, and board their flights, simply by strolling through the airport.

The latest biometric equipment has already been installed at Emirates Terminal 3 and can be found at select check-in counters, at the Emirates Lounge in Concourse B for premium passengers, and at select boarding gates. Areas where biometric equipment are installed will be clearly marked.

Once its internal tests are completed, Emirates will shortly launch trials for biometric processing at the other key customer points at the airport – check-in, lounge, and boarding gate – and subsequently at transit counters/gates, and for its chauffeur drive services. Initially focused on First and Business class travellers, Emirates intends to extend the “biometric path” to Economy class travellers in Dubai, and in the future potentially to other airports outside of Dubai, and also for its own dedicated crew check in facility.

Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ Executive vice president and chief operations officer said: “Emirates continuously innovates and strives to improve our day-to-day business. After extensive research and evaluation of numerous technologies and new approaches to enhance our passenger journey, we are now satisfied with the preliminary work we have carried out and are ready to commence live trials of the world’s first biometric path at Emirates Terminal 3.”

Major General Mohammed Ahmed Almarri, Dubai General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) said: “We are pleased to roll-out these new initiatives at Terminal 3 in collaboration with Emirates and our airport stakeholders. The Smart Tunnel tests are running smoothly, and we are now preparing to mobilise the other biometric systems at the other areas in T3.”

Emirates said that eventually, the “live” passenger tracking capability will also improve security and enable the airline to locate and assist ‘late’ customers who would otherwise miss their flights. The move follows trials for the Smart Tunnel, a project by the General Directorate of Residence and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai (GDRFA) in collaboration with Emirates, was launched earlier in October. It is a world-first for passport control, where passengers simply walk through a tunnel and are “cleared” by immigration authorities without human intervention or the need for a physical passport stamp.
