High Accuracy Facial Surveillance Face Finder

By: John Honovich, Published on Dec 06, 2009

Sagem Securite's Safran Group announced a new product that can significantly increase face finding and recognition performance. Called Face on-The-Fly, it consists of two strips of cameras placed 4 or 5 feet apart at head height. See the image below:

Of course, the major downside is that this is not covert at all. This should be fine for airports and other high security settings where subjects expect to be screened but problematic for general use where people may be offended by such overt surveillance.

Update 2012: We have not heard any use or promotion of this since the initial launch.
