This authentication solution consists of a terminal (check-in digital type) in which the traveler enter your ID or e-passport. In seconds, the system verifies the authenticity of the document and checks to correspond to the carrier by the biometric scan of your fingerprint and facial features.

Once past this control, the traveler is directed to the control gate output, incorporating a sensor that checks your fingerprint again to give you access. Thus, maximum comfort for the traveler is achieved and offloads the agents of the National Police, that should only intervene if they detect any abnormality in the process.

The ABC system has been installed in the T2 terminal at Malaga Airport, with three unassisted control equipment documentation and a door with biometric fingerprint identification, and the terminal T3, which has four control equipment and two-door equipped with sensors, since it is one of the largest passenger transit.

Francisco Martinez, highlighted during the opening ceremony the entry into service of the ABC system occurs "after the success of the two pilot projects, since 2010, work at the airport Adolfo Suárez-Madrid Barajas and Barcelona-El Prat ", also developed and implemented by Indra.

New generation systems

This year, the European Commission has entrusted the leadership of Indra draft European R & D ABC4EU (Automated Border Gates for Europe), in which fifteen partners from seven different countries work.

This initiative aims to harmonize the different types of ABC systems that exist in different countries in Europe, so that passengers always have the same user experience, and facilitate the implementation of the system regardless of vendor who has developed. Also, this system will also be prepared to enable the verification of digital document generation and the possibility that citizens of countries outside the EU will be discussed also can use it, extending its use to a greater number of travelers.

This implanted first in the Malaga airport technology will also launch soon in the Palma de Mallorca airport, Tenerife South, Gerona and Alicante, and pilot projects aerodromes of Madrid and Barcelona and the port of Algeciras is also ampiarán (Cadiz).
