Border Security Kiosk Solutions Overview
With border security becoming an ever-increasing concern in the United States, airports and other access points need an effective way to manage the flow of international travelers. Self-Service Border Security Kiosks are assisting with that challenge. Security kiosks help governments dramatically cut costs while still meeting several mandated security standards. Document scanning and passenger verification enable an efficient and secure entry, without the traditional manual steps of paper forms and long lines. KIOSK’s deployed solutions include Registered Traveler enrollment and screening programs and border security automation for the United States and Mexican customs gates.
Attributes of Border Security Kiosks
In cooperation with our premier Government software partners, KIOSK has implemented multiple generations of the Global Entry self- service program for the Department of Homeland Security – Customs and Border Protection (CPB). The Global Entry platform enables vetted international travelers to use expedited lanes at U.S. airports and when crossing international borders.
Value drivers of border security kiosks include:
- Expedited CPB processing
- Reduced wait times
- Minimizing crowding at customs
Travelers apply in advance of their trip, and upon re-entry to the United States they simply scan their documents, verify their identity and passport scan, and complete a customs declaration. The kiosk then issues the passenger a transaction receipt and directs them to a Customs agent to complete the process.
Border Security Kiosks incorporate all the tools live CPB agents use for screening, allowing low-risk travelers to complete the process and be on their way. Kiosks can also be programmed to provide service in a variety of languages, to efficiently accommodate international passengers. The ROI associated with eliminating manual document scanning and passenger screening at scale explains why airports around the world are consistently investing in automating these repetitive, but critical processes.
Border security and airline kiosk features generally include:
- Biometric identification components
- Document scanner
- Receipt printer
- Payment devices, where applicable
- ADA Section 508 compliant design – EZ Access Navigation Pads, headphone jacks, braille labels, etc.
KIOSK has extensive experience in integrating complex component sets required for custom security projects. Since 9/11, KIOSK has provided the best in custom security automation platforms for key clients including NEC, CSC, Northrup Grummon, Unisys, CLEAR, ARINC, and more.
When compared with traditional screening infrastructure and staffing requirements, border security kiosks are more cost-effective and are easily scalable as needs increase.
