Airport Security will Deploy Suspect Face Recognition Computer

Ripped from: PcWorld - News

Early next year security personnel in major U.S. airports will be equipped with wearable computers, introduced at Comdex here this week, so they can instantly identify suspicious travelers based on face recognition technology.

The manufacturer of the devices declined to identify which airports will receive the gear first, but say the equipment is being deployed within three months.

The device--called a Mobile Assistant 5--will allow security personnel on the terminal floor to positively identify a suspect, say representatives of Xybernaut, the developer. The Mobile Assistant 5 provides the security person with key information, including a photo, that can be used during questioning.
