CBP Launches Facial Recognition Technology at Detroit Metro Airport to Expedite Arrivals and Departures

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched Simplified Arrival at Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) today, September 25.  Simplified Arrival is modernizing international arrivals for air travelers and crew by automating processes and biometrically matching the traveler to their travel document using face comparison technology.

CBP is committed to implementing an integrated biometric entry-exit process that provides significant benefits to air travel partners in addition to meeting the security mandate for a biometric entry-exit system.  As part of its innovation efforts, CBP built a face biometric matching service, creating an ecosystem that supports the use of face comparison technology throughout the international passenger journey to include biometric exit, entry, and other passenger services.

Facial comparison technology is used because it seamlessly integrates into the airport environment and is easy to use for travelers and facilitates the flow of legitimate travel.  Face comparison technology also strengthens National Security by reducing the risk that an imposter uses a lost or stolen travel document to enter or exit the United States. The technology enables CBP officers to focus on the traveler interview rather than administrative tasks.
