The fight against illegal immigration, high crime rates and terrorist threats demands a huge effort from immigration and police authorities in order to create a
secure area within the geographical limits of the country. The Secure Border Management System
(SBMS) integrates the latest advances in security technology and provides a tool to the immigration authorities to fight efficiently against these new threats.
The SBMS suite features all aspects of a state-of-the-art border control system, including all functionalities for
primary inspection (primary passenger processing) and exhaustive handling at the
secondary inspection of exceptional and special cases like rejections, deportation
procedures, handling of dead bodies, group handling, special alerts and many more.
Furthermore the SBMS suite offers back office management, a control list management
system with full legacy and external system interface support, enterprise class
database replication, system administration and the complete range of security
and identification checks, including checks over any travel and ID document, 1:1 and 1:n biometric matching (face, finger, iris) and a large variety of supporting functionality for immigration, like automatic Entry/Exit
card ICR recognition and full transit history, etc.
