GCR Inc. (GCR) Introduces "AirportIQ Secure Credentials," a Biometric Security and Continuous Credentialing Solution


NEW ORLEANS -- GCR Inc. (GCR) introduces "AirportIQ Secure Credentials," a biometric security and continuous credentialing solution for the aviation and airport industry.  AirportIQ Secure Credentials provides a comprehensive and trusted, biometrically-enabled security credential.  Features include the continuous validation of background; verification of the identity of aviation workers; binding of biometric and biographic information to the individual; and improving the existing security badge enrollment processes.



This new system manages the entry and maintenance of identity information, both biographical and biometric; prints badges; interfaces with access control systems; maintains historical information; and provides easy deployment to off-site authorized signers.  This new system provides a high level of identity assurance within the user and enables strong authentication for access to physical resources (doors, buildings, and other restricted areas).



AirportIQ Secure Credentials combines core biometric and credentialing functionality provided by ImageWare Systems (IWS), with business automation and other components built by GCR Inc.  The result is a comprehensive solution that is actively being marketed to other airports.



The credentialing capability includes the following components, making up the base credentialing system:



--  Automatic background check interfacing with federal agencies, including continuous vetting of individuals holding credentials

--  Card issuance and management

--  Regulatory compliance functions, including automatic generation of audit lists

--  Security and Airfield Enforcement Program, which allows security badge office users to enter tickets or other violations on badge holders

--  Perimeter post access validation



"GCR is pleased to be able to offer this new personnel credentialing and badging system to the airport industry.  The significant capabilities it offers to help an organization manage the myriad operational and regulatory requirements is significant," said Phillip Brodt, Vice President and General Manager of Transportation & Security Solutions at GCR.
