Defence Research and Development Canadas Centre for Security Science DRDC-CSS commissioned a literature and patents review by the National Research Councils Knowledge Management section NRCKM to investigate emerging technologies to support the airport border of the future. The focus of the review is on technologies that enhance and improve the traveler authentication process as well as the screening of passengers and their luggage at the point of entry. The project was divided into three phases according to the three key questions. Phases I and II consisted of a review and summary of the available literature. Phase III involved a survey of technologies currently deployed in airports and those that may emerge in the next 5-10 years, and was divided into two main areas identity verification i.e. biometrics and baggagepassenger screening. Literature and patent databases were searched for each question, and bibliographic records imported to text mining software for analysis.
