Aviation Biometrics Solution Summit

Seattle, Washington
July 11, 2017

The Aviation Biometrics Solution Summit is an interactive session with DHS, airports, airlines, and industry leaders to advance the use of biometrics for commercial air passengers. With key experts around the table, the goal of the Summit is to articulate a common understanding of biometric benefits for passengers, government, airlines, and airports. With a baseline agreement on the reasons for biometrics, the conversation shifts to how we as a community enable biometrics. We will discuss data sharing, viable use cases, and tactical steps the aviation community can take now to make the vision of seamless travel a reality.
