And while we’re on the topic of Customs & Border Protection (see previous post today), Joe Cadillic also sends along this interesting item. Justin Lee reports:

The Custom and Border Protection’s Entry/Exit Transformation (EXT) Office are piloting several programs to make the process of collecting biometric data from foreign traveler entering and leaving the United States less invasive, according to a report by Federal Times.

The pilots will test new technologies such as fingerprinting and open-air pass-through scanners, including one project beginning November at the Otay Mesa border crossing in San Diego aimed at capturing biometric data on-the-move.

The “Pedestrian Border Experiment” will test multiple on-the-move and stop-and-pause technologies, especially those involving face and iris scans, which are able to record biometrics as travellers walk by on their way to the gate.
