Intrepid Minds was originally asked to provide expertise in stakeholder management and business processes in the international travel and border control field for the four-year EU-funded ‘FastPass’ automated border control (ABC) programme. Intrepid Minds quickly began to utilize its consultants’ experience of ABC prototypes, trials and projects and due to our expertise, our role expanded in a number of areas, including risk assessment, design and system requirements as well as assuming a reviewing role to ensure that the FastPass project remains not only innovative, but deliverable.
With our experience from previous senior public roles in the border control industry, our input into the requirements gathering work led to multiple developments in the field of biometrics and the processing algorithms behind that technology.
The end solution for the FastPASS project was able to be incorporated into multiple border types across the EU and provided a standardised, harmonised approach to border control technology that fits with many international standards in the field.
