Development of a border security passenger screening application for an international client and border security agency.
Passenger screening and risk profiling can be unpredictable by nature and require fast response times. This information is not always accurate. Data sources are diverse e.g. immigration systems, national watchlists, traveller records/history, visas as well as external sources such as Interpol’s lost and stolen records. Corballis’ client requested us to implement a real-time and scalable passenger screening system that can be integrated with various data sources and provides response times in the milliseconds range.
We delivered a custom analytic tool which aids border security agents to analyse connections between passengers and targets in near real-time. The implemented system architecture allows border security agencies to handle hundreds of millions of passenger records each year without any impact on the system’s performance. The solution leveraged Corballis’ innovative graph visualisation library, which supported the graphical representation of people and the connections between them in the form of a graph that can be used to execute complex search queries, revealing hidden patterns and linkages. This tool allows users to search and view visualisation networks in near real-time.
Analytics services included:
The Corballis visualisation library supported the following functions:
Where profiling was once a manual and tedious process based on high level and generic rules, our solution facilitates the targeting of much more granular and accurate profiles ensuring a more streamlined and efficient screening process. The operator is no longer concerned with too much data at any one time as the system was designed to cope with hundreds of millions of passenger records in real-time.
