Gatwick gets iris recognition
Gatwick South has started using an iris recognition system - it is the ninth UK airport terminal to roll out the system.
Project IRIS(Iris Recognition Immigration System) is designed to give travellers resident in the UK, who have no black marks against their name on the immigration database, a means of avoiding normal immigration checks by having their eyes scanned instead. The project has suffered a couple of delays - it was originally due to go live in 2005 and then pushed back to December 2006.
