SMART BORDER SOLUTIONS (SBS)
Somapa's primary business is border security solutions
which Somapa has been providing since 1989.
There are many smart border initiatives globally, some integrating the entry-exit databases
within the region while others focus on self-service using automated border control systems
such as E-Gates and self-service kiosks.
Somapa's Smart Border Solutions focus on capturing biographical and biometric information
from travellers when crossing international borders.
While biometric data provides a snapshot authenticating the identity of a traveller,
biographical data provides a moving picture of present and historical information about the traveller.
Together, biometric, and biographical data form the underlying platform for Somapa's Smart Border Solutions.
