Currently being tested in Mexico, the United States and France, this facial recognition system could well create another leap forward in terms of air security; however, before seeing Argus installed at airports generally, one or two problems need to be ironed out.

The establishment of an international database, such as exists today for fingerprints, will take time. So that this facial recognition system can one day be put into place at airport platforms, the advances in cosmetic surgery should also be taken into account; but Morpho remain positive, technologies have advanced significantly over the past 40 years. The good old fingerprint records that one has to labour through today are already a thing of the past.
