Case Studies

By its nature, JSaRC’s work covers a wide variety of disciplines, innovations and technologies. Here are some areas where JSaRC and its partners across Industry, Academia and Government are making a difference for a safer and more secure world.

Below, you’ll find highlights of a few case studies. If you would like to know more details just click through to the case study of your choice…

Biometric Self-Enrolment Feasibility Trials

JSaRC has been leading the development and testing of ground-breaking Biometric Self-Enrolment (BSEFT) smartphone app technologies, which provide contactless digital fingerprint capture, on behalf of the Home Office.

The Home Office ambition is to have all visitors and migrants provide their biometrics ahead of travel to the UK. This work seeks to offer those who do not currently require a visa the opportunity to self-enrol their fingerprints remotely, enabling identity and security checks to be carried out before travel and as an integral part of the consideration process for
immigration permission.

CASE STUDY: Border Force - Coaches and Cars

One of the most pressing security challenges for the UK occurs when processing and clearing cars and coaches at sea and rail ports.

Currently all passengers disembark vehicles and are checked separately. This can be resource and time intensive.

JSaRC has worked with Border Force to explore technological solutions to resolve this issue.

CASE STUDY: Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS)

Aviation security is a government priority and it is one with an ever-changing threat landscape.

The Home Office launched the Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) in cooperation with the Department for Transport (DfT) to respond to this challenge.

The aim of FASS is to deliver new and innovative solutions to ensure the safety and security of the travelling public.

CASE STUDY: Securing Crowded Places

Due to the developing global terrorist threat, as demonstrated in Manchester and London, preventing mass casualty attacks is a priority.

The aim of this trial was to increase understanding and awareness of how innovative technologies and operational concepts can be combined to reduce the risk of attacks and provide greater protection at events and in busy public areas.
