Iris on the Move® Product Guide Iris Recognition at a Distance and on the Move

SRI Sarnoff’s Iris on the Move® (IOM) technology has revolutionized the field of biometrics by combining the security of iris recognition with a fast, convenient, high-throughput solution. IOM systems capture an iris image at a distance while the subject is in motion. The systems are eye-safe with multiple configurations, each requiring little user interaction.

Frequently Asked Questions •• Can the near infrared illumination from the IOM PassPort system damage my eyes? The level used in the PassPort System is well below that prescribed by safety standards. In particular, for typical exposure levels experienced in walking through the portal, the levels are many times lower than the threshold level values of damaging radiance and irradiance in the ACGIH handbook. For long-term exposure that might apply to a PassPort attendant, the levels are still significantly lower than the damage thresholds.1

•• What medical studies support the standards to which the IOM PassPort system complies? Among the important studies that contribute to the current safety standards for near infrared radiation exposure are research articles written by David Sliney, Ph. D., a nationally recognized expert on the safety of lasers and lamps. Dr. Sliney has examined the PassPort system and

has concluded that the system “does not pose a potential hazard to the eye under realistic viewing conditions.”

•• How does the dose of near infrared illumination of the IOM PassPort system compare to that received outdoors on a sunny day over the same wavelength band? On a cloudless, sunny day, the continuous irradiance of direct sunlight in the 800 to 900nm band is measured to be approximately 10mW/cm2 using a NIST traceable irradiance meter with appropriate near infrared filter in agreement with accepted values.2 By comparison, the infrared illumination in this band from the PassPort system is, on average, about 20% as bright.

• How has the IOM PassPort system been tested for safety?


As measured by certified, independent testing agency, Laser Product Safety. Report available.


See for example,

The IOM team has made extensive measurements of the optical power distribution, or irradiance, due to the illuminators in the PassPort system. These measurements have been compared to the safety standards under conservative assumptions, for example, with a subject’s eye pressed up against the illuminator.

•• How can we trust the SRI Sarnoff measurements? In addition to subjecting the PassPort system to internal scrutiny, the system was tested by Laser Products Safety LLC, an independent testing agency, using calibrated test equipment and the following IEC 62741 photo-biological lamp system safety standards. Results are available for review and show that the PassPort system meets all standards by large safety margins. In addition, measurements have been independently verified by Dr. David Sliney, a health physicist known around the world as an expert in the safety of laser and light systems. LPS’s and Dr. Sliney’s reports are available for review.
