miSense trial ‘not found’

Posted in surveillance society by ukliberty on May 8, 2007

A few people have come this way by entering “miSense” into their search engines, reminding me of this. Thanks!

Now, on 2 April I wrote:

An evaluation of the biometric scanning system trialled at Heathrow Terminal 3, miSense (some history), is expected to be available some time this month. …

I searched the Home Office website for “miSense” – no results.

    Argh! OK, so the Home Office bit isn’t much of a surprise. But it tells me that my search filters are faulty (now fixed) so I missed this one!

    Though if you try you will have better luck – 0 results from the official search, 2 results from the unofficial search.

    Thank you for reminding me of

    I need a new memory.

    You are absolutely right – no results from Direct.Gov, while two from DirectionlessGov lead to two PDFs but strangely there is no mention of miSense within those…

    Aha! Looking closer, I see I already had one of those, so dutifully downloaded the other. Turns out they are in fact the same…

    And it does mention miSense – but remember that we are looking at what amounts to a sales brochure – there’s also a slight glossing-over of the rather less-than-stellar results of the Project IRIS pilot/trial-rollout/test.

    Oh, I’ll have to look again then… I just searched for miSense in Acrobat with no results.

    Just to be clear, these *are* two different documents (my unique filing system at fault, not me honest) but both do mention miSense.

    Both also have lots of ‘aspirationals’ and plenty of talking up the shiny biometric identity stuff *ptui*.
