Red Bull Air Race Selects IDetect’s Handheld ID Scanners to run all points of entry at their well publicized New York City Air Race held at Liberty State Park. The event draws thousands of spectators to witness air plane races. General admission spectators are within 100 feet of certain sections of the race course which causes a major concern for security. Red Bull needed to select an ID Scanner that could handle a large influx of spectators quickly yet still maintain complete accuracy with no bearing on what type of ID that was used.

IDetect ID Scanners performed and served as the Identification verification tool throughout the event and several other functions.

They were selected because they have a battery life of more then a week of use without requiring a charge, they scan in an ID in less than 1/4 second, they are incredibly accurate in detecting fake IDs, tampered IDs, Expired IDs, Shared IDs, and Watch List entrants.
