PISCES (Personal Identification Secure Comparison and Evaluation System) is a border control database system.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The PISCES-project was initiated by the Department of State, Terrorist Interdiction Program (TIP) in 1997, initially as a system for countries in improving their watch listing capabilities by providing a mainframe computer system to facilitate immigration processing.

The PISCES-program falls under "The Terrorist Interdiction Program" (TIP), an ongoing program of the United States Department of State. TIP provides all necessary software and hardware (mostly commercial and off-the-shelf, such as cameras and passport scanners), full installation, operator training. Additionally, TIP assists with immigration business process improvement at ports of entry chosen for PISCES installation.
