About FLO Corporation
FLO Corporation, a development stage company, offers a solution for the Registered Traveler (RT) program, which is administered by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (the TSA). The RT program is designed to identify air passengers who pose a minimal security risk and then to provide those passengers with access to faster and simpler processing at airport security checkpoints.
The company has designed its solution to provide Registered Traveler program enrollment services using enrollment stations, credentialing of TSA-approved registered travelers through the issuance of a proprietary smart card, and registered traveler authentication services at security checkpoints using authentication kiosks.
The company has entered into teaming agreements with Unisys in connection with its proposals to various airports for the design and implementation of a Registered Traveler program, and the company has entered into a software development agreement with International RAM Associates, LLC, or International RAM, for server, authentication and related software. The company also has entered into letters of understanding with Johnson Controls Federal Systems, Inc., JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and Smiths Detection Inc.
Technology, Products and Services
The company intends to deploy both fixed and portable enrollment stations as part of its solution. Its enrollment application process is designed to feature a touch-screen user interface that guides the enrollment operator through the process while providing visual feedback to both its enrollment operator and the applicant. To ensure acceptance of enrolled biometric data during the enrollment process, the company employs two-stage automated quality assurance testing of the collected fingerprint data.
Identity Management System
The companys Identity Management System, or IDMS provides the foundation for managing the life cycle of participants from pre-enrollment through authentication, supports the security mechanisms to safeguard each component of its solution infrastructure, and implements the core functionality required to deploy authentication services across its service points. The companys IDMS is based on the Microsoft SQL*Server database platform. This approach provides an enterprise-class relational database management system capable of supporting the secure management of Registered Traveler program participant data. Data security is provided through the intrinsic facilities of the SQL*Server product and through partitioning and encryption of data by the IDMS application infrastructure.
The companys solution provides for the issuance of a smart card credential that meets all requirements of the RTICs Technical Interoperability Specification, which forms the basis of the TSAs Registered Traveler program requirements. The Central Information Management System, or CIMS, is a commercially neutral entity designed to aggregate and store biometric and other identification information, which it would distribute to the entities participating in the Registered Traveler program. The TSA requires that all Registered Traveler service providers belong to the CIMS network. CIMS would be responsible for issuing to the company each biometric data payload, which is the identification information carried with in the biometric data record. The company would combine this biometric data with participant demographic data, security objects, and digital signatures into the card data payload, personalize this data onto the smart card chip, and then mail the smart card to the Registered Traveler participant. The companys smart cards are designed to be both secure and interoperable with Registered Traveler authentication stations deployed by other TSA-approved service providers at any participating airport.
Kiosks and Facility Infrastructure
The company designed its authentication kiosks specifically for use in airport security screening lines. The company designed the authentication kiosk to incorporate both iris and fingerprint biometric matching, interfacing to the authentication back-end through secure, Advanced Encryption Standard encrypted spread spectrum frequency-hopping communications. This wireless capability is designed to allow airports to determine the optimal location for authentication services without regard for availability of hardwired communications infrastructure or traditional 802.11 wireless infrastructures.
The company designed its solution to deliver access to real-time data from the Registered Traveler security lines to the airport security management team. Its data management tools would be useful for airport security management.
The company, in February 2007, entered into a letter of intent with Huntsville International Airport (HSV) under which Huntsville International Airport agreed to work with the company and its strategic partners to develop and implement a Registered Traveler program.
The companys primary competitors in the Registered Traveler market include Verified Identity Pass, Inc., or Verified Identity, Unisys, and Vigilant Solutions LLC, or Vigilant.
FLO Corporation was founded in 2005.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
