Viisage (VISG) was up 7.5% in preopen Island trading, a day after the maker of face-recognition security technology said it will install one of its systems at an unnamed major U.S. airport within the next month.

The installation will be the first face-recognition system in operation in an airport, the company said.

Viisage's stock, along with other security software and technology stocks, has soared amid heightened security concerns in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
