What happens if TSA is not able to match my biometrics to my travel documents?

During this technology test, all passengers must complete the standard TDC process for manual identity and travel document verification. If TSA is unable to obtain a match through the biometrics technology, the TSA officer will use standard manual traveler identity verification procedures.
