Airport security needs and legislation requirements change over time. Such changes mainly affect access control, which is compromised of systems, hardware, software and procedures concerning various aspects, from passenger flow to access permissions of employees and asset movement in all airports facilities.
The access control aspect is one of the most crucial, for both airport security and airport efficiency and thus defines the standards on all airport levels.
Access control components are a combination of several systems, aiming for the purpose of full control over airport ground movements of employees, passengers, vehicles and related assets.
GATES PROTECTION & SECURITY ELEMENTS
TERMINAL OPTIMIZATION – PASSENGER FLOW
Air navigation service providers (ANSPs) require a surveillance solution capable of addressing the serious risk of runway incursions and ground vehicle surveillance in critical areas. GSA – Ground Surveillance Automation – provides surveillance of aircrafts and ground vehicles required for surface movement surveillance as well as advanced-surface movement guidance and control systems (A- SMGCS) to ensure safe and efficient operations at any airport. A-SMGCS combines mature multi-alteration technology with Surface Movement Radar (SMR). A-SMGCS provides enhancements for low visibility operations as well as for day-to-day operations by increasing safety and capacity.
Security Bollards, Arm Barriers, Wedge Barriers, Under-vehicle Inspection Systems are all part of a large variety of anti-terror protection systems for secured compounds, and, along with secured identity management for vehicles and personnel, are aimed at achieving maximum security with minimum flow effect. This will be achieved only with correct operational methods of security personnel.
In order to optimize passenger flow, the use of systems and software is not nearly enough. The full optimization process will include methodological operations of the system in a way that will allow the efficient processing of people and goods, and will detect and stop criminals and CBRN threats. Training and methodology implementation is important in order to ensure the fast and smooth flow of the 99.9% of the passengers that pose no threat.
In order to ensure passenger safety, by subjecting passengers and luggage through efficient, non-intrusive scanning methods, the use of systems such as the Public Announcement System (PA) and multilingual evacuation control are all contained in a single management interface.
UNIFIED MANAGEMENT PLATFORM
Identity management software provides the ability to control all aspects of access security elements, physical security, surveillance tools, entrance permits, etc. The system allows various interfaces and permit combinations, and different vendors and security providers, such as modular system providers, the ability to change and to flexibly adapt to new requirements. The system features several integrated modules such as a multi-biometric authentication platform, unified GUI for easier administration and control and a real-time situation management interface.
