Airport Security

SECURING THE AIRPORT: INTELL(I) AT WORK

Airport, one of the most critical transit points instrumental in the success of a whole country’s macro economic growth. Large airports can help transition a city from just another large city to a transit hub, where millions of passengers, cargo and baggage pass through every year, either coming in, going out or just transiting through the airport. As much as airports offer an opportunity for growth and progress to any city, their security has become increasingly important, as they are high visibility targets for terrorists, criminals and smugglers. Airports also serve as hubs for freight, at times carrying thousands of tonnes of freight, baggage and goods, which can sometimes be toxic and flammable, or dangerous. Effective surveillance is therefore critical, to ensure security and safety of passengers and cargo that passes through or from the airports.

Airports can be relatively easy targets for terrorism and crime, with thousands of acres to be secured and distributed security management can create issues on situation awareness of the airport and surrounding environment. S3Tel’s patented Intell(i) solution for airports provides powerful command and control solutions, ranging from CCTV solutions with on board analytic's, facial recognition and ‘Automatic Number Plate Recognition’, to 3D mapping of the facility, securing the external fencing around the airport, and completely automating the alerts in areas of interest. Coupled with bio-metrics based access systems, and broadband airport communications systems, S3Tel’s solutions cover every aspect of airport security, from surveillance to controlled access to restricted and common areas.

S3Tel’s Intell(i) provides integration with GIS systems, complete single touch access points to all sensors, including camera systems, facial recognition systems, access control systems, airport fencing (PIDS) and e-gates. Our solutions ensure that the airport security personnel have a bird’s eye view of the overall security in the airport, as well as get automated alerts on any security breach, clearly detailing the issue, along with time and point of incidence. S3Tel’s CSIDSS solutions provide data mining solutions that allow security personnel to go back in time, and in many cases provide detailed information on what really happened, with date, time and area stamps on each and every incident recorded at the airport. S3Tel works with large Video surveillance System manufacturers to further compliment their solutions, with tight integration of other systems, so that the ‘one View’ can be attained at the security headquarters.
