RTLS for access control


Airport Security

The criminal activities in restricted airport areas are a major threat to international airports. Unfortunately, there is no technology capable of measuring and reducing the risks caused by non-passenger activities in airports.

The movement of non-passengers, a complex problem

Airport security is a very complex issue. It regroups three security levels: air traffic control, passenger screening and non-passenger control. Today, air traffic control has been significantly strengthened. For passengers and baggage screening, extraordinary efforts are deployed. However for the control of non-passengers circulating in restricted areas, the problem remains. The main issue is that airport configuration makes it difficult to install doors in every hallway, every corridor without significantly disrupting workflow and passenger processing. How can we monitor every displacement of thousands of workers in airport restricted areas without placing a security guard behind every worker?

Thousands of employees and virtually no control

In a medium sized airport, there are typically 11 000 people, equivalent to the population of a small town, working, transporting goods such as, kerosene and other hazardous chemicals. They are the shop staff, restaurants and cargo-processing workers, cleaning staff, aircraft maintenance personnel and hundreds of baggage handlers that operate day and night in different airport areas.

Airport security services are concerned that a non-passenger who has access to a limited area, can simply walk in an unauthorized zone and sabotage aircrafts or safety equipment.

Purelink ICCS monitors the circulation of each employee

Purelink ICCS applications can help. ICCS applications can locate thousands of employees and subcontractors, in real-time throughout the entire airport facility. By placing business rules on the profile of each non-passenger personnel, ICCS applications automatically control the displacements of thousands of employees and subcontractors, simultaneously.

When a non-passenger accesses an unauthorized area, ICCS can trigger an alarm, inform security and focus video surveillance cameras to that particular individual. In addition ICCS applications will continue to track this particular individual until the incident is resolved.
