Airports are a hub for the daily movement of a large number of passengers and for the handling of high volumes of baggage and cargo. Even with economic downturns and a financially troubled airline industry, it is likely that airports and airlines will have to maintain a double digit growth in security expenditures over the next 3 to 5 years to meet the increasing threats.
Koetter's range of flexible security management solutions are ideally suited to help protect and secure facilities against a variety of threats. Our airports security systems are fully scalable, providing solutions for any size airfield or airport with complex security requirements across wide spread sites. Our security management solutions can evolve as your requirements change and can be extended or upgraded in relation to your needs.
As the aviation industry evolves, it faces unique challenges that will test the ingenuity of the sector. From the ups and downs of economic cycles to the increasing overhead costs required to meet constantly changing security standards, and pressures to reduce carbon footprints, airports and airlines have an increasing need to use technology to help them meet their business and security goals.
Every business has security concerns. Employee theft, property crime and information security are major concerns for all companies today. Common issues specifically associated with airports include passenger and staff safety, managing access levels and cargo theft. All these challenges can be met with an integrated security system from Koetter Advanced Security Solutions.
Passenger safety is paramount to air carriers as their reputation and brand depends on it. Ever present potential threats to staff of aggressive passengers must also be managed effectively. With large open public areas to monitor and issues such as unattended bags to track, the effective positioning of video camera surveillance that can record high quality images is an essential deterrent. Knowing that any incidents will be seen on cameras and then recorded onto the digital video management system provides peace of mind. Video clips can be quickly exported to DVD/USB for any ensuing police investigation.
Historically, airport security systems have been typically standalone systems. Increasingly, however, airports are integrating these systems to provide a more business centric focus. Koetter supplied products can provide a range of security solutions from standalone access control, CCTV, intrusion and Fire systems, to customized single screen solutions that will integrate not only those platforms but will link to other airport systems to produce a centralized control system that can address not only the needs of the security department but can provide crucial information to other areas of the business.
In today's threat climate it is vital to ensure that only authorized personnel have access to restricted areas. Electronic security systems can help achieve this. Koetter's access control products have specific features designed to meet the needs of an aviation environment from advanced monitoring of doors (reducing incidence of false alarms) to the ability to use portable readers that can validate staff ID at remote airport areas where cabling infrastructure may not exist. If an identified threat level increases, the system operation can be changed to reflect this, automatically changing individual access levels, and increasing security levels. Beyond the security environment the access control system can be used to help in areas from health and safety by allowing only trained personnel to use certain equipment.
Koetter's CCTV products have been selected from the top brands available, not only to be used to address the normal security requirements of monitoring terminal buildings, baggage movement, car parks, and perimeter boundaries which are paramount, but also to meet more operational requirements such as monitoring maintenance crews as they perform aircraft repairs and maintenance to help meet the operational guidelines issued by control authorities.
Effective remote monitoring of ground logistics such as the cargo handling, baggage offloading, aircraft refueling, etc. are all crucial to efficient airport operations. With an integrated video and access control system, all these are monitored and alarms and events captured to insure that high value cargo can be tracked, and incidents such as accidents, injury or theft can be reviewed on recorded video footage.
