Airport Surveillance and Security Management

The multiple roles played by today's airports pose considerable security challenges. Airports must therefore meet incredibly demanding criteria with regard to security, safety, communications and building automation.


  • Protecting passengers and employees
  • Preventing terrorism in its many possible forms - bomb threats, suicide attacks, sabotage and hijacking of aircraft
  • Dealing with fire and explosions
  • Managing a wide variety of different access authorizations Managing these challenges is a daunting task, since many different areas need to be monitored: perimeters, parking structures, terminals and other passenger facilities, aprons, airfields, shops, restaurants etc. Our solutions help airports to master these security, safety and communication challenges.

Our Solutions include:

Video Surveillance System

Our Video Management System enables complete management and recording of all video surveillance components. High-resolution CCTV cameras can continuously monitor passport control checkpoints or people moving through and spending time in different areas. At airport perimeters, PTZ cameras capture persons approaching or attempting to climb the fences at any time of the day or night. Thermal PTZ cameras identify movement in all weather conditions, thus also helping to prevent airport operations from being disturbed by people approaching runways etc. Accordingly, the recorded video footage can be used in court as evidence.

Additionally, our Advanced Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) enables self-developed early detection of suspicious behaviour and identification of abandoned luggage. Tracking cameras can help verify or disprove alarms, alerting the security operator as appropriate. A "forensic search" function permits fast retrieval of relevant video sequences.

Access Control Systems

Our IP-based access control system is ideal for preventing unauthorized individuals from entering restricted areas such as airfields and aprons. It supports a large range of readers as well as biometric solutions to meet strict security requirements. Together with video surveillance, this makes it possible to capture and record all access events. Violations automatically trigger an alarm so immediate action can be taken to deal with the situation.

Intrusion Detection and Alarm

Airports also face the risk of burglaries with valuables, equipment, cargo, or personal items being stolen from restricted areas such as shops, luggage conveying systems, and cargo handling zones. We can help to handle these risks as well. This is being done by intrusion systems that monitor all doors, vehicle entrances, and perimeters for unauthorized and suspicious persons, as well as stolen vehicles. If a detector picks up a possible threat, a security operator is alerted that can use our Video Management System with high-resolution CCTV cameras and Intelligent Video Analysis to verify the alarm, activate an appropriate action plan, and support subsequent forensic searches.

Public Access and Voice Evacuation System

High-quality public address and voice evacuation systems are essential for dealing with security and safety challenges. These allow localized and airport-wide gate calls and other announcements as well as integration with airline databases, gate management systems, etc. Modular public address and emergency sound systems of our's are ideal for all of these applications. They can handle everything from routine announcements to emergency notifications – always with maximum reliability and speech intelligibility. Our digital public address and emergency sound system is suitable for even the largest airports as the volume increases automatically when the crowd size in the building increases. It has direct communication between building and the fire alarm system.

Fire Alarm Systems

In order to protect lives and property at airports, it is vital to quickly detect, locate, verify and contain fires. Terminal halls pose special challenges: crowds, high ceilings, large open areas, and long distances to emergency escape routes. Our modular fire panels and detectors are ideal for this and more. They apply multiple intelligent criteria to ensure early, reliable detection – with high immunity to false alarms – and fast responses. A large number of detectors can be connected in loops of up to 3000 m and networked to cover multiple buildings. The panels automatically notify the airport fire brigade, in addition to interfacing with sprinkler, ventilation, and public address systems as well as our Building Integration System (BIS) to fight fire events of all kinds and coordinate the evacuation of large groups of people.

Conference Systems

With their direct links to other cities and countries, airports are becoming increasingly popular venues for conferences of all kinds. Our Digital Concall Network (DCN) gives the best conferencing solution:

  • Interpreting facilities for simultaneous translation into up to 32 languages at once
  • High-quality sound reproduction
  • Choice of wired and/or wireless configurations for maximum flexibility and fast setup
  • Recording of all statements and speeches Building Management System

With all of the safety, security, communication and building automation systems that can be installed in an airport, it is a challenge to efficiently manage and coordinate them all. The Building Integration System (BIS) provides a single Web-based cockpit for monitoring all security, safety and building management systems. This includes alarm management, fast alarm pinpointing via location maps, and follow-up procedures. It also seamlessly integrates fire and intrusion alarms, as well as evacuation, access control, CCTV and building automation systems. Use of the BIS lets a single operator monitor and control all security systems, in addition to enabling faster responses to emergencies and greater overall effectiveness.
