Airport Access Control & Security Technologies
In 2018, over 4.3 billion people flew on commercial flights globally – this means that there were roughly around 100,000 scheduled arrivals and departures every day. It goes without saying that this is a lot of foot traffic and that because of this airports must meet incredibly demanding criteria with regards to security, safety, communications, and building automation.
With respect to security and safety, the sheer size and scale of large airports can create major challenges, as many different forms of security must exist to ensure the safety of those on-site. These range from an increased human presence (like the TSA & Law Enforcement) to hybrid or fully automated access control and security technologies (like full-body walkthrough scanners). More and more, airports are implementing systems and technologies that help detect and mitigate security risks.
