Layered Technology Will Be Key To Boosting Airport Perimeter Security


DUBLIN, Ireland - Research and Markets has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivanís new report: World Airport Perimeter Security Markets to their offering.

This research service titled World Airport Perimeter Security Markets provides an overview of the new perimeter protection schemes that are being adopted by many airports across the world. It also provides a description of the future dynamics for airport operators, IT and physical security vendors as well as opportunities for niche security companies striving to penetrate the airport security markets. In this study, expert analyst thoroughly examines the following markets/applications/technologies: physical fencelines, closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras and intelligent video surveillance, command, control and communications (C3) centres as well as interoperable network solutions. The research service also discusses the prevailing industry challenges, future market dynamics on a regional level and the different governing bodies of airports.

Whatís Included:

- Region analysis of airport security based on current and future trends, government regulations and funding procedures

- Future dynamics for airport operators, IT & physical security vendors, as well as opportunities for niche security companies seeking entry into airport security markets.

- Strategic partnerships and alliance considerations for manufacturers and system integrators

Expert analysts thoroughly examine the following market sectors in this research:

- Physical Airport Perimeter Security (Infrared, Chain Link, Taut Wire, Sensors)

- Closed Circuit Television and Intelligent CCTV Systems

- Interoperable Solutions (Command, Control and Communications Centres)

The following technologies are covered in this research:

- Fencing Systems:(including Taut Wire, Infrared/Thermographic Sensing): Fencing systems determine boundaries, deter casual intruders, control access and create delays in the event of intrusion.

- Taut Wire: Wire that is tightly wound around a fence line that signals movement or tampering.

- Fiber Optic: Glass fiber optic cable is used in video signals that communicate between short or long run locations. It is also used in remote sensing, buried under the secure side of a barrier and can sense light movements

- Intelligent CCTV: Intelligent CCTC analyses specific behaviour patterns and algorithms and assesses the scene for security breaches. It possesses capabilities to alert the specific authorities through network systems.

- False Alarms: No alarm stimulation.

- Nuisance Alarms: Detection of stimuli that was not an attempt to enter the perimeter.

- Intrusion Detection System (IDS): Set detection systems and technologies that define, observe, control, and sense entry into a secure area.

- Access Control System (ACS): This manages various combinations of entry, exit and movement within sterile and non-protected areas. ACS is a subsystem that supports intrusion detection systems.

- Next Generation Digital Video Recording: This refers to the video box that records, stores, manages and analyses video streams.

- Perimeter and Access Control: This refers to simple barriers, fences, identity badges and other means of intrusion control, as well as devices that help in access control at airports.

- Closed-circuit Television (CCTV): This refers to the video system of a collection of CCTV cameras and surveillance that act as virtual barriers and assess the situation. The use of television cameras for close scrutiny and observation allows for quick response time.

- Volumetric Sensing: Volumetric sending monitors the physical space adjacent to fencelines for system penetration.

- Digital Systems: Digital signal processing are used to evaluate alarms; characterised by very open architecture systems, large camera installations and a wide variety of technologies.

Market Overview

Booming Passenger Capacity Worldwide to Fuel Technological Upgrades and Growth of Strong Perimeter Security Solutions

Increased efforts to protect critical airport infrastructure following 9/11 have led to increased budget allocations to combat security threats and protect airport perimeters. Accordingly, a proactive approach is being adopted to install integrated security solutions that will be interoperable with new emerging technologies, as well as legacy security systems. Hence, large, system integrators are marking a foray into the security market and forging partnerships with smaller niche companies to offer airport operators greater benefits.

With the United States, western Europe and Asia Pacific nations as well as certain countries in South America exhibiting tremendous growth in the number of airline passengers, airports will require strong, proactive security solutions. The perimeter still remains a vulnerable target for terrorism, which, as history has shown, is highly adaptable, remarks the analyst of this research service. As a result, increased funds allocation is expected towards new technology and protection initiatives, especially in countries witnessing the largest influx of airline passengers.

Layered Technology Solutions to Boost Airport Perimeter Security

In the absence of strict budget enforcement by government procurement initiatives, small and medium-sized commercial airports offer feasible growth opportunities to security vendors to provide cost-efficient security structures. Moreover, to sustain market growth, companies will need to evaluate airport operations on a regional level to determine the countries that are facing the highest threat from terrorism or sabotage at the airport perimeter.

Currently, a greater number of airports are switching to digital networks, rendering it essential to network all security solutions to the main command, control and communications (C3) centre. Further, as layered technology security solutions gain importance, integrated network systems are likely to drive increased airport sales. Interoperable and layered security solutions, which feature open architecture structures will become crucial for existing airport operators, notes the analyst.
