The importance of situational awareness

Passengers need to pass smoothly from departures through to the plane, which means pinch points such as check-in, passport control, baggage security, and gate access have to be as efficient as possible, without compromising on security and safety.

All of these requirements make airports, perhaps more than any other type of environment, dependent on systems that are able to maintain and guarantee constant situational surveillance and awareness. So it is no surprise that surveillance solutions, which are capable of providing a holistic view of airports safety and security, can play a hugely important role in guaranteeing safe and secure operations.
Additionally, airport operators know that supporting profitable retail concessions is as important commercially as attracting airlines and passengers. This adds an extra dimension to protecting the operations of the airport, as employees of the airport and retail operations come and go on a daily basis and must therefore be protected.
