Airport Security - Fused Multi-Modal Systems - (Source: DHS)

Big Data based analysis to become key component of Airport Security systems

Washington D.C. (PRWEB) February 18, 2014

According to the Global Homeland Security & Public Safety Market – 2014-2022 research report, nearly 25% of current airport operating costs are related to the costs of purchasing and running security technologies (compared with only 8% pre-9/11). Despite these costly expenditures, the performance of these systems leaves much to be desired. Unacceptably high false alarm rates, overlooked threats, poor passenger experience, as well as the high cost of personnel will continue to drive the market for high-end technological solutions.

There is no “silver bullet” security protocol or technology that can keep up with the increasing sophistication of the 21st century terrorists. Thus, HSRC forecasts that in the future, multi-threat, interconnected detection modalities that are fused with security and other databases will dominate the market

Some of the detection signatures include:
1.    Passenger background info. (e.g., security and other databases, driver license database, IRS)
2.    X-ray systems
3.    Explosives trace detectors
4.    Checked luggage EDS
5.    Metal detection portals
6.    AIT
7.    Airport perimeter security fences
8.    Airport worker/visitor biometric ID
9.    Smart video surveillance
10.    Cell phone airport surveillance
11.    Black lists
12.    Face recognition standoff biometrics, and more
