Airport Security Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report

The rise in air traffic is creating an acute need for an efficient security solution capable of safeguarding the entire airport network, right from the outer perimeter to detect anomalies, to inside the airport to identify intruders and detect suspicious movements. The changing facets of security threats are additionally necessitating the need for security solutions that go beyond the conventional metal detection. In addition to metal weapons, the diversity of modern threats range from materials such as powders, ceramics, plastics, explosives, to liquids, among others. This has fashioned demand for futuristic security solutions, which address all threats on a seamlessly integrated platform, compatible with all routine airport processes. RFID based security systems offer optimal, and dual protection against both criminal offence and operational inefficiencies such as errors in passenger data collection, and verification. Biometric based solutions, i.e. fingerprinting and iris recognition, extend foolproof passport verification, centralized identity management, and physical and logical access controls.
