Mass Transportation: Airports

Anteo provides situation awareness and situation management solutions for mass transport including airports, sea ports and terrestrial transportation hubs (such as train and bus operations).

Solutions for airports

Airports contain a high volume of passenger thoroughfare, making them an attractive target for terror attacks.  This leads to complex and multi-dimensional security and operational challenges for airport security and operations personnel.

The main challenges airport security and operations personnel have to manage include: 

  • Different types of areas controlled by different entities – terminals (including duty free commerce), parking lots, runways, perimeter, and hangars.
  • A densely populated, non-homogenous environment for which effective security and operations require complex collaboration and communication with multiple agencies.
  • Various bodies and regulations: TSA, FAA, CATSA, CBP, first responders, airport police, local police, etc.
  • Maintaining a positive passenger experience - balancing security procedures with ease of travel.
  • Airport ratings, which are often rated 'best or worst' by their percentage of flight delays.
  • Upholding positive public perception- post 9/11, positive public perception is an integral component of security (or lack thereof) and is the main driving force behind passengers’ behavior.
  • Airport and airline profitability, which is undermined by airport delays and evacuations.
  • Security solutions must be open and highly scalable in order to accommodate self-service, documents free trends and enable future growth.

Anteo’s concept for airport security and operations is based on four pillars:

  • Terminal surveillance including exit gate surveillance, security line management, alarm verification and access control enforcement.
  • Airline operations including plans service verification, resolve disputes between airport and airlines (fuelling times, parking time etc.).
  • Airport land side protection, including traffic terminal access, mass transit platforms, inter terminal transportation, terminal parking and long term parking lot.
  • Airport airside protection including airport perimeter protection, mission critical facilities protection e.g. control tower, “TSA” security check area, baggage handling area and Tarmac surveillance.

Solutions for sea ports

Sea ports are typically used as major transportation hubs for goods and natural resources, making them vulnerable to theft, sabotage, safety challenges and hazardous materials, smuggling and terrorist attacks.  As such, they are facing multiple challenges relating to sea side as well as land side cargo and personnel management; and could therefore benefit from multi-dimensional solutions that provide a holistic unified management solution.

The following are the main challenges that sea port security and operations personnel have to manage:

  • Protecting the sea side as well as land side, as both are very different in nature and operation type.
  • Providing access to loading and shipping docks and thus hosting truck drivers and other external visitors.
  • Transporting large quantities of expensive goods under very tight loading and offloading schedules.
  • Occasionally having to manage freight trains that load/unload inside the port area.
  • Occasionally having the responsibility to transport hazardous materials while located in close proximity to residential areas with a potentially significant risk to human lives.

In order to address these challenges and facilitate sea port management in routine and emergency situations, Anteo provides the following solutions:

  • A unified Command and Control system that integrates all systems and technologies into a single common operating picture, while providing each party with the information that they need to view at the time that they need to view it.
  • Smart integration with radars and sonar systems that provide sea traffic monitoring and zone/proximity based target classification indications.
  • Integration with License Plate Recognition (LPR) systems that facilitate land traffic management according to controlled vehicle lists.
  • Capability to design and implement various correlation rules that make sense of the sensors’ data and filter false alarms.
  • Integration with mass notification systems that can become an integrated part of the response and notify nearby residential areas in case of emergency.

Solutions for terrestrial transportation hubs

Large railroad stations and bus centers typically serve a very high volume of passenger traffic according to a very stringent time schedule.  As a result, they are facing significant challenges related to passenger services and ongoing maintenance of transportation means and building facilities.  Such transportation hubs have to maintain their circulation and notify passengers of delays and schedule changes as a matter of routine.

The main challenges that security and operations personnel at transportation hubs must manage include:

  • A large volume of passengers that present a security risk in terms of terrorism and sabotage.
  • Protection against suicide attempts and other accidents.
  • Constant maintenance activities that affect passenger circulation.
  • Having to protect stations as well as routes.
  • Maintaining good customer service under very challenging operational difficulties.
  • Vandalism in and around the facilities.
  • Having to deal with loitering as well as illegal activities conducted in the facilities.

In order to address these challenges and facilitate mass transport management in routine and emergency situations, Anteo provides the following solutions:

  • A unified Command and Control system that integrates all systems and technologies into a single common operating picture, while providing each party with all necessary information in a prompt manner.
  • Smart integration with Customer Information Systems, Public Announcement Systems and Intercoms that provide effective communication and notification capabilities.
  • Rule based algorithms that integrate Video Analytics together with zone based triggers to prevent unauthorized access to secured and/or dangerous areas.
  • Capability to design and implement various correlation rules that make sense of the sensors’ data and filter false alarms.
  • Integration with mass notification systems that can become an integrated part of the response and notify nearby residential areas in case of emergency.
