    Aviation Industry

    The security issues facing the Aviation industry are both specific and demanding. Airports are the hub for the movement of a large number of passengers and for the handling of high volumes of baggage and cargo. Even in light of the global recession and the fact that the aviation industry lost about $9 billion in 2010, it is likely that the airports and airlines will have to maintain a double digit growth in security spending over the next 3 to 5 years to meet the increasing threats from terrorists
    

    The Challenge


    As the aviation industry continues to evolve, it faces a unique set of challenges that are set to test the ingenuity and resilience of the sector. From the tough economic climate to the increasing overheads required to meet the ever changing security standards, airports and airlines increasingly have to use technology to help them meet their business goals.


    Common issues associated with airports include passenger and staff safety, managing access levels and cargo theft. All these challenges can be met with an integrated solution from DSS.  
 


    Passenger and Staff Safety


    Passenger safety is of the utmost importance to the carriers as their reputation depends on it and the ever present potential threat to staff due to aggressive passengers must also be managed effectively. With large open public areas to monitor and issues such as unattended bags to track, having cameras positioned effectively and recording high quality images is an essential deterrent. It gives peace of mind knowing that any incidents will be seen on cameras and then recorded onto the Digital Video Management System. Video clips can be quickly exported to DVD/USB for any ensuing police investigation. DSS  Products can provide a range of solutions from standalone access control, CCTV, and remote view systems to produce a centralized control system that can address not only the needs of the security department but can provide crucial information to other areas of the business.


    Cargo Theft

    Effective remote monitoring of ground logistics such as the handling of cargo, baggage offload, etc are all crucial to smooth operations. With an integrated video and remote access system all these are monitored and events are captured 24/7 so high value cargo can be tracked, and incidents such as accidents, injury or theft can be reviewed on recorded video footage.
