Technology Innovations Empowering Airport Security (Technical Insights)

Technology Innovations Empowering Airport Security (Technical Insights)

The different types or range of threats that are faced by airports include vandalism, arson, robbery, cyber-crime, fraud and many more. Terrorist attack is the most critical threat in public view. But for an airport operator all of these threats are viewed with equal importance. These threats, for which the probability of occurrence can vary, have different level of seriousness .

Airport security remains a priority for individual countries and international community. The movement over the last decade in terms of global air travel has driven the growth of passengers. This further increases the growth in the security industry. The airport security is being driven threats such as terrorist attacks. The global increase in airport infrastructure and upgrades of ageing equipment continue to offer new opportunities for the industry to provide the latest technology and security solutions for airports throughout the world.

The demand for security from passengers is driving the airport security technology market. Upgrading existing infrastructure and increasing the spending on technology will continue for the long term.

For security procurement, airport operators and owner are responsible, and the decisions are heavily influenced by international and regional organizations such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Airports Council International (ACI).

Some segments, in the technology such as cyber security, screening and communication, offer a wide range of opportunities to smaller companies with specific cutting-edge technology.

The stronger companies will allow airport operators to create more-efficient system which can improve passenger experience and also save some money. Wherever possible, airport operators are trying to cut the operational costs.
