Airport Security Systems

With more and more reports of stowaways, people and things bypassing security and the ever-increasing number of people on airport property, it is important to have a fully integrated airport surveillance system with a top of the line CMS program that can immediately access what you need.

Because airports are under constant threat of terrorist attacks, it’s vitally important that airports employ extremely strict security measures at all times.

Talk to an Expert

If you’re wondering who stands to benefit most from the exciting advancements being made in video surveillance technology in recent years, look no further than the nearest major airport. Today’s airport is more like a mini-city than a transportation hub. It’s a complex environment made even more so by size, traffic, security needs, and operational considerations. The risk in any incident is directly related to the speed at which it can be identified, understood, handled and resolved. The Optiview surveillance solutions for airports addresses the entire incident lifecycle for fast and effective situational awareness, security management and continuous improvement.

Identify. Understand. Manage

Our airport solution integrates all of your security cameras, access control, and perimeter security into a single unified platform. This not only creates a common operating picture but also gives you the ability to anticipate what might come next. It gives you a better understanding of what is happening and provides compliant, effective guidance on how to handle each incident. Advanced analytics both on the “edge” (on-board the device) or on a head-end is a critical component to bring these various strands together.

Configuring Video Surveillance Systems in Airports

Airports feature a number of diverse areas that all demand extremely high levels of security. Optiview’s trained technicians consider the following factors in custom-designing your airport surveillance system:

  • What is the airport’s history in terms of reported crimes and disturbances?
  • What security systems are currently in place throughout the airport?
  • What type of security personnel patrol the facility?
  • Have terrorist plots been attempted or carried out through the airport?
  • Does the airport consist of separate sections linked by a train or other modes of transportation?
  • Does the airport get extremely busy at certain points throughout the day?
  • Are security checkpoints properly staffed and thorough in their procedures?
  • Are there sections of the facility that are considered high-risk areas requiring special attention?
  • What systems or barriers are in place to prevent outsiders from gaining access to restricted areas?
  • How is power and communication tie-in’s distributed throughout the airport?
  • How is employee identification and access control handled?
  • What security measures are in place to protect planes and equipment?

Provide real-time surveillance to multiple departments

With surveillance enabling digital surveillance streams to travel over the internet, either through direct IP cameras and / or NVR’s and DVR’s, or through enterprise servers, operators in various airport departments such as police, customs, fire and medic, baggage, and airport operations, can all monitor the video feeds from separate PC workstations.

Advanced video analytics

Optiview’s Edge Intelligent cameras have built-in video analytics that work with the head-end or on a stand-alone basis play a pivotal role in airport security. These cameras utilize software algorithms to detect specific activities and scan for suspicious individuals. For instance, cameras with facial recognition technology work to help authorities find terrorist threats and marked individuals on government watch lists or any other form of established data base. On-board or head-end behavioral recognition allows Optiview’s surveillance solutions to detect incidents such as left objects, congestion, reverse movement through checkpoints, and cars spending too much time parked in one spot outside of the building. Whether these features run through cameras themselves or through a server, the analytics operate in real-time for a multitude of users.

Flexibility and scalability

Optiview’s video surveillance systems are scalable, meaning they can grow as needed, or as the airport grows. This is particularly important because this allows for accommodation of budget constraints while ensuring that the equipment that does go in is compatible with future additions. Optiview’s equipment is also backward compatible – Optiview systems can integrate Analog, HD over coax, IP, TVI, CVI and any Onviv protocol. Additional cameras are easily connected to the network, and pre-existing analog cameras can be incorporated into new systems by using digital encoders.

Digital storage

All of Optiview’s units utilize the latest compression technology – currently .265. This vastly increases the amount of data stored on a hard drive. In turn hard drives can be piggy-backed within a DVR/NVR or server, and these in turn with other DVR/NVR’s or servers for literally unlimited storage capacity. Advanced search features crunch this data quickly and accurately.

Remote access

Optiview surveillance systems send live video streams over the internet or over 3G/4G networks, where they can be viewed, along with archived footage, remotely from any device with network or wireless access. This allows authorized users to monitor airport activities from off-site locations. Optiview’s video management software adapts to Microsoft Exchange server environments and interfaces with Microsoft’s active directory.


Weatherproof High Definition Cameras

By choosing high quality weatherproof HD cameras, such as the HDCB4M-28, you are ensuring both the security of your job site against weather-related camera failures and against fuzzy footage upon reviewing recordings.

HD-CVI cameras are available with varifocal or fixed lenses and with up to 4K in resolution. Camera styles vary (bullet and dome).

Weatherproof Video Recording System

All HD-over-Coax Cameras offered by Optiview are compatible with our self contained 4, 8 or 16 channel weatherproof DVR solutions. Get up to 64* terabytes for months or years of stored recordings that can be accessed at any time remotely.

The video recording system is housed in a weatherproof enclosure. These outdoor weatherproof enclosures are available with either a NEMA3 or NEMA4 rating and the need is determined by the environment around your oil field.
