Identifies Elevated Skin Temperatures

Today, airport users may be required to go through elevated skin temperature screening tests at the departure level entrance, the immigration desk and the boarding gate. FLIR thermal imaging cameras such as the FLIR E76 offer the efficiency and safety of non-contact skin temperature screening with audible and visual (color-coded) alarms to warn camera operators whenever a camera detects a person whose skin temperature exceeds a pre-configured temperature threshold. The FLIR E76 offers coverage of near and distant targets through a range of interchangeable AutoCal lenses, with fields of view for everything from wide-angle roof inspections to electrical inspections performed from a safe distance.

Automates Surveillance and Operation Management

Genetec Security Center for Airports enables security managers, terminal and ground handling staff, control room operators and passenger experience managers to work together using a single unified product. In addition to video management (Security Center Omnicast), access control (Security Center Synergis) and Automatic License Plate recognition capabilities (Security Center AutoVuTM), Security Center for Airports features several airport-specific capabilities, including Flight Business Logic to correlate flight information with other operational resources and automate surveillance and operation management based on flight and gate information so security teams are always in sync. Its Restricted Area Surveillance capability relies on multiple intrusion detection technologies (radar, LiDar, fence intrusion detection, video analytics, drone detection, etc.) to detect potential threats across wide areas to strengthen tarmac, aircraft, traveler and staff security.

Provides Coverage in Challenging Lighting

AXIS P3719-PLE Network Camera is a compact 15-megapixel camera with four varifocal lenses that enable overview and detailed surveillance. With one IP address and one network cable, the four-camera-in-one unit provides a flexible solution for multidirectional surveillance. WDR and 360-degree IR illumination provide video quality in different light conditions. Each camera head can be individually positioned (pan, tilt, roll and twist) along a circular track. Remote zoom and focus make it easy to install, and the clear cover, with no sharp edges, ensures undistorted views in all directions. The camera comes with an integrated weather shield. It also features Axis Zipstream for reduced bandwidth and storage needs. Image courtesy of Axis

Integrates Thermal Imager and PTZ for Intrusion Detection and Object Tracking

Vicon’s series of high-powered thermal sensor cameras integrate with a high-speed SN683D PTZ dome camera to detect, identify and track intruders using thermal detection and is combined with targeted surveillance from the PTZ for situational awareness. When a threat is detected, the PTZ automatically slews to cue, providing confirmation and forensic coverage. Detection alerts notify personnel of potential threats. The thermal detection system may decrease the number of security personnel needed to monitor critical areas in traditional detection and surveillance. Image courtesy of Vicon
