I have mentioned in this space before that I have the opportunity to travel a lot and that this has afforded me an excellent view into how airports are run. But my perspective is not limited to their inner workings. In fact, from my office here in Montreal, I can see the O6L and 24R runways at the P.E. Trudeau airport. This means that, every once in a while, I get to watch these feats of engineering and technology move through the air. And I am reminded of the incredible precision required to get so many planes safely through take-off and landing every day. At the same time, I also know that any disruption on the airfield —no matter how small— can delay flights or threaten security.
Security requirements at airports are extremely high and it is vital that every area is being monitored including airfield, hangar, car parks, terminal and access roads, runway, apron, perimeter. Dallmeier offers a range of flexible solutions for multi area surveillance and in the movie produced by AOA and ITN they showcase the Dallmeier multifocal sensor technology Panomera in operation at Bristol Airport. Nowadays airside and landside security is a hot topic, and airport operators seek for latest technologies to identify, analyse and proactively resolve dubious situations in time. Therefore Dallmeier video security solutions at Bristol Airport are part of the Airport Matters 2017 program and movie which the Airport Operators Association (AOA) and ITN Productions have produced in 2017.
