Security and fire safety
Keeping terminal buildings and equipment and operating them efficiently are critical to an airport’s viability. Should an incident occur, there must be a rapid intervention. Threats have to be identified early and eliminated reliably, affecting as few passengers as possible – and it’s preferable to prevent incidents before they occur. Whether it’s a suspicious bag, a column of smoke, or unauthorised access – all processes must work together to ensure an appropriate level of response.
Preventive measures such as video surveillance, intruder alarms, access control, biometric identification, and X-ray systems are key components to form the basis of security systems, together with fire safety, extinguishing, and evacuation systems.
However, command and control systems from Siemens look at the demands of an airport including the terminal as a whole – from security equipment to building technology, from fire safety to baggage scanning. And then we build intelligent solutions that protect passengers, equipment, and the entire infrastructure.
