With more people traveling each day and airport improvements being undertaken worldwide, increased security measures are needed to maintain such an influx of travelers. This means that those in the security industry are particularly poised to benefit where airports are concerned. However, navigating the years ahead will be difficult without key insight into some of the leading trends and processes.

Visiongain has made it their business to keep their finger on the pulse of the airport security market and they’ve researched some of the key emerging trends to follow in the years to come. Here are some of the exciting airport security measures implemented at key international airport hubs across the globe.

Expanded Use of Advanced Radar Detection for Security Processes

One of the leading trends that shows no signs of abating in the coming years is the expanded use of radar detection systems for security applications. Most often used for perimeter security, radar offers around-the-clock monitoring and visibility in every weather situation while still boasting relatively low installation and personnel costs, as well as reducing false alarm rates.

Easier to use interfaces have been developed that also provide control of multiple radars and cameras, making them particularly useful where alert and exclusion zones are concerned. Compared to ultra low-cost radars and scanners, which have decreased detection ability and more false alarm rates, more innovative technology is quickly becoming the norm for some airports.

Increased E-Passport Usage & Biometric Boarding Facilities

Another airport security market trend developing in the UK is the increased usage of E-Passport technology to travelers from lower-risk countries. This innovative technology utilizes facial recognition software to compare a passenger’s face to the picture they have on their passport. Currently, there are 264 E-Passport gates in operation in the UK.

Biometric boarding facilities are also being adopted by some European airlines, such as Finnair, which has implemented a biometric boarding gate at LAX. The eGate uses a specialized camera designed to capture a passenger’s facial image, then verifies it with the image on file taken at the beginning of the immigration & security check process.

Both procedures make for much quicker boarding and security verification procedures.

Increased Use of Foreign Object Debris (FOD) Detection

One of the leading airports in China has implemented technology to provide added oversight to their foreign object debris (FOD) detection systems. Designed to prevent incidents like bird strikes and foreign objects on the runway, the Xsight RunWize™ technology employs image and radar processing based on artificial intelligence to improve runway safety and efficiency.
