Miami boosts airport security

November 2013 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Transport (Industry)

Nice Systems and Unicom Government (a provider of technology solutions and professional services to federal, state and local governments in the USA) have announced that they are partnering to provide Miami International Airport (MIA) with a runway incursion detection solution, which will enable the airport to secure its Airfield Operations Area (AOA). Unicom Government is deploying the Nice Situator solution for situation management to enhance safety and security by helping MIA improve its real-time detection and response to runway incursions. The project is a continuation of a Unicom-led security infrastructure upgrade at MIA.

The runway incursion detection solution will enable MIA security personnel to detect any unidentified objects on a taxiway or runway, and respond quickly to mitigate the risk of a security breach or accident. Nice Situator is used to integrate video cameras from MIA’s NiceVision video management system, as well as other data sources such as radar, real-time GPS tracking, and an airport first responder communication system.

Situator’s ability to analyse and correlate data from numerous systems creates a solution with multiple layers of verification, resulting in more accurate runway incursion detection with fewer false alarms. For example, if a legitimate incursion is detected by the ground radar and tower radar systems, PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras will automatically track the target while the nearest first responder is notified and receives a still image and exact location of the target.

“Safeguarding our passengers is a top priority at MIA, and our work with Unicom Government and Nice has made the airport a safer and more secure place,” said Ray Davalos, building systems manager, Miami International Airport. “I believe we have one of the most sophisticated security infrastructures in the world. Nice Situator has shown a great return on investment by enabling us to better leverage our existing security infrastructure.”

“Miami International is among the most heavily travelled airports in the world, which makes successful security management even more critical,” said Yaron Tchwella, president of the Security Group at Nice. “MIA’s runway incursion detection solution is a perfect example of how airports can use their existing resources and technology more effectively in order to address a range of pressing safety and security challenges.”
