The aviation specific CEM Systems AC2000 Airport access control solution has been selected to secure the new Bahrain International Airport. The CEM Systems AC2000 Airport software and CEM Systems hardware is being installed at the airport to ensure the highest level of integrated security and assist in controlling passenger flow across the airport.

The contract was awarded by Thales and will be delivered by regional partner Tyco Fire and Security Middle East.

Bahrain International Airport is the international airport of Bahrain, located in Muharraq, an island about 7 km northeast of the capital Manama. The airport is currently undergoing a $1.1 billion expansion that will boost the airport’s capacity to 14 million passengers per year.

“This contract to secure Bahrain International Airport represents another significant win for CEM Systems AC2000 Airport solution in the growing aviation sector in the Middle East region,” said Philip Verner, regional sales director, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “The CEM Systems AC2000 Airport has a proven record as one of the most reliable and resilient access control and security management solutions available for aviation security.
