Powerful Allies in Airport and Port Security
Airport security is tighter than ever before and anyone there is an expanding list of rules and regulations that have to be fulfilled. Security cameras play an increasingly important role in overall airport security, both inside passenger terminals and in cargo areas. Cameras participate in security checks, record and monitor the passage of people, luggage, and cargo in outdoor drop-off points, in transit to planes, and in final exit from the carriers. They also monitor airplane hangars, cargo storage areas, and taxiways.
An estimated 80 percent of the world’s trade is transported by sea and is loaded and unloaded at ports, making port security an integral part of the process. Video cameras are crucial aspects of port security. Port activities are varied and include container and other cargo transport, as well as use by cruise lines, fishing boats, and other commercial and pleasure vessels.
