AIRPORT SECURITY SOLUTIONS
Airport security represents the number one operating cost within the airport industry, and yet new security requirements can appear often without warning and on top of other onerous and uncoordinated regulations.
The challenges airports face represent a potential compromise to the free flow of passenger and vehicle traffic in an environment that relies upon 24 hour synchronised movements. Delays and shutdowns in airports translate into millions in lost revenues for airlines, operators and all of the businesses supporting them.
Large numbers of people pass through airports every day. This presents potential targets for terrorism and other forms of crime because of the number of people located in a particular location. Similarly, the high concentration of people on large airliners, the potential high death rate with attacks on aircraft, and the ability to use a hijacked airplane as a lethal weapon may provide an alluring target for terrorism, whether or not they succeed due their high profile nature following the various attacks and attempts around the globe in recent years.
Airport security attempts to prevent any threats or potentially dangerous situations from arising or entering the country. If airport security does succeed in this, then the chances of any dangerous situations, illegal items or threats entering into both aircraft, country or airport are greatly reduced. As such, airport security serves several purposes: To protect the airport and country from any threatening events, to reassure the traveling public that they are safe and to protect the country and their people.
We provide capabilities to help detect and deter criminal acts including:
- Risk and vulnerability assessments
- Airport security systems
- Smart cards and biometrics
- Weapon, explosive, drug, and cargo detection systems

Armos’ methodology and procedural tools for Airport Security considers factors like: threat, target identification, aggressor types, malevolent acts of concern, and consequences of a successful attack.
Assessments typically focused on a variety of threats and evaluation of all security-related aspects of the facilities including:
- Guard services
- Electronic security measures
- Access controls
- Employment of closed-circuit television
- Alarm systems
- Information Security
AIRPORT SECURITY SYSTEMS INTEGRATION, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
Armo has experienced staff familiar with airport environments, regulations and security challenges. Experienced Armo’s project managers are supported by registered Professional Engineers (PE) and RCDDs that are up to date on all the latest technologies and their deployments within varying environmental conditions.
Armo is a vendor neutral designer and systems integrator providing the following types of services:
- Security Master Plan
- Security systems design and construction management
- Systems integration
- Access Control Systems
- Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance
- Video analytics
- Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS)
- Command and Control Centers
- Computer Aided Dispatching
- Asset management/monitoring
- Communications infrastructure
Being vendor neutral, Armo considers the customer’s interest in deploying the best proven solutions and product set to accommodate the project’s needs. Technology is constantly improving and Armo tests and integrates these systems in our facilities to validate manufacture performance and test interfaces between disparate systems.
SMART CARDS AND BIOMETRICS
Smart Cards can be used to store essential personal data, to document time and attendance information, and to support inventory control measures.
Through the use of Smart Cards for access to secured buildings, computer equipment, and applications, tighter control can be exercised and metrics for ROI can be easily generated. In addition, Smart Cards can be used for security-records management, accessing required security information and forms, and for access to personal banking information from remote locations, such as ATM transactions aboard ship.
Armo implemented Smart Card systems include:
- Common Access Card (CAC)
- The Public Key Enabled (PKE) System
- The Personnel Security System (PSS)
- Navy Cash Card
Armo Electronics also has substantial expertise within the field of biometric technology implementation and integration. Armos’ biometrics work encompasses the integration of identification and verification capabilities into new and existing systems. This integration then allows even legacy systems to perform secure system sign-on/sign-off, data administration, application access, electronically signed transactions, and facility access via secure biometric verification.
Armos implemented Biometrics systems include:
- Iris identification technology
- Digital and sonar fingerprints
- Hand geometry
- Retina eye patterns
- Digital facial recognition – MorphoWay
- Voice recognition
- Database technologies
EXPLOSIVES DETECTION SYSTEMS (EDS) FOR CHECKED BAGGAGE
Armo provides baggage inspection systems using computed tomography (CT) x-ray technology and advanced material-analysis algorithms to automatically detect a wide variety of explosives. These scanning systems meet the world’s toughest EDS standards, including US TSA, EU ECAC, and Israel ISA.
These systems also provide detailed images for visual inspection. Color coding highlights potential threats, 3D images let inspectors view objects from any angle, and CT “slices” provide an extremely detailed view.
Armo recommended Explosives Detection systems can meet a variety of operational requirements, including high throughput, integrated or standalone operation, small footprint, and oversize baggage.
(CT) x-Ray systems are the choice of TSA and other transportation agencies around the world.
