The protection of critical infrastructure at major airports continues to be of paramount concern for airport personnel, governments, and vendors that supply perimeter technology. After the devastating attacks of September 11, 2001, the initiative has been taken amongst major airports to upgrade terminals with the latest security features to combat future potential terrorists threats. However, as significant government funds are being spent on terminal operations for airport security, so has the focus on passenger safety. However, perimeter security at the fence line is highly critical and pertinent to halt potential penetration of airport runways or terminals areas.
A total perimeter security solutions model for airports, especially large hub types, proves to be the most effective when it comes to protecting critical infrastructure. The areas of airport perimeter security covered in this research service include physical perimeter fencing, video surveillance, access control, and command and control centres.
