Forum presentation on intelligent airport systems

Thales : 21 May, 2008  (Technical Article)
Thales attends the Registered Traveller Forum at Schiphol with presentation on civilian passenger transportation security systems
Shining again as platinum sponsor of the second edition of Registered Traveller Forum, Thales addresses the community of decision makers driving the development of international Registered
Traveller schemes. The Registered Traveller Forum, endorsed by the Dutch Minister of Justice and by the European Commission, takes place in Amsterdam, at the Radisson SAS Hotel at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, on May 22-23, 2008.

"We're pleased to address the international audience of high profile government and air travel industry representatives that will be present at the Registered Traveller Forum. Thales has an unmatched capability to develop and deploy field-proven safety and security systems for civilian needs and the transport industry market, such critical infrastructure as airports and other hubs of our global transportation network," says Kamel Boussadia, Solution Manager at Thales. "Passenger clearance in the transport industry is a key process with major security implications, where a major effort needs to be made to address the issues of growing numbers of passengers and heightened security consciousness.

"However, passenger clearance is not an isolated issue but an element of much larger and more complex security processes, inherent in all critical infrastructures such as airports and sea ports. This is why Registered Traveler programs will only be effective in their goal to improve security while facilitating travel if they are part of broader and more ambitious projects looking at all relevant airport operations, including border crossing requirements. Security for such large and critical facilities must be, as much as possible, fully integrated and built-in from the design and architecture phases. Moreover, security is not just a matter of choosing the right technology, but stems from a Concept of Operations that makes that technology compatible with all airport processes, concept on which our Engineering teams are now working on, thanks to our integration expertise and large people clearance experience."

Kamel Boussadia will address the audience at the Registered Traveler Forum during the plenary session on Thursday, May 22, 2008. Thales representatives will also be on hand throughout the event to provide information on the company's latest solution and service offerings, on display at the RTF Technology Village.

The Registered Traveler Forum is the first and most significant event worldwide dedicated exclusively to the issues and opportunities related to the introduction of Registered Traveller programs and the enabling technology supporting their deployment.
