The International Airport of Weeze, Germany has a new feature in its AEOS access control system to keep people from entering the secure side of the airport
Together with Nedap, Weeze Airport has found a solution for a common airport
problem. It needs to keep people from freely entering the secure side of the airport. As at any other airport, passengers at Weeze Airport leave the airport through sliding doors behind the section where they the can declare goods. These sliding doors constantly open and close, making it possible for people on the unsecured side to enter the secure side of the airport. This poses a potential security risk.
This problem has been solved by Nedap's German business partner GST. GST installed a radar above the sliding doors that controls the direction of movements in the area. The radar detects when somebody walks into the area in the opposite direction. This automatically opens an AEOS interface in the control room, showing live video images via FTP. The motion sensor even works when several people walk into the right direction and a person tries at the same time to walk from the unsecured to the secure side.
