Regardless of which solution airport managers use, the throughput constraints, labor requirements, and impact to employees often make legacy processes difficult, if not impossible, to sustain. As an alternative, airport managers should look for automated systems. They allow guards to focus on higher priority tasks such as quickly responding to likely threats to help screen against insider threats. In addition, these systems help to reduce the element of human error, as guards can focus on resolving specific alarms. 3.

However, those that strategically balance security, access, usability, and cost can ultimately provide the best long-term protection against an evolving adversary. 4. Harnessing the Power of Innovation — Today there are a variety of innovative technologies available that offer airport managers a number of benefits. For example, artificial intelligence (AI) has the ability to analyze data quickly and identify patterns. This means guards can focus on interpreting results as opposed to watching screens. In a screening scenario, using a system that is powered by machine learning — an advanced form of AI — means the computer can be taught to identify an object as something specific based on characteristics. This means the system can quickly Each airport needs its own flexible solution that can be adjusted based on its specific needs, budget, and risk factors.
