Solutions for Airport Runway Incursion Detection

The Situation

Loss Prevention Summary

Airport officials are faced with a unique safety challenge preventing and detecting unauthorized entry, presence, and movement of individuals and ground vehicles into or within the Air Operations Area (AOA).

Further complicating the issue, these wide open spaces contain airport and airline vehicle/personnel as well as outside contractors.

The Challenge

Given this complex environment, the airport challenge is to provide incursion detection and unauthorized access violations of all ground movements.

The Solution

Through the use of vTrack™’s real-time GPS tracking technology, airport personnel and vehicles can be tracked with a 1 second update rate. This system provides real-time geo-spatial data (location, heading and speed) for all airport vehicles and personnel and authorized visitors, which can be integrated with 3rd party Command and Control Systems.

vTrack™ allows for:

  • Viewing of all airfield personnel/vehicle activity.
  • The end-user to setup Geo-Fences for real time alerting/notification.
  • Automatic Threat Assessment when coupled with perimeter intrusion detection sensors, such as ground based radar.
