Today’s exponential growth of air traffic presents the ever-increasing challenge of instituting and maintaining safe and smart airport security.

Current security challenges require solutions that are comprehensive and seamless. Magal provides fully integrated, end-to-end smart security solutions for airports, completely customized based on individual airport requirements.

Multi-Layer Security Solutions

Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems

Securing an airport’s perimeter is equally important as terminal security. Magal offers a full range of perimeter intrusion detection (PIDS) products and solutions. All of Magal’s internally developed “smart fence” technologies, as well as any additional third-party system, can be fully integrated into a video management system and command and control platform. Magal sensors detect and locate intrusion attempts with very high probability of detection (Pd) and minimal nuisance and false alarm rates (NAR/FAR). Sensors are designed to detect multiple simultaneous intrusions with disturbances at different locations reported autonomously.

Verification and Tracking

Identifying perimeter breaches is a vital component of any airport security solution. Magal uses human and vehicle detection radars, long and medium range surveillance, as well as thermal, daytime, and PTZ cameras integrated with smart fence technology, to offer the most comprehensive verification and tracking system available.

Inner Layers and Access Control Security

Securing operational areas, hangars and restricted areas is key to maintaining high-level airport safety. Magal offers a multi-faceted approach to protecting sensitive areas by controlling access with License Plate Recognition (LPR), Biometrics, and Face Recognition analytics, as well as physical deterrents such as bollards and anti-terror gates.

Dynamic Command & Control

Magal’s command and control capabilities provide- holistic integration of an airport’s security and operational systems into one comprehensive, high availability platform. Magal’s FORTIS 4G fully integrates video management, advanced debriefing capabilities and video tracking, as well as privilege and access hierarchy, allowing operators and authorized personnel to make effective decisions based on real-time events, recognized threats or identification of suspicious individuals.

Magal Security Systems enables airports to stay ahead of any accelerating and potentially adverse incident, optimize passenger experience and immediately respond to emergencies. Additionally, Magal’s smart airport solutions provide invaluable detection and real-time information, improving performance of queue management, dynamic light control and personnel allocation.
