Agent Vi Boosts Airport Security for Spain’s Iberia Airlines
“Moving to an all IP-based solution required that we look for a highly-scalable video analytics offering that would allow us to deploy hundreds of cameras while eliminating the need for additional server hardware and keeping operational costs down. Agent Vi’s software allowed us to do that, and the analytics have performed extremely well despite the challenging outdoor environment near a busy airport.”
Security Manager, Iberia Airlines
Spain’s largest airline, Iberia Airlines, has a 200,000 sq. meter facility at Madrid’s Barajas International Airport. In the wake of a terrorist attack at the airport, which killed 2 people and injured 26 others, Iberia Airlines sought to heighten security, improve safety in aircraft-only areas, and prevent theft in its facilities.
Agent Vi’s real-time video analytics solution was installed, and set up to detect the presence of unauthorized personnel or vehicles in secure zones such as the runways. It also detects people and/or vehicle intrusion into restricted zones, such as the hangars, warehouses, computer rooms, fuel storage depots and other buildings.
Agent Vi’s real-time, automatic detections have resulted in more effective surveillance, managed centrally from the security team’s headquarters, without the need for regular site patrols. Agent Vi successfully generates alerts for targets moving inside user-defined areas, entering or exiting closed areas, and crossing virtual lines, without alerting to passing aircraft and trucks in the same areas.
