Logistics Giant Works With Tyco for Proactive Implementation of U.S. TSA Requirements
- An express transportation company was looking to quickly add surveillance capabilities at 77 U.S. airports.
- Tyco developed a comprehensive, flexible solution that helped them meet the TSA's requirements and more.
- The Tyco team completed the installation within a two-month time frame, and is being considered for additional projects at the company's international airport locations.
Rather than wait for new U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations regarding the electronic surveillance of cargo planes at airport ramps, one of the world’s largest express transportation companies decided to be proactive. The company, which operates through more than 375 airports worldwide, was determined to implement an immediate video surveillance solution at 77 of its United States airport locations. And in addition to the plane’s cargo doors, the company wanted to provide surveillance of the pilot’s entrance
and offer the ability to review activity at the plane from the time of arrival to departure.
The Company relied upon Tyco expertise in transportation security to develop a comprehensive solution that helped them meet the TSA’s requirements and more. The Tyco team recommended Pelco cameras and Integral Technologies digital video recorders as the primary solutions for the airport installations. The security specialist at each location would then have control over all monitoring activity and could authorise video review requests as appropriate. For each location, the Tyco team designed a system employing between three and eight cameras aimed at the critical areas. The number of cameras was dependent upon the size and number of planes at each location. And to ensure round-the-clock visibility, day/night cameras were used.
The Tyco team completed the installation within a two-month time frame, with the new system successfully implemented in every one of the company’s 77 U.S. airport locations. This customer operates in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide and is recognizing Tyco’s ability to service their needs globally.
