Critical Part Airport Monitoring

It can be hard to monitor the critical areas of complex and sensitive sites, such as airports. Physical barriers are often inappropriate or disruptive (for example, by the CP Line or where many staff members need access) and the use of human guards can be costly. However, with its 360º scanning radar, intelligent rules-based system and ability to operate in all light and weather conditions, AdvanceGuard provides an effective solution to a tough problem.


AdvanceGuard provides 24/7/365 CP Line airport security

AdvanceGuard recognises and patrols the boundaries of your CP Line or other critical part, and will monitor both sides of this perimeter in all weather and light conditions, including darkness. AdvanceGuard’s rules-based system differentiates vehicles from people, and unique ‘friend or foe’ integration tells you immediately whether an intruder is authorised or not. AdvanceGuard analyses behaviour within the critical part; anything that breaches the rules you have set will generate an alarm, while AdvanceGuard tracks unlimited targets. It is easy to integrate AdvanceGuard with third-party cameras and video management for continuous visual information, and you can add ADS-B for legitimate activity recognition.

How does AdvanceGuard monitor airport's critical areas?

Why airports trust advanceGuard

Using a combination of 360º scanning radar sensors and intelligent, rules-based software, AdvanceGuard constantly monitors both sides of the perimeter and distinguishes legitimate activities, people and objects from illegitimate events.
AdvanceGuard alerts you when a real threat enters an alarm zone. It can detect and track unlimited targets simultaneously and categorises each target by type, speed, size and direction of travel. Data can be recorded for analysis and verification. 

How is AdvanceGuard used for airport CP line monitoring?

  • ADS-B

Integration with ADS-B enriches the situational awareness on site. Security teams can see the exact location of aircraft on their site and know  which aircraft they are, providing high levels of information and keeping nuisance alarms from legitimate aircraft (and in some cases airport vehicles) to a minimum. With friend or foe, it’s the best system you can have for monitoring your CP line. Find out more about ADS-B.

  • Cost effective solution

Installing AdvanceGuard eliminates the excessive need for manned guards. Guards can instead use their time more effectively. Because of its large coverage area, few sensors need to be installed for critical part monitoring, saving money on initial purchase. The hardware can also be installed onto exisiting infrastructure, 

  • Low false alarm

The intelligent system will only generate an alarm when presence in the critical part areas is considered a threat. This keeps false alarms to a minimum, maintaining high levels of operator vigilance, and avoiding nonessential airport disruption. 

  • Real-time threat analysis 

Pin points the exact location of intruders approaching the critical part zone, tracking their direction of movement and speed throughout the event. This provides accurate data for fast response.

  • Reliable detection and tracking

High-resolution radar differentiates target size, meaning it can filter out small animals or permitted persons and vehicles crossing the critical part boundary. This keeps false alarm rates low.

  • Fully automated operation

Intuitive interface. The system controls cameras, relays and other sensors. It integrates with bulk SMS providers ans security/video management systems.
