Security agencies and airport authorities around the world face the dual challenge of evolving critical security solutions while keeping pace with the developments in the air travel industry. From issuing e-tickets to baggage handling to monitoring passenger terminal, technology-enabled safety and security systems form an integral part of an airport’s operational success.
To cater to wide-ranging security issues, Siemens has devised an extensive safety and security system comprising Access Controls, Fire alarm system, CCTV systems & Public Address System.

Fire Alarm Systems (FAS) are provided in the terminal building besides the other 14 buildings monitored by central FAS -system as part of the security concept. The system provides a detector loop capacity of 128 elements. The system itself consists of control panels, automatic smoke detectors, automatic heat detectors, automatic flame detectors, manual call stations, alarm horns and alarm flash lights.
Burglar Alarm system is designed with Hold-Up devices, Intercom System, Intercom system cabinet, Door call stations with video camera, Operator call stations with video monitors.
CCTV system spans across the terminal building, isolation bays and car parks. Terminal entrances and sections of the apron area (passenger boarding bridges) are also monitored by a CCTV-system.

Public Address System is installed in the passenger terminal building for announcements and acoustic fire alarms. Additionally, BIAL’s design is based on the ‘Silent Airport Concept’ where sound coverage is made possible at a controlled 85-90db with high speech intelligibility index and minus the echoes.
