Tampa International Airport Upgrades Security
Tampa International Airport (TPA) will soon feature the latest security upgrades from G4S Technology.
G4S Technology, a systems integrator and project management company for communication networks and electronic security systems, has been selected to provide the airport with a solution to upgrade the current CCTV system in the terminals, security check points and baggage screening areas. In addition, they will be installing new cameras and emergency phones in the parking garage structures. A new video management system (VMS) will also be deployed throughout the facility with a new video wall in the airport police command center. In addition to the CCTV system, they will be upgrading the existing access control with new workstations and servers. G4S Technology will perform all engineering, deployment, project management, turn-up and testing.
“G4S Technology is pleased to be chosen to support the Tampa International Airport with their security upgrade endeavors,” said Bob Sommerfeld, president of G4S Technology. “We are diligent about keeping their travellers and employees safe by equipping the airport with the best security solutions available.”
TPA is owned, operated and governed by the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority based in Tampa, Fla. The airport averages 225 daily aircraft departures. In 2010, 16,645,765 passengers passed through TPA, making it the 30th busiest airport by passenger movements in North America. They also operate three regional/executive airports in addition to Tampa International. Over the last 40 years, TPA has grown to become one of the preeminent airports in the world.
