Restrata has extensive experience in the implementation of risk mitigation solutions within international airport environments.

Our team has managed security and airport operations in some of the world’s largest airports, and has designed, implemented and run complex security systems using the very latest technologies.  We have provided expertise across all of the stages of airport development and operation: Master Planning, Construction and Design, ORAT, and finally Operations.   facilities management design and the provision of aviation security training.  We understand airports and what it takes to make them operate successfully.

Aviation Security – Our Aim

Ultimately, our aim is always to provide aviation security risk management solutions that are streamlined to support and complement the business operations of the airports and airlines, as well as enhancing “customer experience” and throughput of those passengers using the airport facilities.

Security Master Planning: Working with the airport operators and related national authorities, to design a security solution for the airport from the ground up.  We will ensure that the final solution meets all of the requirements of the home country aviation authority, and also those of appropriate international organisations.

Threat & Risk Assessment: Overlaying the latest threat picture provided by our Insight Services Team onto any airport environment in order to provide a detailed gap analysis on the provision of appropriate security measures to both mitigate the threat and to ensure the airport meets the required international standards.

Operational Security Audits and Studies: Measuring and testing the effectiveness of existing systems to determine scale and scope of improvements required to meet new standards set either internally, by the operator or by other regulatory authorities.

Operations and Flow Planning: Contributing to the planning of all aspects of airport operation to ensure that security considerations are met at every stage.  Leading flow planning, to ensure that passenger and vehicle flow requirements are met throughout the design and subsequent operation of the airport.

Airport Security Design: Planning of new human and technological security systems and/or upgrade of legacy systems to enhance effectiveness and efficiency. From functional design all the way through to Detailed Systems Design.

Advanced Technology Platforms: Providing superior airport security, baggage & cargo screening and passenger/staff identity solutions, which are differentiated through the use of advanced, leading edge and safe technologies. Restrata prides itself in having in place the right partnerships with best-of-breed technology vendors to ensure seamless and effective integration into what is usually a complex, multi-disciplined airport infrastructure. Some of the advanced system/sub-systems provided includes:

Site Wide Security Solutions: Restrata provides a wide-range of multi-layer site security technologies that include fibre optic intrusion detection, CCTV and video analytics, access control (card or biometric enabled), and command and control room technologies to ensure effective visualisation and information dissemination.

Baggage and Screening Solutions: This can range from explosive detection systems, transmission X-ray and z-backscatter body scanners and baggage screening, through to large scale container, vehicle and cargo scanning capabilities.

Passenger and Staff Identity Solutions: A biometric enabled system provides airport operators with the ability to control access for both passengers and staff throughout the airport, with the added benefit of positive passenger boarding i.e. the right person on the right flight. We also deploy technologies to assist with improving passenger flow; video tag-and-track of a person of interest; identification of anomalous behaviour and high-threat identification and screening.

Within the Restrata team, we have personnel who have played key roles in some of the most complex ORAT programmes ever undertaken.  Ensuring that a new airport facility is brought into live operation successfully, whether that is a new airport, a new terminal, or new areas within existing terminals, is something that requires deep technical knowledge across the full spectrum of operational airport activities.  The Restrata airports team has that expertise.

The management and implementation of necessary systems planning, training and detailed trials activities in each of the essential disciplines; Systems and Security, Terminal and Landside Operations, Airside and Ground Handling, Fire and Life Safety and Facilities Management. Of course at the heart of any successful ORAT programme is effective engagement across the whole airport community; such engagement is at the heart of the Restrata Team’s DNA.
