The holistic approach to airport integration

Issue 4 2011  •  8 August 2011  •  Uwe Karl, Head of Airport Solutions, Siemens Building Technologies Division

One of the biggest challenges faced by an airport is how to integrate the various systems that it employs to ensure that the security, the comfort and the convenience for passengers is maximised. The nature of an airport means that it typically develops organically. As the demand for air travel grows, with the megatrend towards urbanisation gathering pace and the role that airports have to play in that process increasing, so airports will expand accordingly.They will build new terminals, expand facilities within existing buildings and perhaps even construct new runways to extend their capacity to accommodate more passengers and freight. All of this involves the addition of new elements to security, fire, electrical power distribution, heating ventilating and air conditioning and building automation systems.

The integrated approach to Airport security

Issue 1 2011  •  26 January 2011  •  Uwe Karl, Head of Building Technology at Siemens (Airport Solutions)

Security has become an ever increasing feature of our daily lives and nowhere is this more readily apparent than in the airport. For the majority of passengers, the most overt indicator is the queue at the security checkpoint as more rigorous checks on passengers and their luggage cause bottlenecks.While passenger and baggage screening understandably remains a high priority for airports, a more holistic approach is often being adopted, one which brings together the different security threats that are faced and deals with them through interoperable solutions using fully integrated systems.

A Fully Functioning Airport… But Where are the Planes?

Issue 4 2010  •  10 August 2010  •  Richard Piper, Editor, International Airport Review

Building an airport is a very complex process indeed. In order for such a large scale project to be successful, many different aspects must come together to achieve the same common goal. So what if there was a way to see these varying aspects in operation under one roof before you begin? Based in Fürth, near Nuremburg, the Siemens Airport Center (SAC) is a truly unique facility designed to offer just that. The objective: to provide market specific solutions to both airports and airlines.
