Client: Newcastle International Airport
Type of works: supply of MFlow Exit Lanes
Human Recognition Systems (HRS) was approached by Newcastle International Airport following HRSs successful deployment of the MFlow Exit Lanes solution at Manchester Airport.
Newcastle was looking for a secure, reliable and cost effective solution to manage the movement of passengers from the critical parts of security restricted areas (CPSRAs) in baggage collection through to Arrivals at their International and Domestic Terminals. They chose MFlow Exit Lanes because it had been proven to meet the needs of the airport and to meet UK and EC security regulations.
The MFlow Exit Lanes solution useing an intelligent surveillance system, can be integrated with existing CCTV and system controlled doors. Passengers moving in the wrong direction or loitering in the vicinity of the exit lanes, triggers a series of alerts to the security team who can respond accordingly and the system generates a series of local actions to prevent progress in the wrong direction.
As part of the installation the HRS project team worked closely with the Newcastle Management and Project team to ensure that the MFlow Exit Lanes solution met all operational requirements and that all the user groups including UKBA Customs, passengers and airport staff were inducted in the new processes and that the strict security policies were met.
