PHOENIX: Aspen-Pitkin County Airport (ASE) in Colorado has selected Ottawa-based Searidge Technologies to provide an intrusion detection solution for the perimeter adjoining the airport’s movement and non-movement areas. The airport said the area is a hot spot for vehicle and pedestrian deviations; when a person or vehicle crosses from the non-movement to the movement area without air traffic control clearance the incident is documented as a vehicle/pedestrian deviation. Searidge will provide the airport with their intelligent video platform IntelliDAR to automatically alert airport operations and security personnel of an intrusion.

“We are extremely pleased to be working with Aspen-Pitkin County Airport to solve their incursion problem,” said Moodie Cheikh, CEO of Searidge Technologies. “Our intelligent video platform has been proven in a variety of air traffic control and airport applications and its versatility and adaptability enables us to effectively address Aspen’s specific aviation security needs.”

The Searidge intrusion detection solution is a scalable system that automatically monitors and depicts all targets in the area of interest to the security personnel in real-world LAT/LONG positions on a 2D map display. The system provides the security operator with features such as intrusion detection and tracking, audible and visual alerts, real-time video feeds of the target and video archiving for incident review, investigations and training. This data helps to ensure all intrusions are identified, giving advanced warning to security operators to act on alerts immediately.
