Solutions – Ports and Airports
Pointer has significant experience in managing risk in security integration projects at major transport hubs including sea and air ports. These skills have been developed with many years’ experience as prime contractor on high profile national and international projects.
The need for enhanced, quality-assured security systems within port environments is twofold. On the one hand, there is a need for compliance with the ISPS code. (ISPS = International Ships & Ports Security.) On the other, there is the need to have coverage stay on top of illegal activity which might take place on site (running the whole gamut from terrorist activity to petty crime) as well as environmental enforcement. A Pointer solution addresses both needs.
Pointer systems also offer:
- Ability to run the majority of the system over a wireless network solution
- Ability to operate as both a locally and centralized managed system
- Ability to link the access control to CCTV
More than just security, it’s about putting effective Countermeasures in place, working to Commercial Best Practice and finally, enhancing your Security Partnerships with Pointer.
Make Pointer Your Front Line
We’re all about long-term partnerships, long-term solutions. We’re specialists, and we’re already undertaking large ports projects at key sites in England, Scotland and Wales.
We have been working at airports both air-side and land-side since 1997. Over that time, the threats have evolved as has the technology to combat them. There is a constant threat of disruption, criminal or terrorist activity and the consequential loss of revenue. Recent projects include upgrade work on the main terminal at Edinburgh Airport and Larnaca Airport.
In the current climate, people are being made more accountable for their business decisions and we already work with a number of major airport clients, both in the UK and overseas in order to protect their reputations, front-line.
