Optimizing time-to-FLY and enhancing airport SECurity

FLYSEC is an ambitious 36 month Research and Innovation project, gathering excellence and expertise from Industry, SMEs, Research and Academia including stakeholders and end users such as major airport operator and international airports. 

Proof-of-Concept at Schönhagen Airport

During the week of 20th-24th February, 2017 the project partners met at Schönhagen Airport to set-up and integrate all technical components and software modules for a Proof-of-Concept.

A week of hard work was crowned with success!  Four scenarios describing typical occurrences in an airport terminal were tested to the full satisfaction of the project partnership, the Project Officer and external Reviewer who attended the tests and guests from the German Federal Police.

The Assessors of the tests came to very positive conclusions as well.

This also includes the FLYSEC mobile app, which was found very useful by the first passengers who had the opportunity to try and also by the staff of security services on site.

The FLYSEC partners wish to thank the large number of movie extras, suppliers of technical equipment and the Airport Management and team who contributed to successful testing as well.

Furthermore, we thank all companies based on the airport for their understanding and patience regarding any disturbances due to noise and unusual trouble caused by our tests and movie documentation.
