10 October 2018
SATS at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) has committed to invest SGB 1 million (about USD 730,000) in digitising its airport security system to enhance safety. The new system will integrate multiple video surveillance points, including wearable cameras, to provide greater visibility of on-ground activities. Digitisation will replace manual processes for aircraft surveillance, the tracking of security activities before a flight, and flight tracking, ensuring greater compliance and higher safety standards. The increased surveillance will enable security personnel to respond swiftly and proactively to any security issues. The new technologies and initiatives will also take into consideration the safety of its security personnel at work. For example, when the body-worn camera is tilted at a certain angle, it is assumed that the officer is down. Enhanced with safety features, it will trigger an alarm and activate live streaming in the control room.
