Delivered in partnership with Atlas Security, deployment of Ipsotek’s AI video analytics solutions are anticipated to improve operations, security, and safety across various areas of the Midfield Terminal Building, which is renowned for its architecture and recently gained international attention as a filming location for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One.

The surveillance capabilities of the solution help to enable operators to detect and identify potential threats across various zones of the airport.

By leveraging intelligent algorithms and machine learning, the system is designed to recognise suspicious behaviours, unauthorised access attempts, or other pre-defined security risks in real-time, allowing for swift response and mitigation.

Using Ipsotek’s video analytics solutions, the airport aims to enhance its security measures by effectively detecting abandoned baggage scenarios. Security teams at the airport are said to be able to quickly identify and respond to any unattended baggage, reducing potential security risks and ensuring a safe environment for passengers and staff.

“The deployment of Ipsotek’s AI video analytics solutions at the Midfield Terminal Building signifies a significant leap forward for the aviation industry,” said Sophiene Marzouk, Ipsotek’s UAE Country Manager. “We are proud to collaborate with Atlas Security to deliver state-of-the-art technology that enhances operations, security, and safety in one of the world’s most iconic airport buildings.”

Khizer Rehman, Project and Technical Manager at Atlas Security said: “Atlas Security aspires to implement the best technology for security systems in airports and we therefore look to partner with companies bringing innovation in security applications with Artificial Analytics. One company that brings this cutting-edge technology is Ipsotek and Atlas Security is proud to work in the Midfield Terminal Building with Ipsotek.”

The firm’s solutions are also said to play a role in optimising queue management and crowd control throughout the airport. By analysing video feeds, the software is designed to determine queue lengths and alert airport staff to potential bottlenecks. The intelligent system will empower operators to proactively manage queues, the believes, along with allocate resources more effectively, and ensure a smooth flow of passengers.

As travellers anticipate the unveiling of the Midfield Terminal Building, which is set to open in November 2023, the deployment of Ipsotek’s AI video analytics solutions aims to improve the overall airport experience, for safety to security and operations.
