Safety Reimagined: Safe Airports

Creating Safe Airports

The Intersection of Technology and Transportation

Today's airports serve as critical infrastructure around the world. Every day, millions of travelers, workers and pallets of cargo travel in and out of your doors. Your promise — ensure the timely arrival and departure of flights while maintaining a streamlined and enjoyable experience for travelers, shippers and your airport's businesses.

But delivering on this promise is only achievable with a foundation of safety. Everything starts with safety. It's the center that holds airport operations together.

Motorola Solutions has created the first and only end-to-end enterprise technology ecosystem that unifies voice, video, data and analytics on a single platform — providing you with the foundation of safety you need by addressing the unique challenges of your airport. It has also reimagined how the technologies used to help keep airports safe can do even more — drive efficiencies, improve productivity and generate better outcomes. Because safety, efficiency and productivity are deeply interconnected. With the right technologies, you can be faster, smarter, more focused and more resilient — better at everything you do.

Because when technologies communicate and learn from each other, safety and performance improve across your entire enterprise. Intelligence advances outward, giving you eyes and ears where you've never had them before. Information flows where it's needed — from cameras to radios to smart devices to command centers — and what you need to know is made clear. People collaborate in more personalized and productive ways, using any network or device they want. Fairness and accuracy replace biases and blindspots. Resiliency increases and decisions improve.

Motorola Solutions' Safe Airports technologies come together to efficiently keep passengers, workers and cargo secure — providing the certainty of safety you need to deliver on your promise. Reassuring staff and travelers that potential threats can be identified and resolved before they escalate. Ensuring that if the unthinkable happens, there are plans and technology in place to respond as quickly as possible.


Overseeing a large, multi-zoned airport can be a challenge. From monitoring secure area perimeters to identifying potential threats, detection plays a critical role in minimizing potential threats to both passengers and airport personnel.

Integrated video security utilizes artificial intelligence to create high visibility across your airport, monitor large areas in one view and recognize potential security gaps. Access control provides entry management, access point detection and automatic notifications for door alarm activities. Automatic license plate recognition, combined with watch list alerting, analyzes vehicles and people entering and exiting the area — detecting potential perimeter breaks. Radio alerts ensure all personnel — across multiple teams — are informed of critical information simultaneously.

All of this comes together to ensure you know what is happening — with better insights to protect people, property and assets.

  • Radio Alert
  • Video Security and Analytics
  • Watch List Creation and Alerting


You're responsible for monitoring a large and diverse facility filled with secure areas, public areas, critical equipment, cargo and thousands of travelers and employees. Scouring through collected data in order to recognize points of interest across your busy airport is a demanding task. Technology can help simplify that process.

Appearance searches quickly and seamlessly explore video footage to track persons of interest moving through your facility. Integrated access control and identity search provide real-time insights into personnel movements, making it easy to find a missing employee. Unusual motion detection reveals atypical behavior and events that need investigating.

Ultimately, these solutions and insights are crucial to cutting through the noise and highlighting important events so that you can quickly find what you are looking for and make informed decisions to take action.

Whether it's a typical day of funneling hundreds of passengers through the airport or an emergency situation, clear and timely communication is key to creating a safe and connected airport.

Two-way radio communications instantly and reliably connect TSA, administration, staff and local first responders. Broadband push-to-x extends your reach by enabling voice and data to be shared across devices and teams. Dispatch software makes it easy to directly share data across devices and teams, including first responders.

Connectivity — across devices and networks — is an important part of ensuring you and your entire team are aware and informed at all times.

Critical Communications

  • CommandCentral Aware Enterprise
  • Dispatch Software
  • Radio Communications
  • WAVE PTX Broadband (Push-to-Talk)


Being ready and aware is critical to ensuring your team can quickly respond to problems before they escalate. Emergency connectivity ensures instant response of first responders to your airport.

Incident management streamlines the logging of incident reports, unifies data and evidence storage, and makes it easy to share multimedia with other personnel. CommandCentral software aggregates information feeds to help streamline incident response with informed decision-making.

Because enabling rapid response and documenting past incidents can be the key to preventing incidents from becoming tragedies.
