Aviation hangars face distinctive security and operational challenges due to the high value of aircraft and equipment stored within, as well as the potential for theft, vandalism, and unauthorized access. Additionally, they must ensure the safety of employees and comply with strict industry regulations. Implementing advanced security solutions, such as Avigilon or Ava Video Surveillance and OpenPath Access Control, can provide comprehensive coverage and real-time monitoring, addressing these challenges and maintaining a secure environment in aviation hangars.

Common Challenges

Video Surveillance

In aviation hangars, video surveillance is essential for monitoring the premises, deterring potential criminal activity, and capturing evidence in the event of incidents. It contributes to maintaining a secure environment and optimizing operational efficiency.

Avigilon video surveillance offers tailored solutions for aviation hangars, featuring high-resolution cameras that capture clear, detailed images. The advanced video analytics, including object recognition and unusual activity detection, assist in identifying potential threats and enhancing overall security. The Avigilon Control Center (ACC) centralizes video management, streamlining the process of monitoring multiple locations and accessing live and recorded footage. The system's scalability ensures it can adapt to changing needs and requirements.

Alternatively, Ava video surveillance leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide actionable insights for aviation hangars. The Ava Aware intelligent video management system detects and analyzes unusual activities, such as unauthorized access, loitering, or potential acts of vandalism. This real-time information assists security teams in responding promptly and mitigating risks. The system's compatibility with a range of cameras and hardware ensures a flexible solution suitable for different hangar layouts and sizes.

Access Control

Access control systems play a crucial role in aviation hangars by restricting access to sensitive areas, such as aircraft storage, maintenance facilities, and control rooms. Robust access control measures protect valuable assets, safeguard sensitive information, and ensure compliance with industry regulations.

OpenPath Access Control provides a cloud-based system that is easily adaptable to the unique needs of aviation hangars. Its centralized management capabilities allow administrators to conveniently grant or revoke access rights, monitor real-time activity, and generate detailed audit trails. The touchless, mobile-based access control reduces the risk of unauthorized access by replacing traditional physical access cards with secure mobile authentication.

With multi-factor authentication options, OpenPath further enhances the security of aviation hangars by requiring users to present their mobile device along with a secondary form of identification, such as a PIN or biometric authentication. The system's ability to integrate with other security solutions, including video surveillance and alarm systems, creates a cohesive security ecosystem that provides comprehensive protection.

Customizable features specific to aviation hangars enable tailored access levels and time-based access permissions, ensuring that personnel can access designated areas only during specified times. This level of control helps reduce the risk of unauthorized entry and contributes to a safer and more secure environment for employees and valuable assets.
