ADT to provide access control and video for major airport in India

Tyco systems integration firm ADT Security has landed the contract for security services at Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. The company will be providing access control and video surveillance systems for the 500,000-square-meters terminal, which is expected to open in the spring of 2010. The airport is said to see 60 million passengers per year.

ADT said it will be installing a CEM Systems AC2000 Airport Edition access control system. The system is said to feature such options as multi-technology cards with onboard database, web interfaces and ability for the system to work offline. ADT also said it will be using IP video for the surveillance solution for the terminal, which will extend to the multi-level and surface carpark and the metro. The access control and video systems will be integrated together, according to ADT Security India's General Manager Wee Soon Chee.

The security systems are also expected to support operations at the airport like vehicle management, airbridge monitoring, check-in desk and passenger reconciliation.

Both systems are expected to be in place by the end of this year. The contract is worth $9.3 million in U.S. funds.
