ARINC Showcases AIM Security Suite at ASIS

Annapolis, Md. -- ARINC Incorporated will exhibit a range of advanced systems addressing command and control, physical security, mobile data security, and interoperable communications at the 2005 ASIS Annual Seminar, September 12-15 in Orlando, FLA. New and emerging security technologies ideally suited for mission-critical applications, aviation, and transit facilities will be demonstrated at ASIS Booth 4549.

The ARINC AIM (Advanced Information Management) Command and Control Platform is an open-architecture system that offers perimeter intrusion detection, access control, alarm annunciation, graphics, and intelligent communication alarm capabilities. It has now been integrated with advanced video control and analysis including IP Video Assessment and portable Digital Video capabilities.

“The AIM platform is designed to integrate seamlessly with all of today’s COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) security technologies,” stated Frank Koren, ARINC Business Development Manager, Transportation Solutions. “We plan to demonstrate AIM with a wide selection of the most advanced security technologies being deployed today.”

New biometric identification capabilities will be among the AIM advances featured. ARINC recently incorporated biometrics in several core products, including the AIM physical security offerings and Registered Traveler kiosks installed at Orlando International airport.

For ASIS, ARINC will also unveil a highly capable, portable video display and recording unit with AIM. “This ruggedized, portable, handheld computing, communications, and telemetry control device provides field personnel and first responders with superior, uniform access to mission-critical information,” stated Rich Bredeson, the company’s Senior Director, Government and Commercial Security Marketing. “This information can be in the form of wireless or wired, real-time, bi-directional voice, video, text, telemetry, GPS, and biometrics—including fingerprint and iris scanning used for positive identification. This adds great flexibility and usefulness to the AIM security package.”

ARINC will also demonstrate its unique AWINSTM solution for interoperable security communications. AWINS interconnects all popular types of communications systems—Land Mobile Radio, POTS, PBXs, cellular, video, mobile data, Marine Radio, and more. By adopting AWINS, government, public safety, and security agencies can achieve complete voice and data interoperability without replacing their current equipment.
