Reminder: An Airport Runway Is Not A Safe Place To Drive, Intoxicated Or Not

Most breaches of airport perimeters are of this sort. There is some debate about whether additional signs or lighting will keep someone stoned out of his mind from blowing through the gate or fence line. The TSA is mostly concerned with people deliberately trying to defeat security. Airport management has to be concerned with keeping the airport free of disruptions as well. There are additional enhancements that can be made, however - not that expensive either - that will keep these and other types of incidents from spilling out onto the runway.

  1. Some airports are going to perimeter detection systems that notify the airport is someone is breaching the fence line. A number of these systems are available.

    FFT has a standing wave Fiber Optic system that uses normal fiber optic out door cable. Homeland Security uses this system as well as a number of airports two of which are Dulles International a Cat X airport and McAllen International a Cat 3 airport.

    Others systems are taut wire that sets off an alarm when the vibration hits a certain level, at least one airport in the US is using this system.

    Another is a ground based radar system, much like is use in Israel around the Gaza strip. It has been tried at a number of airports in the US, I am not sure if any are in operation at this time.

    Video motion detection is also being used, and a number of airports are using versions of these systems. Basically you are taking a video CCTV camera and have it monitor an area for any movement. I like these systems in conjunction with other detection systems. Like McAllen airport has video that is integrated into the FFT fence detection system, but the cameras also can alert operators to problems with the motion detection of the cameras as well.

  5. Airport runways should be free from people, free from birds, etc. Keep it free, clean and safe.
