Transcript of The Global Airport

The Global Airport
By Elise, Jess and Hannelore
ICT is used a lot when it comes to tickets. They are created on the computer and then printed out depending on the seat, the flight, the time etc. Tickets are important because they clearly indicate what flight you should be one,and when and where you should be on it. They are often called boarding passes. You can order them online or you can get them at the desk at the airport.
A lot of tickets have bar codes on them , these are then scanned using a bar code scanner which inputs data into a computer or a till .Some bar codes can be used to redeem gifts in the departure lounge.

You can now check in to a flight using a smart phone, all it takes is a QR code . To get it to work you have to point your devices camera towards the code. Once scanned the code linked to relevant information about the product. Most smartphones are now equipped with a QR code reader, it is also available to download. This can make boarding easier.
How it works
The airline sends you a boarding document, with a link to your QR code.
You click the link to receive the code.
Anytime you need to present your boarding pass, you have to hold up your phone with the code on, to the scanner, it will read the information.
The mobile boarding pass, is a new initiative which stores passenger information on an electronic database.
Why is this so helpful?
The electronic database helps to save the airport money, as less jobs will be needed and the system is more effective and reliable.
QR Code Reader
Advanced Imaging Technology:
Resources are saved, which includes paper and cardboard.
But most of all, there will no longer be any worries of forgetting tickets because everything that is needed is at a click of a button.
Safely screens passengers for metal or non-metal objects that are dangerous, such as weapons and explosives, which may be concealed under clothing. This screening helps keep the staff and the public safe.
Consists of retinal scans, fingerprint identification, etc... They are fast becoming an important part of our risk-based approach to security.
It allows security to identify that a person is who they say they are, by using identity checks.
Bottled Liquids Scanners
A sophisticated computer program produced this “map” of the air pressure changes on a Boeing 747 jetliner traveling at 84 percent of the speed of sound. The lines link points of equal pressure. Red shows higher pressure; green shows lower pressure.
Explosives Detection System
Through a sophisticated analysis of each bag that goes through security) the EDS can easily and quickly capture an image of a single bag and determine if that bag contains a potential threat. If a bag needs further screening, it may be automatically taken to a resolution room, where members of security will check the bag to ensure that it does not contain a threat item. Once the bag has been checked, it's then sent onto the aircraft.

Explosives Trace Detection
It is a type of technology used at security checkpoints around the country to screen baggage and passengers for any threats of explosives. Passengers are screened by a swab, and their hands could also be screened for any trace of explosives, either in the queue waiting to go through security or boarding areas. It is used at a completely random basis, so passengers won't always experience it, or even see it.
Paperless Boarding Pass
It enables passengers to download their boarding pass onto their phone or other hand-held devices. It makes it easier for passengers to access, (and there is less stress when at the airport) and it is a much faster process. Also the detection system can easily pick out any fraudulent passes.
Each paperless boarding pass is displayed as an encrypted 2D bar code, as well as flight and passenger information.
Security officers use scanners to authenticate each boarding pass, and the passengers carrying them.
Threat Image Projection
They are used across the globe by transportation/security officers, to detect any liquid/gel threats carried on passengers/in passengers' baggage. This technology can tell the difference between common liquids; i.e. water or medicinal, and real threats; i.e. explosives.
They use a variety of different types of technology; i.e. lasers and infrared. The technology can also screen clear or coloured plastic or glass bottles.

Credential Authentication Technology

automatically authenticates identity documents presented by passengers during the security checkpoint process

It is predominantly used to give security members on-the-job training, as well as their other multiple courses that are compulsory. The security officers are routinely tested on their abilities to detect weapons/explosives using the X-ray machines. Potential threats are projected onto the X-ray machines of carry-on bags so that security officers remain focused and attentive.
Air traffic control:
The distance between planes on landing and take off is determined by air traffic controllers.
In the future, their control systems, consisting of 3d radar, real-time position feeds from the planes themselves along with advanced computer systems will together allow the controllers to safely bring the planes a bit closer to increase flying capacity.
