12:00 PM Key panel discussion: With 10 out of 20 countries at risk of terror attacks, airports play a critical role in ensuring a country’s safety and security. As such it is no surprise that the airport security systems market is expected to reach US$12.67BN by 2023.
What are these innovative solutions?
The following session will discuss:
- Unauthorised drones can cause airports hourly losses accounting for US$850,000. How can counter-drones help to avoid the closing of the airspace?
- Biometrics, AI, more sophisticated screening processes, effective explosive detection tests and enhanced cooperation among stakeholders to increase security
- Preventing terrorist attacks, narcotics infiltrations and smuggling by boosting countries cooperation and introducing blockchain technologies
