SDI Solutions LLC (SDI), the mission-critical IT systems integrator, has been selected to upgrade the security technology environment at the Chattanooga Airport in Tennessee to improve airport safety, accelerate incident response times and enhance customer experience. The contract expands a successful eight-year relationship between SDI and the airport.
SDI will migrate the airport to an end-to-end Avigilon security solution, which cost-effectively integrates existing airport cameras and building/access control systems while adding high-definition (HD) and megapixel camera technology, advanced analytics and advanced storage infrastructure. The company will deploy the contracted security upgrades in parallel with the airport’s existing systems to ensure uninterrupted surveillance coverage. SDI will fully integrate the new Avigilon system with Chattanooga’s Airport Operation Center (AOC) video wall and workstations, and provide on-going support following the installation.
According to SDI, the advanced Avigilon platform will increase the quality of video that is processed by the airport’s AOC, as well as leverage video analytics to effectively allocate personnel and maintain federal security standards.
“As we position ourselves for continued growth, Chattanooga Airport is committed to improving our customers’ overall experience – and airport security is a priority element in that effort,” said Terry Hart, airport president. “This upgrade project – and others in the future – will provide us with the tools to provide passengers, airlines and concessionaires with the safest airport environment possible.”
“SDI is pleased to facilitate the security technology upgrade necessary for the Chattanooga Airport to be on the forefront of security technology in the aviation industry,” stated Brian Glandon, business development manager-critical infrastructure.
SDI is a national strategic partner of Avigilon.
