Munich Airport’s showpiece state-of-the-art electronic security system is profiled in this article. It describes how a fiber optic ring bus connects the fire detection and alarm system, and how information from these systems is then transmitted to the airport’s information and control system. The article relates the number of security systems, fire alarms, emergency exit terminals, and magnetic contacts that were installed, noting that the size and complexity of the installation required close to two years of labor. Of particular interest is the intruder alarm system which uses digital video image evaluation to detect passenger movement in the wrong direction.
