The issue of security in the field of airport infrastructures occupies a particularly important place in the current scenario, due to the continuous increase in the level of alert with respect to potential risks of increasingly higher attacks.

Terrorist attacks, vandalism, sabotage, illegal immigration, are on the rise and airport companies are increasingly applying adaptation plans to increase the level of alert, aimed at national security and their users.

The airport grounds are characterized by the following characteristics:

  • Particularly extensive perimeters, of tens of km
  • Located in flat and open areas, there are no obstacles within the grounds
  • Lack of electricity and data network along the perimeter?
  • Presence of moving vehicles within the grounds: surveillance, shuttles, work vehicles, etc.

The protection of such large and busy areas represents a challenge for Security Managers who are faced on the one hand with increasingly advanced attack techniques but also the escape of illegal immigrants through the


AdvanceGuard by Navtech radar is an extremely innovative technology for the safety of highly critical sites . Compared to traditional perimeter security systems that are concentrated only along the perimeter line AdvanceGuard is able to provide detailed information on the position and number of intruders, both in the vicinity of the perimeter and in the internal areas of the protected site with the possibility of verifying the exact path taken, facilitating the intervention of the Security operators.

The approach normally adopted for perimeter protection involves the creation of a protection line along the perimeter using traditional technologies, such as fences, microphone barriers, cameras, underground cables, etc.

This type of perimeter protection has several limitations:

  • The required maintenance activities are very expensive
  • The number of false alarms is very high, therefore the effectiveness and performance of the system degrade over time.
  • Information on the position and number of threats within the site is lost.


From the protection of the perimeter line only to the protection of the entire area of the site.

The solution proposed by Crisma Security involves the use of area protection technologies, such as Navtech Radar Advance Guard combined with SightLogix intelligent thermal cameras, integrated into a single management console. The common feature of these technologies is that of being able to detect the position and number of intruders on the entire surface of the site .

The high coverage ranges (the Radar detects a target up to about 1.5km radius) allow a drastic reduction in the number of sensors to be installed in the field with a consequent reduction in installation and maintenance costs .

AdvanceGuard protects large areas within the grounds with the help of integrated PTZ cameras for visual recognition of targets, cameras Sightlogix allow the same level of protection in the perimeter lines, the suite Smart Alarm provides a single and integrated management console, Anywall allows the visualization of alarms on videowall walls.

The perimeter intrusion detection and wide area surveillance capabilities of our solution ensure that potential threats are detected prior to a raid event, enabling close monitoring or arrest of people by security operators.



Reduced number of sensors in the field to protect very large areas

Protection of the entire area of the site and not just the perimeter, with a significant increase in the level of security

Precise information on the positioning and number of intruders (GPS coordinates) both inside and outside the fence

Use of radar systems capable of detecting targets in adverse environmental conditions without degradation of performance even in the presence of fog and rain

Ability to assess the extent of the attack in seconds thanks to auto-tracking capabilities with PTZ cameras

Optimal vision both day and night thanks to the use of high-performance thermal sensors

Ability to receive alarms and view images in real time directly from SmartPhone and Tablet

Ease of use for security personnel

Low maintenance costs

High level of effectiveness of the security system over time

Extremely low number of false alarms


Over 50 airports in Europe and around the world have adopted these technologies to protect their sensitive areas, obtaining excellent benefits and extremely satisfactory results.

In Italy, Bologna Airport has adopted Navtech Radar sensors and Sightlogix cameras for the protection of its grounds.
