Airline Passenger Screening Solution
International tourist arrivals and departures have increased exponentially over the years. With it comes the possibility of increased suspicious travelers who can pose significant threats to airlines and countries. In an effort to improve the detection of suspicious travelers and possible hostile intent, most airports have implemented numerous screening checkpoints at different areas of their facilities.
Challenges and Telaverge's solution
A passenger screening platform is a widely used checkpoint by airport border security authorities. Airlines provide passenger details to the screening application as they book seats and subsequently check in at the airport. The screening application will enable airline authorities to check names against watchlists for suspicious travelers who have been blacklisted for various reasons. The system will scrutinize the traveler’s data, and based on the severity of the suspicion, will send instructions either to disembark the traveler, or allow them to travel with specific instructions.
The passenger profiling system also enables authorities to scrutinize travelers based on travel patterns, networks, and frequency. On high alert routes, where there is a significant threat, airport authorities can use Telaverge’s solution to demand bulk screening of passengers and aircrew. This solution also enables authorities to initiate a further investigation of suspected passengers.
Telaverge played a vital role in programming several features in this solution. Some of the top few are mentioned below:
Data ingestion layer to ingest passenger and air traffic information using IBM MQ into a relational database
Application layer for a bi-directional user interface through a web browser on a user desktop/tablet
Web forms to set up watchlists and rules used by the application to raise alerts for incoming and outgoing passengers
Interface logic with authorities’ API to raise alerts for incoming and outgoing passengers
Interface logic with other airport systems to communicate recommendations for passenger processing
The Graphical User interface (GUI) allows easy but comprehensive navigation and drill-down techniques to maximize the use of available information and expose links that might otherwise remain hidden.
GUI has facilities to manage critical elements such as investigations, persons, correspondence, intelligence, tasks, documents, chronology, cases, auditing, security, and more.
