Copenhagen Airport installs thermal security cameras

FLIR Systems' SR-100 cameras make the airport safer than ever.

With the growing threat of intruders or terrorist attacks, ensuring passenger safety is of the utmost importance to commercial airlines and airport authorities alike. These authorities have the responsibility to safeguard passengers to be sure, but they watch over airport personnel and valuable equipment as well. FLIR Systems' SR-100 thermal security cameras are helping to make Copenhagen Airport even safer than ever.

Founded in 1925, Copenhagen Airport was one of the first civil airports in the world. Today, Copenhagen Airport is the biggest airport in Scandinavia – more than 20.9 million passengers passed through the airport in 2006. Copenhagen Airport the leads the region in international flights, direct long-haul routes and total number of destinations served. Copenhagen Airport is centrally located in Scandinavia and has the most extensive route network of any of the region's airports. As its passenger traffic numbers show, it is the first choice for passengers traveling into, around, or out of Scandinavia.
