Security and automatic passenger processing systems in modern terminals design

Qasim Mohammed Basim


In this article a new solutions and systems presented to design a fully automatic controlled terminals, starting from how to maximize the security level and automatic central control the terminal faculties accesses and  control the passengers flow, to make a short-timed path in the terminal by automatic gates and doors without human intervention, increasing the passnegers flow and minimize the long waiting time of the security screening in the airports, forming a terminal with an open space design without partitions and clear paths for passengers, reducing the working staff and  reusing the planned spaces in the terminal for the staff  to another uses and functions.
