Airport Viz – A 3D Tool to Enhance Security Operations

Problem Statement:

  • Airport security personnel needed an easy-to-use tool to investigate passenger checkpoint designs, baggage inspection procedures, and SIDA operations.

Technical Approach:

  • Using a scalable simulation and 3D visualization engine, capable of running on a laptop or high-end graphics workstation, Airport Viz allows a number of alternative designs to be studied.


  • Airport Viz allows a security specialist with minimal computer graphics skills to improve checkpoint hroughput without compromising security. Its extensive device and airport layout library may be expanded by the end-user in a simple fashion.
