"Backbone" May Be Moved To New Airport In 2010
A Florida airport will be the
testbed for a new perimeter security system, developed in
partnership with the Transportation Security Administration and the
Naval Surface Warfare Center-Panama City.
On Tuesday, the Panama City-Bay County International Airport
Authority unanimously approved the plan to installed the
experimental Critical Area Protection System -- dubbed "Backbone")
"You will have a very robust core system that your folks will be
using at no cost to the airport," David Vernon, TSA deputy federal
security director for the airport, told the Panama City
The system will utilize wireless cameras, motion detectors and
other sensors along the airport's perimeter fence. All information
gathered with feed into a central operation center.
All parties involved will keep a sharp eye on how the new
security monitoring system performs... to determine whether the
equipment should be transferred to a new, 4,000-acre airport now
under construction in West Bay. As ANN reported, the new
facility -- the first all-new airport to be constructed since
9/11/2001 -- is scheduled to open by early 2010.
There's no explicit guarantee the system will be installed at
the new PFN... but that's a likely scenario, according to project
manager Michael Adams.
"The equipment we have here will transition to the new airport,"
