Using the material available in your course and online and/or from other sources, devise a plan for setting up a state-of-the-art airport security system. You
must discuss the following points as a minimum:
The security force – selection, organization, training.
Airport lay-out – suggest a design which maximizes security management efficiency and passenger flow while minimizing discomfort and delay to air
travelers. You may use diagrams to supplement your work.
Describe the system for screening passengers step-by-step as a process describing each piece of equipment used and its function. You may diagram this
system if you wish.
Describe how you would integrate systems for maximum efficiency.
Discuss security management of freight air carriers in brief.
Your paper should be oriented towards a primary commercial service airport in the United States. This is a best-case scenario so consider the budget
funded. Discuss passenger screening in terms of concentric ring theory (defense-in-depth). In other words, passenger screening must consist of at least
three overlapping layers. In terms of system integration, discuss the integration of passenger screening system design with other security components used
at the airport, i.e., closed circuit television systems (CCTV), barriers, access to the airside operations area, etc.
Your paper must be at a minimum of 15 pages (the Title and Reference pages do not count towards the minimum limit).
Scholarly and credible references should be used. A good rule of thumb is at least 2 scholarly sources per page of content.
Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double space.
Students will follow the current APA Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework.
Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, archived
All submissions will be graded using the assignment rubric.
