Impact of Procedures and Technical Objects on Operation of Security Control at the Airport

Open access


The article presents an analysis of the functioning of the system of security control at the airport. Analysis was made to examine the possibility of disruption occurring in the system after the introduction of controls using additional devices to detect trace amounts of explosives ETD. The analysis has been subjected to the possibility of using different configuration of the technical system to perform ETD control. The analysis allows the assessment of the proposed system configuration based on functional availability indicator.
