Robin Hood Airport
Robin Hood Airport is the UK's newest purpose built international airport. Representing a £80 million development, the airport is built on the site of the former RAF Finningley airbase and is reported to be the first full service international airport to be built in Britain in the past 30 years. Boasting one of the UK's longest runway's, commercial flights commenced April 05.
To protect the two million passengers projected to pass through Robin Hood Airport each year CEM was approached to supply its aviation leading AC2000 AE (Airport Edition) access control system and its Passenger Reconciliation system, with CEM approved reseller Advance Integrated Systems (AIS) appointed security installers for the project. AC2000 AE is installed at over 80% of the UK's airport's and has a proven record as one of the most reliable and resilient airport security solutions available. In addition to installing the CEM access control system, AIS also provided digital voice alarm, induction loop systems and ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) systems as well as an extensive CCTV system which seamlessly integrated with the AC2000 AE system.
"The CCTV System coupled with CEM's impressive access control system, equips Robin Hood Airport with one of the most comprehensive integrated security systems available at any airport,"
Stephen McCay, Sales & Technical Director, AIS.
