Telos® Identity Management Solutions, LLC (Telos ID), a leading provider of identity management and access solutions for the world’s most security-conscious agencies and organizations, today announced that the Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has contracted with Telos ID to provide Transportation Security Administration (TSA)-approved Designated Aviation Channeling (DAC) services for processing worker background checks at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
Telos ID’s DAC services improve data integrity, increase the efficiency of credentialing operations, and reduce costs. Aviation channeling services enable submissions of workers’ biographic and biometric data to conduct background checks required of individuals working in secure areas of U.S. commercial airports. Telos ID conducted onsite DAC and Rap Back training and integrated with the LAX credentialing management system.“The DAC services deployment at Los Angeles International Airport is notable for its size,” said Dawn E. Lucini, vice president of aviation security, Telos ID. “With more than 54 thousand badge holders, we have streamlined the worker background check process, while upholding the high security standards at LAX in an effective and efficient manner.”Telos ID’s DAC services meet TSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requirements for handling personally identifiable information and, as an encrypted, web-based solution, Telos ID’s DAC users securely access the system wherever they have an internet connection. Its modular design supports each airport’s and air carrier’s needs, and users can perform multiple functions on one platform.“Telos ID is fast becoming the recognized leader in assuring the identities of aviation workers with advanced biometric and enrollment solutions,” said Lucini. “We are pleased to support the city of Los Angeles and its world-class airport in their efforts to provide excellence in identity management services, all while reducing costs and providing superior customer care and flexibility.”

Siemens Participating in Redevelopment of LaGuardia International Airport

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 8 febbraio 2018

LaGuardia-Central-TerminalSiemens is working with Skanska Walsh Joint Venture, the design-build contractors for the redevelopment of Central Terminal B at LaGuardia Airport, to deploy a Siemens Intelligent Infrastructure Solution that includes an integrated building automation and fire / life safety system in the new central terminal complex at LaGuardia International Airport. As part of New York Governor Cuomo’s continuing redevelopment of LaGuardia International Airport, the new central terminal complex is designed to completely transform the airport into a world-class transportation hub that will more easily serve the tens of millions of travelers that pass through the airport each year.The new terminal will be more efficient and safer than its predecessor, which was originally built in 1964. Siemens’ Desigo® CC integrated building management system will control and monitor the building automation, allowing for dynamic control of the facility’s systems in order to react to the changing needs of the terminal’s operations. In addition, the Desigo® Fire XLS-V fire alarm panel with voice capability will be at the heart of the fire alarm system, operating both in the terminal and the central plant.“We’re extremely proud to play such a key role in achieving Governor Cuomo’s vision for a new and modernized LaGuardia airport – and in helping create the perfect place to travel efficiently and safely,” says Dave Hopping, President of Siemens’ North American-based Building Technologies Division. “Our open platform integrated building management system will provide smart building command, control, and communication by connecting building systems including HVAC, fire, energy metering, and lighting.”The new complex will be located closer to the existing Grand Central Parkway, freeing up valuable tarmac space for planes. It will also utilize an island-gate system, which will create nearly two miles of additional taxiways and lead to fewer gate delays and less carbon emissions from idling planes.“The vision for the new terminal includes an enriched passenger experience by reducing gate delays and moving all passengers more safely and efficiently throughout the airport,” says Ted Jadermark, Airport System Manager with Skanska Walsh Joint Venture. “Integrating Siemens building automation and fire safety systems as we build the new facility gives us the ability to manage and monitor its dynamic daily operations with the increased confidence necessary to protect the comfort and safety of LaGuardia’s travelers and, at the same time, reduce emissions.”Siemens has an extensive footprint as a leading technology partner and financial ally for the New York City metropolitan region, helping shape the city’s infrastructure. From transportation to energy and smart buildings, the company’s portfolio for infrastructure includes: intelligent road and rail transportation systems; grid to curb energy supply; and energy efficient, safe, and secure building technologies. Siemens has been taking care of New York’s building technologies needs since 1924, now serving more than 1,000 customers in that industry alone. (photo: LaGuardia-Central-Terminal)
