Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN), providing air service facilities to South Central Idaho and the Sun Valley resort area, has implemented Quantum Secure’s SAFE for Aviation software suite to improve workflow of airport security operations.
SAFE for Aviation v4.5 comes with pre-defined policies, workflows and procedures for issuing badge credentials and granting/revoking access to airport facilities, while simplifying adherence to TSA and FAA regulations, audits and security directives.
Daily oversight of security provisions at SUN is handled by the Airport Security Department: ongoing supervision of approximately 1,000 identities including airport and airline employees, in-house and external vendors, government employees, hangar owners, associations, sublease tenants, temporary construction workers and more.
As per government mandates, each of these individuals must undergo a TSA-adjudicated Security Threat Assessment before SUN airport operators can issue any type of personnel identification media. Individuals must be vetted on a continual basis to allow for a comparison of new threat information.
Previously, this labor-intense activity involved multiple data entries of the same information into the various airport security systems, causing personnel to spend more than 90 minutes per person for new enrollments and more than 45 minutes per person for badge renewal procedures.
With the SAFE software suite, data is entered only once and the relevant information flows through to all applicable systems and business processes. It automates processes for conducting background checks, enabling SUN operators to perform new enrollments in less than 15 minutes per person including all related processing such as document scanning and biometric registration. SAFE can also perform renewals in less than 10 minutes.
