Prof. Alan Kirschenbaum of the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, a world expert in disaster management and initiator and coordinator of BEMOSA, will be available to discuss the results of the BEMOSA research on the impact of the human factor on airport security.
BEMOSA has developed a behaviour model that aims to describe how people make security decisions in the face of reality during “normal routine” and crisis situations. This is expected to result in increased security, reduced false alarms and increased profitability.
The findings are based on some 360 interviews of security personnel in eight European airports. Prof. Kirschenbaum will also be able to explore avenues of applying the results in future training programs of airport security personal.
Airport Exchange is jointly staged by both ACI EUROPE and ACI Asia-Pacific, and alternates between Europe and Asia. The event is dedicated this year to “Airports 2020,” and the ideas, processes, solutions and equipment that could be commonplace at airports in 2020 will be presented.
