The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) Friday deployed a surveillance monitoring vehicle (SMV) to the airside of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos to enhance security and surveillance at the airport.

The deployment of the facility came about a month after a major security breach was recorded at the airport as some thieves carted away airfield lighting equipment at runway 18R/36L.

The multimillion-naira equipment was deployed as part of measures to deepen security at the airport. The SMV is capable of detecting intruders, vehicles and other objects of interest even in adverse weather conditions.

According to FAAN, the motorised equipment can capture images as far as five kilometres.

Managing Director of FAAN, Kabir Mohammed, who spoke at the unveiling of the facility in Lagos, said it would improve security in all the areas of the airport, adding that more of the facility would be deployed in other airports in Nigeria.

Mohammed also said that the equipment would be connected to the two runways; 18 Right and 18 Left for effective performance and monitoring.

Explaining how the facility works, the Head of Project, Glovesly Pro-Project, Aminu Tijani, said the mobile surveillance vehicle came with an inverter and batteries, which could be recharged with a generator.

The Moblile Surveillance system DC-MSS-524-825 is a long range thermal camera that has the ability to detect and identify persons or objects as far as 5km. It also identifies and calculates the exact distance and position of the target using its built-in Geographical Information System (GIS).

The thermal camera works both day and night under any from of weather. It also carries an alarm system that alerts you when there’s target movement.
