State Department eyes airport security pilot in Mexico

The State Department is considering installing security equipment in eight Mexican airports as a part of an Airport Security Infrastructure Pilot Project.

According to a request for information, State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs is looking for a vendor that can upgrade airport security with biometric doors and camera systems using equipment that is certified by the Transportation Security Administration or acceptable by TSA experts and Mexico's Directorate General Aeronautical Civil.

State is looking for body and bottle-liquid scanners; a CCTV/video system with monitors, servers and storage for at least four months of continuous video; and access control via biometric locks, access cards and PINs with video surveillance.

The vendor would be responsible for supplying and installing all hardware and software, project management and training of airport staff.
