Point FWD Aviation Security Advisory and Data Handling Services

Point FWD offers data-driven advisory services, aviation security processes and data-handling solutions to governments, international aviation organisations, airports, and manufacturers worldwide.

The company provides a range of services, including research, operational and design consulting, and project management, as well as innovative products, service and support.

Specialised aviation security research and innovation

Point FWD specialises in consulting services based on in-depth knowledge and extensive data analysis.

As an established independent company, Point FWD has developed its knowledge to offer research-based services to its clients. This includes impact studies for upcoming or changing legislation, as well as market research for screening, evaluation and comparison of new technologies.

To allow airports to develop and improve security services, the company provides guidance for innovation whether it is a major development or a small change. Some of these services include functional or operational testing of equipment and processes, security concept development, as well as offering guidance for European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) approval.

Point FWD assists airports integrating cross-industry technology into aviation security, as well as supporting manufacturers to develop specialised equipment.

Operational and design consulting for aviation security

The company combines information from its data-handling suite with the .FWD Approach for its operational consulting service. It provides a complete analysis of the airport security procedures and highlights changes that can be made to improve operations.

Understanding the surroundings using a questionnaire and a facility tour is the initial stage of the .FWD Approach, followed by establishing a baseline using local data sources and the company’s industry data-gathering tools. Point FWD’s methodology stage includes implementing minor changes that could create a significant improvement, as well as ensuring that teams persevere.

Point FWD’s expertise allows the company to provide consulting services for the functional design of airports, including security checkpoints. The company conducts interviews with stakeholders to gain an understanding of the requirements based on functional, financial and environmental factors.

This is followed by data collection to define possible project limitations and offer advice on future designs.

Project management and service for airport security implementation

Point FWD provides project management for airport consultation projects, collaborating with equipment manufacturers to implement high-quality products and support checkpoint solutions.

The company has developed its project management service based on its innovation, design, modelling, and operation expertise within airport security processes. Integration of equipment such as modern passenger and baggage screening, access control, as well as complete security lane configurations is included in Point FWD’s project management service.

Service and support is provided as the final step in the implementation of airport security solutions to ensure optimal operation of the technology. Point FWD’s services include communication processes, support process and maintenance setup, quality assurance, data analysis, as well as load testing and regular checks.
