Speakers Notes


This is a power-point presentation which is giving a brief overview of what will be covered in the report. The presentation is all about the Access Control Design System, with an acronym A.C.D.S. Mainly, we are concerned with the practicability of the ACDS programme in the developing Hamad International Airport situated at Qatar.

The aim of this presentation is to give the background information on how the automated electronic control access system can be possibly applied in Hamad International Airport. To evaluate this, we shall first undergo a series of interrogations. Therefore, the following stages will be discussed.

Design Concepts

  • Study the literature on design concept: Firstly, we have to understand the key concepts of the security access control systems which underpin the Automated Electronic Operations. According to Bailey, et al., (2003), these basic operations include:

  1. Credential and reader control operation.

  2. The electronic locking method operations

  3. Integration and networking control operations via computer or software modification.

  4. Control design methodology

  5. System Management.

  • The design should permit expansion of services as part of the spare capacity provision, and ensures that all service expansion activities have minimal impact on the facility buildings and operations (Arabian Aerospace Report, 2015)

  • The key points to the making sure that the above can be catered for is through providing systems and infrastructure that are flexible and adaptable enough to the support of the functional operation of the facility and can allow changes to occur without making major infrastructure redundant (Berge, Jonas, 2002).

In a brief, the report that is represented in the power-point will cover the outline of the concept design for Hamad International Airport security development with consideration to:

  • Planning

  • Site Selection

  • Access and Circulation Routes

  • Vehicle Control

  • Pedestrian Control

  • Service Control

  • Parking Placement

  • Credentials and readers
