CISF Dogs At Airports Will Be Soon Replaced By Robotic Ones

CISF still depends on dogs and human for security ensuring. In this article, their efforts to alter this by using new technologies will be displayed.

Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) in German, Labrador and Belgian Malinois often uses sniffer dogs to support security activities at airports. However, now they may be replaced by technological canines.

According to CISF officers, these canines are not only able to do an X-ray scan but also useful to sniff explosives by their noses.

The application of industrial dogs was first spotted at the 2018 Global Aviation Security Symposium organized in Montreal, Canada, with attendance of CISF DG Rajesh Ranjan and DG MA Ganapathy, who responsible for India aviation security.

At present, high resourced countries such as the US, the UK, Japan, Canada, Korea have employed robotic devices at airports on several processes, including passenger data and safety checks.

CISF authorities said that they went to the universal aviation conference hold by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) last week and had a productive ally consultation with EU nations as well as other members of ICAO. “We already have a tie-up with Transport Security Administration (TSA) of the United States but now we have a capacity building pact with the EU as well, which will help us explore a lot about new technologies and methods of securing our airports,” said an authority.

In addition to robotic dogs, other alternative technologies were also put into discussion, including CT scanners for baggage check, artificial intelligence, advanced explosive detectors, and biometric access control systems.

The Indian government has been overinvesting on people to ensure security, especially at airports. That is the reason why they need to have new technologies which are able to reduce the crime rate in aviation sector while encouraging the growth of air transportation.

CISF, owning the largest security system of South Asia, has already set up biometric devices at some airports together with body scanners. Other important locations are also under their protection, such as the Delhi Metro station, space and nuclear systems, government buildings and fuel facilities where security is the first priority.

An authority revealed that unification of ICAO members is a regular topic of the conference. This means the replacement of technological devices has to be expanded to get more protection in the future.

Additionally, solutions for emerging threats was discussed in a two-day conference, which resulted in an agreement among ICAO members on the demand for human resources training and application of an improved security system.

The aviation specialists also expressed a desire to create a risk-based security policy for better aviation safety.

Hemendra Singh, the spokesperson of CISF, indicated in the conference that a new security program, named Global Aviation Security Plan (GASeP), had been introduced and considered.

During discussions among countries, CISF also emphasized their opinion on important infrastructure protection from both hijacking and terrorism, he added.
