Washington Dulles Security Upgrades

G4S Secure Integration completed the installation of a complete intrusion detection system along the existing western perimeter of the airport

Washington Dulles International (IAD) is located in Chantilly, Virginia on 12,000 acres of land 26 miles from downtown Washington, DC. Opening in 1962, Dulles is a major hub for domestic and international air travel with a mixture of legacy and low fare carriers providing air service throughout the world.

In 2010, United Airlines maintained its East Coast hub at Dulles and handled 56.7 percent of scheduled air carrier passengers at the airport. Dulles has 143 gates and 14 hard stand locations from which passengers can board or disembark using the airport’s trademark PlaneMate airfield vehicles. On a typical day, Dulles sees 1,000 to 1,200 flight operations.

G4S Secure Integration completed the installation of a complete intrusion detection system along the existing western perimeter of the Washington Dulles International Airport. The project began in mid-October 2009 and was completed in March of 2010.
