Real-time monitoring for 66 airports: Amit Shah inaugurates centralised aviation security control centre

Union Home Minister Amit Shah inaugurated a centralised aviation security control centre in Delhi to monitor all threats and social media activity for the 66 civil airports currently under the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF)’s security cover. The aviation security control centre (ASCC) will operate round-the-clock, providing real-time data monitoring and trend analysis of passengers and air traffic.

CISF is responsible for guarding 66 passenger airports out of the total 134 operational airports in India. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the ASCC features a data centre, research and development lab, and a war room to handle emergencies efficiently.

To effectively resolve incidents occurring at airports in real-time, the centralised monitoring centre was established due to increased air traffic, evolving threat perceptions, and the geographical spread of airports across the country.

The ASCC will gather real-time data from security operations control centres at the 66 airports, including major ones like Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Jammu, Srinagar, and Amritsar. This comprehensive data will provide insights into passenger traffic and resource mobilisation for optimal utilisation.

Among its responsibilities, the centre will monitor bomb threat calls, VVIP movements, passenger clearance time, security gadget utilisation, and queue management systems at these airports.
