"In an airport environment, CCTV systems provide many benefits including improved security, better personnel deployment and assistance with the resolution of suspicious items," said PHL's Federal Security Director Robert Ellis. "The installation of these additional cameras, along with upgrades to our existing cameras, will be a tremendous asset to our security efforts."

The award, which comes from fiscal 2009 funds, will enhance the CCTV systems currently in place at PHL.

CCTV technology is in place at hundreds of airports across the country. In addition to Philadelphia, TSA has collaborated with other individual airports to expand these sophisticated and integrated security networks.
