AIRSECURE – Risk-based detection and protective filtration system for airports against airborne chemical, biological or radiological hazards

The European Commission, Industry and Research are working together to make your airport safer

Airports are vital to the social and economic development of European countries. To help maintain the free flow of passengers and goods effective security measures are needed to improve the protection against new terrorist threats.

AIRSECURE is a FP6 European Research project that will develop a high security detection and filtration solutions against airborne CBR threats at airports. The two year project started in Sept 2005.


The AIRSECURE system will help to deter, withstand, and recover from possible terror attacks. The improved filtration and detection system can be used to control the spreading of naturally occurring, accidental, or intentional releases of biological and chemical pollutants. The enhanced filtration will also effectively remove outdoor pollutants such as submicron particles, volatile organic compounds, odours and ozone from the supply air resulting in comfortable and healthier indoor air.
