Thursday, April 21, 2016

(USTDA)  ARLINGTON, Va. – Today, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency awarded a grant to National Company Bucharest Airports S.A. (BANC) for a feasibility study that will bolster airport security at the country’s largest airport, Bucharest Henri Coanda (Otopeni) Airport. The project will deploy information and telecommunication solutions to help BANC monitor and manage its operations more efficiently.

“These upgrades will lead to a world class IT and security system at Bucharest Henri Coanda (Otopeni) Airport, creating a more safe and efficient system for travelers passing through the airport,” said USTDA Deputy Director Enoh T. Ebong.

The feasibility study will evaluate the existing technology systems and prepare BANC to integrate IT systems, databases, hardware, software and personnel into one centralized and coherent system, which will be able to analyze and communicate data in real time. “This study will enable our organization to attain its goals in security optimization, upgrades and streamlined operations,” said BANC Director General Sorinel Ciobanu.

The Bucharest Airport Information Technology and Security Integration grant was signed by USTDA Deputy Director Enoh Ebong and BANC Director General Sorinel Ciobanu at USTDA’s office in Arlington, V.A.
