Behavioral Modeling for Security in Airports

Objective

BEMOSA will contribute significantly to the overall European objective of eliminating hazards of hostile action in the air transport system. To do so it will develop a dynamic and realistic model of social behaviour and security decision making during security threats in airports. These objectives will be accompanied by advancing the state-of-the art in behavioural modelling by direct, multi-faceted observations of group behaviour and creating a dynamic and realistic model of social behaviour during airport security threats. By examining airports throughout Europe and focusing on key decision making groups such as control tower operators, security employees, service vendors and passengers, BEMOSA will deliver the basis for a comprehensive and practical training program that considers all the airport security stakeholders. Advanced software simulations that will help to capture and predict social behaviour under stressful emergencies will provide the platform for the training modules and training packages that can be readily and at minimum cost applied to airports across Europe. This collaborative project involves a consortium of academic, SME and airport end users with extensive expertise in social & behaviour sciences, aviation and security. All are dedicated to modelling airport security decisions whose impact on the maintenance of airport operational continuity is vital. Advancing the of state-of-the art research will lead to increased efficiency of air transportation by decreasing false alarms, increased safety through training and increased coordination for all stakeholders in cases of emergency and security threat. These objectives will be accomplished in a series of coordinated work packages designed so that all partners will participate in a balanced way thereby assuring BEMOSA objectives are achieved.
