Aviation Security since September 2001

  1. 1.  The number of terrorist attempts on civil aviation has steadily increased since September 2011 Some attempts have been stopped, but the security chain has failed to respond in many cases Weapons and other devices are increasingly difficult to detect, and security staff are not always trained to meet today’s challenges
  2. 2.  Four aircraft were hijacked and flown into high profile structures Based on security procedures at the time, the hijackers’ bladed weapons were not detected Screening for suspicious behavior was also not a common practice
  3. 3.  A man attempted to detonate a bomb planted in his shoe aboard AA Flight 63 Based on security procedures at the time, the hijackers’ shoes were not screened Screening for suspicious behavior was also not a common practice
  4. 4.  Two missiles were fired at a wide- body aircraft Ground security did not notice the set-up and launching of the MANPADs Little focus was placed on the external rings of security
  5. 5.  Volga-AviaExpress Flight 1303 and Siberia Airlines Flight 1047 were destroyed by suicide bombers after departing from Moscow Explosives concealed in the attackers’ belts had few metal components and were not detected
  6. 6.  Terrorists planned to target trans- Atlantic flights using liquid explosive devices Intelligence was the key element of exposing this plot
  7. 7.  A vehicle exploded in front the Glasgow Airport terminal Ground security failed to screen the vehicle despite there being visible petrol containers and propane gas canisters
  8. 8.  An attacker attempted to detonate an explosive concealed in his underwear The explosive device, which contained no metallic parts, went undetected Authorities did not evaluate suspicious signs displayed by the attacker
  9. 9.  An explosive concealed in an ink toner package was discovered thanks to intelligence Ample cargo security screening procedures did not exist in the country at the time of the attempt
  10. 10.  A suicide attack at Moscow Domodedovo Airport arrivals hall resulted in 35 deaths Airport security measures at the time did not include pre-screening passengers entering the airport
  11. 11.  Weapons and attacker intentions are increasingly difficult to detect Aviation security staff and stakeholders must take a more flexible, risk-based approach to detection
  12. 12.  Screening staff must have the proper tools to detect and focus on major threats Aviation security providers must strive to comply with industry best practices Standardized, practical training is needed to prepare security staff for future terror attempts
  13. 13.  Shows screening staff how to detect high-risk passengers and apply resources accordingly Teaches new, predictive screening techniques Provides better screening and emergency response skills Focuses on raising international standards and compliance with the latest regulations
