Hirsch Electronics, a business unit of Identive Group Inc. announced that Lars Suneborn, director of the Government Program Group for Hirsch, will lead the RTCA (Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics) Subcommittee SC 224 effort to update the RTCA DO230 Integrated Security System Standard for Airport Access Control.
A thirty-year veteran of the identity management and access control industries, Suneborn will lead the subcommittee through a complete overhaul and revision of physical access control system performance standards for the U.S. air transport industry.
Last updated in February 2008, these standards provide guidance to airports nationwide on the implementation of airport staff security systems including identity management and credentials, physical access control, intrusion detection and video surveillance. The official standards advisory council will meet several times over the next 16 months.
Along with the committee’s security industry experts, key personnel from FAA, TSA, AAAE, ACC, ACI, DHS and additional industry-associated individuals will be invited to attend and observe.
