Bournemouth Airport tests thermal cameras

Trials have begun at Bournemouth Airport of Thermal Fever Detection technology.

Developed by IT solutions firm SCC, a system has been installed at the airport's staff entrance to pick up signs of high temperatures.

The next phase will see cameras positioned at each entry point across the airport's terminal building, in departures and arrivals, allowing border staff to intercept any passengers showing signs of a high temperature.

"When the UK is ready to ease strict lockdown measures, we will see permanent changes to the way we live and work, and all businesses will need to implement new protective measures to prevent the further spread of Covid-19 and other contagious diseases by reducing the opportunity for transmission," said SCC chief executive James Rigby.

"Critically, all businesses must be in a position to demonstrate that safe social distancing measures are in place before the country is able to mobilise again, and SCC's Thermal Fever Detection solution could be an important component of solutions enabling this, helping companies regain consumer confidence and begin to recover from the most unprecedented economic event of modern times."

The technology is also being extensively tested in hospitals and restaurants.
