Recommended Security Guidelines for Airport Planning, Design and Construction [Revised June 2001] [open pdf - 2MB]
This document presents recommendations for incorporating sound security considerations into the planning, design, construction, and modification of airport terminal buildings and other security-related airport facilities. It consolidates information developed through the participation of Federal Aviation Administration, government, and aviation industry professionals, and incorporates a wealth of knowledge. This knowledge was gained through the recent experiences of a broad range of aviation security programs and projects at numerous United States airports, and through the continuing efforts of government and industry to develop improved approaches to incorporating cost-effective security features into the early planning and design of airport facilities. The information is presented here in a single document, which may be revised and updated periodically as regulations, security requirements, and technology change.
