Jackson Hole Airport embraces a
technological solution for its security needs.

THE JACKSON Hole Airport (JAC) lies seven miles
north of Jackson, Wyoming, at the base of the Teton
mountains. It is unique for being entirely within
Grand Teton National Park. Jackson Hole Airport is
the busiest airport in the state, with nearly 500,000
in-bound passengers annually.
The airport covers over 500 acres
and has one runway that supports 11
hard-stands and nine boarding gates and
three baggage carousels.
Distinct in their remote location and
operation requirements, since 2009 the
team at Jackson Hole Airport has relied
on open platform, video management
software (VMS) to enhance security,
safety and efficiency. Being isolated
on the edge of wilderness makes
both system reliability and f lexibility
important. Over the past few years, the
scalable system has enabled the airport

to expand its video applications, first by
growing their IT team, then increasing
the number of cameras, as well as the
data storage capabilities.
" We've gone through some pretty
big upgrades and our use of video
continues to expand, " said Andrew
Wells, IT manager for the Jackson Hole
Airport. " We have close to 220 cameras
in use now, with a lot of 4K cameras,
and we increased our storage from 32
terabytes to a full petabyte. "
Wells explained that the airport
made significant capital investments
over recent years and scaling out the
video system was needed. New facilities
included a fuel farm, car wash and
expanded parking facilities.

Safe Parking and
Remote Plane Deicing
With the parking expansion alone,
48 new cameras were added with the

safety of employees and the public.
Monitoring snow removal equipment
is also accomplished and recorded video
has become helpful in verifying any
accidents or damage caused by the plows.
While fairly rare, the recorded video is
also used to investigate events such as
accidents, theft or vandalism.
" Our system growth has been
significant, but I think we're leveling off
now and getting close to where we need
to be, " said Wells. " On the airfield, we
now have good coverage on the ramp
and that allows us and our tenants to
watch their operations to make sure
everything's good. "
Jackson Hole Airport has to contend
with a great deal of plane deicing for
several months each year. Aircraft are
de-iced away from the main buildings,
and while the airport has infrastructure
there, the airlines do not.
Beginning last year, the airport
started providing client airlines access
