We have been working under the Home Office Accelerated Capability Environment (ACE) to create a central database of people who hold, or are applying for, passes to grant them airside access in UK airports
In collaboration with Naimuri, we have delivered an accredited Minimal Viable Product (MVP) of the Access Pass Holder Information Distribution System (APHIDS).
APHIDS will enable the process of more stringent and regular repeated Accreditation Checks (AC) as required by EU and UK legislation from December 2021.
Our approach was to develop a Proof of Concept using rapid prototyping and open source integration to demonstrate how the latest data and analysis tools and techniques could be used with data from more than 50 UK airports.
Our solution was APHIDS; one secure system which National Intelligence, Law Enforcement Agencies, Border Force, Police Forces, Counter-terrorism Policing, National Crime Agency, airport Security Managers and ID Admin Teams can access to search, and query, pass holder information.
Our solution provided the customer with several benefits, including:
BMT delivered the MVP at the end of March 2020. Alongside Naimuri, we are now under contract from April 2020 to further develop and deliver the solution.
“BMT were instrumental in the successful delivery of APHIDS. BMT took ownership of getting the project through delivery gates and helped us understand what needed to be done and when. They were reliable and on point to answer any questions at any time. The project’s success was largely down to their continued efforts and patience.”
Feedback from Home Office ACE.
The Airbus A400M is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft being designed and manufactured by Airbus Military, BMT supported the MoD A400M Project Team with the development of the VfMB required to support the In-Service Support Assessment Phase.
BMT developed an Astute Class OM Strategy which provides the framework within which OM is to be carried out through-life and across the Astute Class.
National Grid are currently leading “zero-2050”, a multi organisational initiative seeking to develop a co-ordinated cross-sector strategy for achieving net zero carbon emissions for the South Wales region.The UK has a target to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. A net-zero target requires deep reductions in emissions, coupled with techniques such as carbon capture and storage to offset any remaining sources.
BMT has industry-leading experience in the detailed investigation of water consumption that we apply to find targeted opportunities for reducing water consumption – typically with very strong return on investment. Our skills and experience span across a range of sectors that cover almost all large water users.
