IP-based security takes off at Montana airport with Axis

Bozeman Yellowstone Airport chooses Axis cameras and exacqVision video management system (VMS) software for terminal expansion security solution

“IP cameras and IP-based video management are essential to the needs of a modern airport facility. IP-based systems allow different users the ability to access and utilize the system, as well as provide quality, high resolution images.” Andrew Lee, Senior Aviation Designer, RS&H.


Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport in Belgrade, Montana connects travelers with southwestern Montana, Yellowstone National Park and Big Sky ski resort. In the midst of record growth, the airport launched an expansion and renovation project. At the time of the expansion, they relied on analog technology for video security, but they were driven to upgrade to an IP-based system to complement the forward-thinking redesign.


Jacksonville, Florida-based infrastructure design consultant RS&H recommended Axis network cameras to complement the exacqVision Enterprise VMS software and RS2 Technologies access control being installed by Illinois-based systems integrator Video and Sound Service, Inc. The Axis cameras were chosen because of their ability to seamlessly integrate with the VMS and access control, as well as their high quality images, solid construction and high reliability. The airport installed AXIS P3344 Fixed Dome Network Cameras over entryways, outdoor-ready AXIS P1344-E and AXIS P1347-E Network Cameras for external security, and AXIS 233D pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) Network Cameras for support in the terminal and other areas.


With the launch of the IP video security solution, Bozeman airport has set a course for the future. The IP-based system makes it easy for the public safety officers to monitor multiple feeds at once and keep watch over the entire airport, indoors and out. The airport is able to use its resources more effectively, and it has greater control over video and who can access it. The system has helped make the airport more secure as it continues to grow.
