Counter Technology, Inc. (CTI) is a C-corporation established in 1986 and headquartered in Gaithersburg, Maryland near Washington, DC. CTI specializes in security consulting, management, research, and systems design. Key personnel listed on this proposal include former law enforcement, military, and security officials. Our experts, specialists, and engineers have provided services for the aviation industry, major corporations, non-profit organizations, and governments at all levels.
CTI’s project experience and staff expertise has been instrumental in CTI being selected to develop Security Master Plans for several high-profile clients, which have included airports with Category X designations, including Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport, the City of Phoenix Aviation Department, the Houston Airport System, and the Chicago Department of Aviation. These Security Master Plans serve as blueprints for the overall security program for our clients, and include the completion of a comprehensive threat, vulnerability, and risk assessment for each airport and the development of a prioritized list of enhancement options (recommendations for improvements, critical milestones, phased implementation approach, system conceptual design, and cost estimates), and related threat matrices. One major project was the three-year implementation of the $53 million-dollar project at O’Hare and Midway airports for its access control, CCTV, communication center, and EOC systems.
CTI key personnel have a long history of performing strategic security studies, many of which require integrated security systems. These systems have included contact and proximity card access and biometric fingerprint technologies, as well as video surveillance/analytics systems. CTI has provided security studies and assessments, including public area protection and bomb blast mitigation.
CTI’s expert consultants are engaged with industry associations and working groups, serving on security technology and standards committees, and authoring industry guidance documents such as PARAS 0005, “Airport Breach Classification and Best Practices” for Safe Skies. CTI also participated in the development of the TSA’s “Recommended Security Construction Guidelines for Airport Planning, Design and Construction” in 2011 as part of the Aviation Security Advisory Committee (ASAC) Working Group, and RTCA’s “Airport Security Access Control Systems” for Special Committee 224 (SC-224); CTI personnel edited the RTCA’s latest revision of that document, DO-230H. This engagement helps us maintain our edge on technology.
For over 30 years, both before and after the events of September 11, 2001, CTI has been at the forefront of the security industry. Our understanding of the needs and concerns of our clients has kept us there.
