Airside Technologies Development Program at San Diego International Airport

Burns designs airside information and communications technology for the busiest single-runway commercial airport in the United States.

San Diego International Airport receives more than 25 million passengers each year, a 10-fold increase since opening in 1967.

To accommodate an expected 40 million passengers by 2035, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (SDCRAA) has initiated a five-year program to relocate the existing Taxiway A, construct a second parallel taxiway, and replace Terminal 1 with a modern 30-gate facility.

As part of a Jacobs-led design team, Burns is reviewing existing airside Information and Communications Technology (ICT) systems. New fiber-optic cable infrastructure will be re-routed throughout the airfield and between terminals.

Burns is designing the airside technology infrastructure to enable continuous airfield operations during the development program and, through comprehensive computing infrastructure, to support future digital transformation and innovation.

Following a phased approach, the project will support more than 40 information technology systems, including:

  • Passenger Information,
  • Networks and Infrastructure,
  • Physical and Electronic Security,
  • Wi-Fi and Radio, and
  • Audio-Video and Communication.

Burns offers unparalleled knowledge in specialized airport IT, security and communications systems engineering with expertise across access control, CCTV, alarm monitoring, flight information systems, telecommunications and structured cabling.

Similar projects include specialized engineering services for Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority and Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.
