Hurried frequent fliers in suits commingled with flip-flop-wearing vacationers inside Logan Airport’s expansive Terminal A, their attention grabbed by itinerary printouts, monitors flashing departure information, and a winding line at the security checkpoint.
Rick Duggan, vice president of operations for Cains Foods, stood before a row of monitors and squinted as he tried to locate his flight number. After a reporter told him that he was underneath a one-of-a-kind surveillance camera, he looked up at the cathedral ceiling.
“That’s pretty impressive. I guess there are eyes on us right now,’’ said Duggan, 55, of Rye, N.H., studying the white half-orb dotted with nine camera lenses.
Logan Airport has added another piece of equipment to existing security measures that include full-body scanners and explosives detection units. In a post-9/11 world, the Department of Homeland Security is working with institutions such as MIT to develop tools to improve security at the nation’s airports.
