Who Does LPR For Planes?

Last year, we wrote about a case where an airport was able to successfully automate the task of documenting planes leaving the airport. The airport wanted to capture images of the tail numbers for tracking purposes. An airport out of upstate New York wants to take it a step further and implement a system that automatically records tail numbers to run them through a database. Officials are considering a $75,000 system, but some are questioning the cost.

Has anyone ever set up something like this? I did a quick search and only found one company, called TTI Wireless. The Department of Homeland Security is one of their customers. Any other companies do this or something similar?
