Dallas Airport: The Massive Cost of JPEG2000

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on May 01, 2013

The Love Field Modernization Program (LFMP) is an ongoing $519 million dollar project to upgrade Dallas Love Field Airport that has received significant mass media attention. Renovations include security upgrades that LFMP hopes will provide capability to screen passengers more thoroughly with less intrusive techniques. To do that the airport said it wanted a surveillance system that could read license plates from afar and zoom in to polo shirt logos. In this note, we review the airport’s $3 million surveillance contract, an example how the cost of a contract can increase substantially when using JPEG2000.
