Situation awareness is crucial factor in decision-making. It involves monitoring and identification of relationships among objects in collaborative dynamic environments. In the domain of Airport Security one of the main needs is to support the security operator to manage in real-time risk scenarios in the airside. This work relies on a cognitive approach to model the awareness ontology and introduces an agent-based architecture to address the problem. In particular, in order to model situation awareness the work instantiates the generic Situation Theory Ontology(STO) in the specific domain of airport security. Furthermore, some task-oriented agents allow to distribute the information in order to achieve better performances.
