NEW VIDEO. Looking back at inter airport 2017 – a guided tour around the ADB SAFEGATE stand where we showcased integrated solutions to help airport boost performance. At every stage of the aircraft´s process from approach to departure, integrated solutions can achieve time savings to reduce the total amount of time aircraft spend on the ground, as well as improve the efficiency of airport resources to decrease costs. Watch Ieyasu Sugimoto, Global Product Manager ATC Solutions, explain how ADB SAFEGATE´s integrated airport solutions can help optimize operations and increase throughput.
INTEGRATION: Aircraft only make money for their airlines when flying and transporting people and goods. Airports also don’t want an aircraft on the ground for longer than necessary – that space and time could be occupied by another aircraft, making the most of the airport’s capacity. It’s no wonder that airports are increasingly turning to automation and information management systems to improve efficiency and safety and support Air Traffic Control (ATC).
VIDEO. Imagine one integrated operational process from approach to departure. To make this a reality, such a solution must integrate and intelligently support many different guidance and traffic control functions, including tower control systems, airfield lighting, docking control and gate management. Watch our colleagues talk about how ADB SAFEGATE’s integrated airport solutions for gate, airfield and the tower can improve airport performance.
In the aviation industry staying abreast of the latest developments is imperative. ADB SAFEGATE’s series of specially designed dedicated training packages aim to improve and sustain the competence of airport staff, helping them perform their jobs better as well as reach their competency development and career advancement goals. Make sure to stay ahead of the learning curve in 2017. Apply for one of our courses in gate, airfield or ATC. Continue reading
Australia’s biggest annual aviation conference and exhibition – the Australian Airports Association National Conference will be held at the National Convention Centre in Canberra from November 21 to 25, 2016. Participating in the event, ADB SAFEGATE will exhibit solutions to optimize airport performance and get the best result for maximum value when working in airfield projects.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) recently completed two massive projects to relight and remark its airfield. Almost all of the work occurred simultaneously, from March 2014 to July 2015. Together, the improvements cost the airport about $34 million – with no outside funding.
Ensuring operational availability without compromising on airfield safety – this is the dilemma that most airports face today. Airfield maintenance plays a crucial role in ensuring both availability and safety, and while most airports already have processes, people and systems in place for maintenance, there is always room for improvement. We interviewed Niels Burez after he presented a paper at 2014 IES-ALC Annual Aviation Lighting Conference. Continue reading
Safegate Airport Systems and Liberty Airport Systems represented Safegate Group at the 87th Annual AAAE Conference & Exposition, June 7-10, 2015, in Philadelphia, PA.
The AAAE Conference & Exposition is one of North America’s largest annual airport events, gathering more than 2,000 airport executives and business partners representing more than 250 airports.
Airfield lighting (also known as airfield ground lighting) has come a long way since its beginnings in the 1940s during the rigors of war-time. Considering the increasing demands on the aviation industry today, what would pilots, airports and passengers have done had they been limited to flying only during daylight? Air traffic demand is rising and will double within 15 years, just as it has done since the 1970s. Airfield lighting has played a significant part in enabling the growth of the aviation industry that has revolutionized how we travel, work and enjoy our leisure time.
