Air traffic increases at a tremendous speed, bringing airports to their capacity limits and making the operations even more complicated. To meet the increasing demand additional systems are put into place, supporting controllers in their daily work. When not harmonized, these systems often add more workload to the already heavy task list of controllers . OneControl reduces complexity and lets ATCO:s focus on their real task – managing air traffic. Continue reading
World ATM Congress is the world’s largest international air traffic management (ATM) exhibition and conference, attracting over 7,500 people from more than 130 countries. ADB SAFEGATE will be there to present our latest integrated tower solutions as an integral part of our Airport Performance strategy that extends across four domains – Gate, Tower, Airfield and Services.

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).
Last year, passenger numbers were the highest on record, breaking the 250 million mark for the first time in the U.K. With the aviation industry growing rapidly, there are new airport stories to be told all the time. At the Airport Matters 2016 – AOA Annual Conference in London, one of the projects highlighted is a film presenting the Integrated Tower Solution Project where Birmingham Airport and ADB SAFEGATE work together to enhance Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM).
Today is the “International Day of the Air Traffic Controller”, but at ADB SAFEGATE, we celebrate ATC every day. Our integrated tower solutions aim to make daily life at work easier for ATCOs. Air traffic controllers are keeping an eye on each and every aircraft movement across the airfield and local aerodrome, keeping 3.5 billion passengers safe in the sky. Continue reading
Exciting times ahead for African aviation, with IATA forecasting 5% annual growth over the next 20 years. We’re at the 25th ACI Africa Annual General Assembly, Regional Conference and Exhibition. If you are here too, come visit us at booth 16 and 17. We’re happy to discuss solutions for gate, airfield and ATC and how to work together towards improved efficiency and safety.
Austria‘s biggest ever airshow, AIRPOWER, held from September 2-3, saw participation from around 240 aircraft from 20 countries in the varied static and flying displays. With over 300,000 visitors gathering for the enthralling airshow, the flight tower orchestrated the show supported by tower solutions from ADB Safegate.
UK. Leeds Bradford Airport, which serves 3.5 million passengers per year, has upgraded its Air Traffic Control systems to support its ambitious draft Masterplan proposals to deliver 7.1 million passengers annually by 2030. The Airport boosts air traffic capacity with advanced Air Traffic Control technology from ADB Safegate.
