In an industry survey done to examine top priority needs of airports regarding lighting installations, airports said that energy efficiency and product size were most important. At inter airport Europe 2017, ADB SAFEGATE is showing its full range of an ultra-compact Power HF solution, which is 33% smaller and 30% more efficient than conventional power systems. The solution is suitable for existing lighting installations which can support an airport’s ambitions to upgrade to LED for even greater energy savings.
Integrated tower, airfield and gate systems support the highest operational efficiency to minimise aircraft time on the ground. This, in turn leads to increased airport capacity with existing airport infrastructure, while the highest safety is maintained at all times. To understand how this can all be achieved through integration, let’s follow an airliner from approach to departure.
VIDEO. At every stage of the aircraft´s process from approach to departure, integrated systems 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 the video to see how much time and money you can help your airport save.

ADB SAFEGATE has achieved a key milestone in airfield ground lighting (AGL) with the installation of the 1.2 millionth LED AGL fixture globally. The company began LED design, development and production more than 15 years ago, and today more than 750 airports use ADB SAFEGATE’s LED solutions. With 2 out of 3 LED airfield lights worldwide installed by ADB SAFEGATE, the company reinforces its leadership in LED airfield lighting industry.
ADB SAFEGATE is launching a Pushback Support Tool that simplifies air traffic control workloads and enhances airport safety and efficiency. Part of ADB SAFEGATE’s portfolio of systems for the tower, the tool automatically suggests the optimum aircraft pushback procedure, monitors its progress and warns ATC of potential conflicts with obstacles and other aircraft or vehicles in the apron area.

ADB SAFEGATE will demonstrate at inter airport Europe 2017 (Munich, 10-13 October) how airports can handle far more air traffic without the need to build costly new infrastructure. By integrating tower, airfield and gate systems, airports can substantially reduce the amount of time aircraft spend on the ground, all while maintaining the highest safety. Time can be saved at every stage of an aircraft’s airport journey, from final approach to landing, while taxiing, during the gate turnaround process, to departure.
Uninformed commentators cite security as the biggest challenge for airports in coming decades. But peak industry bodies such as IATA and ACI differ. They identify dramatic increase in passenger numbers as the airport industry’s single biggest challenge. IATA has flagged passenger traffic increases of up to 100% over current levels by 2035; that could mean an extra 3.7 billion passengers who will need accommodating by airports around the world.
King Khalid International Airport (KKIA), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia is one of the busiest airports in the Middle East but the airport has faced many operational challenges where irregularity in operations and coordination has been affecting the entire airport ecosystem and translated to excessive operational costs. ADB SAFEGATE is now signing a € 5.50m deal to help improve the safety, efficiency and reliability of apron operations at the airport. Continue reading
As air traffic continues to boom, airports face many challenges. The key is to integrate the many disparate airport systems and apply automation to reduce substantially the time aircraft spend on the ground. To see how our solutions work together to provide enhanced efficiency across the airport, visit us at inter airport Europe in Munich this autumn. Continue reading
