PRESS RELEASE. A new concourse at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport includes ADB SAFEGATE’s gate solutions delivered by AERO BridgeWorks. The 14-gate concourse is a key element of the airport’s Project Journey construction program. The new gates are operated by American Airlines and feature ADB SAFEGATE’s Safedock Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS) and SafeControl Apron Management. With this automated system, pilots can park aircraft precisely and safely, even in adverse weather conditions.
The baggage collection hall has long been a bottleneck, with passengers jostling to be at the front of the carousel crowds and the first to retrieve their luggage. However, coronavirus has signaled an end to travelers rubbing shoulders with one another, and the baggage hall is now subject to the same social distancing rules as the rest of the airport.

PRESS RELEASE. The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA), which operates Orlando International Airport (MCO), has chosen AERO BridgeWorks to deliver a turnkey project for the airport’s new South Terminal, specifying ADB SAFEGATE’s Safedock Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS) and SafeControl Apron Management. The GOAA chose the automated solution to help ensure a safe and efficient ramp and support the common-use gate environment at the new terminal.
The ADB SAFEGATE solution ALIS guides you through the digital transformation process for all airfield relevant maintenance and asset management activities. It starts with simplifying the creation of your installed base information. ALIS helps optimizing your maintenance schedules, it keeps records of the asset status for the maintenance provider, it helps monitoring the progress of sub contractors involved, and of course documents and reports the activities for the end user.
ADB SAFEGATE TRAINING ACADEMY. The second online course of the Training Academy was successfully delivered from the 25th to the 29th of May to 8 participants from all over the world. Thank you to Laurent Tholl and to the attendants for the instructive discussions.
From revolutionary theater lighting controls in the 1920s to advanced systems for airport performance in the 2020s, ADB SAFEGATE continues to deliver innovation to make aviation safer, sustainable and more enjoyable for passengers.
Sandwiched between two large bodies of water, the peninsula of Florida receives lots of warm, humid air. When combined with sunlight and ocean breezes, it’s the perfect brew for thunderstorms—and operational challenges for airports like Southwest Florida International (RSW) in Fort Myers. RSW recently installed an automated docking system on each of its concourses to mitigate such risks and keep planes moving.
Several years ago, LED technology transformed airfield ground lighting. Its adoption has since been rapid and unstoppable as airports reap the rewards of substantially lower energy costs, ultra-long lamp life, high-quality output and much faster response times compared to the conventional halogen lighting. Build a safer, lower cost airfield. Today, we stand on the threshold of a further transformation as advanced control systems build on the capabilities of LED lighting and other technologies to create the intelligent airfield.
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).
Istanbul New Airport, expected to be the world’s largest airport, will serve as Turkey’s primary airport and a hub between Europe and Asia. ADB SAFEGATE will conduct an AGL design review and install its intelligent airfield solutions including intelligent LED ground lighting and visual aids. These will improve throughput and efficiency, and enable safer and more sustainable operations. Continue reading
