ADB SAFEGATE will introduce a brand new integrated management solution at the French airports Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and ORLY (ORY). As a component of the A-CDM process, new apron management systems and docking systems will be implemented at both airports with a potential of up to 450 units, maintained and supported to enhance airport throughput, tackle congestion, optimize airport transit process efficiency and strengthen the Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) process and the predictability for the Network Manager at these airports.
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.
Do you think the turnaround process could be faster, while still maintaining the highest level of safety? Can your airport handle more aircraft? Ask ADB Safegate Group and the answer will be yes. Modern apron management solutions and advanced visual docking guidance system are both vital to speed up turnaround efficiency and decrease the risk of delay – a gain for airport stakeholders as well as for the passengers.
The Pilot Common Project (PCP), defined by SESAR in order to allow large airports in Europe to handle increasing air traffic, will require certain functionalities of traditional Air Traffic Management systems. Several of the new functionalities are a result of integration and how this should be fulfilled can be interpreted differently. Choosing an Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS) to support the requirement for future operational needs is an imperative. In this article we highlight some of the important functionalities.
AIRPORT PERFORMANCE – VIDEO. In years to come, more and more people will chose air travel. Air traffic expansion and capacity crunch are the biggest challenges at many airports, threatening to jepordize efficiency and take a big bite of profitability. At ADB Safegate we use technology and our know-how to minimize these problems. We optimize airfield and gate infrastructure to enhanche the safety of aircraft guidance in all weather conditions at any time of the day. But why does it matter? This video reminds us.
Is your airport operating at the full capacity in all weather conditions? Do you believe it is as safe as possible with regard to runway operations, and foreign object debris (FOD) detection around gates? Would you like to find out how to increase safety, capacity and throughput in all weather conditions, but don’t know where to start? A CONOPS (Concept of Operations) can provide you with these answers. Continue reading
The market trend towards modernizing ATCO working positions through ATC system and display integration is a growing topic in the industry. With multiple numbers of screens, mimic panels and other input devices cluttering and even complicating their work, the air traffic controllers are forced to create a mental image of the total situation on the airfield, despite the multitude of tools on the Air Traffic Control (ATC) console. Today, the market is realizing there is a better way that has significant advantages. Continue reading
Alexander Herring, Managing Director Safegate Germany/France, recently had an audience with H.E. Minister of Transport of Cameroon, M. Edgard Alain MEBE NGO’O to discuss airport expansion plans for airports in Cameroon, Africa. The country aims to strengthen its role as transport hub for Central Africa by enhancing efficiency and safety at the country’s international airports. Continue reading
Since the early days of aviation, air traffic controllers (ATCO) have suffered from a high number of screens, mimic panels and multiple input devices. The controller is forced to create a mental image of the total situation on the airfield and take appropriate action based on this mental image. With thousands of flights each day this is a very challenging task and the controller will not always be able to make the most optimal decision.
