What are the main technical requirements of an airport when it comes to their airfield ground lighting? Our own research, including discussions with our airport customers, chimes nicely with an industry survey that pinpoints two major needs – high energy efficiency and small size – to simplify maintenance and enable easy integration.
The Reliance Power HF is part of the ADB SAFEGATE intelligent AGL solution. It has been designed to meet the top priority needs of airports for their lighting installations. The flexible power module system brings multiple benefits for many of the real-life installations that we get involved with every day. Power HF is suitable for existing lighting installations and can support an airport’s ambitions to upgrade to LED for even greater energy savings.
RESEARCH. In 2017, Frost & Sullivan kicked off its “Digital Transformation in Aviation” research initiative, running a series of global airline and airport surveys, aiming to understand the current state and future digital vision of operators. This article presents an overview of the key topics covered in the discussions with airport end-users, complemented by Frost & Sullivan’s own insights from published research reports on airport IT systems and airport landside/airside services.

NEW VIDEO. Why partnering with ADB SAFEGATE? An interview with Senior Vice President, Airports Systems Division & Logistics at SATCO. Saudi Arabian Trading & Construction Co (SATCO) is an expert in Build, Operate and Transfer. It uses a specific business model that is in airport business quite unique and illustrates a shift in the industry where key players redefine their scope and take up a larger ownership and expand their activities from a mere contractor to also a full-fledged design & operational partner of the airport. We interview key customers to better understand their current and future challenges but also the new business models that are being implemented around the world.
It’s a fact that most of the glamour generated by the aviation business can be attributed to airlines and their operators. But as industry insiders will agree, the sky-borne aspect of the aviation business is comparatively straightforward. The environment, the costs, the product are all relatively predictable. Airports on the other hand face a myriad of extra challenges including geophysical, environmental, social, regulatory, political, climatic and project management-related.
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.
