PRODUCT LAUNCH. Our AXON EQ LED elevated light utilizes the latest sensing technologies to capture data critical to making airport operations more streamlined and predictive, and reducing time and costs associated with installation, commissioning and maintenance.
Earlier this year, San Francisco International Airport (SFO) revealed plans to repave its shortest runway, 1L-19R, with new asphalt. That’s not unusual, because the airport regularly performs minor routine maintenance on its four runways combined with a full repaving every 10 to 12 years based on usage. It was simply 1L-19R’s turn in the rotation. The unusual part is that this time, the airport was planning to complete the work in eight short weeks. Continue reading
SAVE THE DATE. One of the most important events on the airport industry’s calendar will soon be with us again– inter airport Europe 2023. We will be in Munich on October 10-13 to introduce ADB SAFEGATE Airside 4.0 and show how we can help empowering the airside evolution. We´re looking forward to meeting you in person at Booth 1320, Hall B5 to discuss how we can be working together with the beginning of a new era in aviation.
DESIGN. Its been a year since ADB SAFEGATE embraced Building Information Modeling (BIM)! Our BIM library is now complete, including BIM objects of our airfield ground lighting, docking products, power equipment, signage and more. You can find out more about these BIM objects by accessing our BIM library.
The future of the aviation industry is data-driven and technology-enabled, and Airside 4.0 is at the forefront of this evolution. It is empowering airports to move towards a smarter, more sustainable future, paving the way for efficient and safer airports.
Traditionally, airfield lighting fixtures served only basic functional purposes, enabling airports to switch lights on and off to guide aircraft during landing and taxiing manoeuvres. However, with the addition of integrated sensors into AGL IoT devices, it is possible to collect a tremendous amount of data, not only regarding the operation of the light but also about the airside ecosystem in which it operates. Digital twins are modelled to replicate the behaviour and performance of the physical objects in real-time, using data gathered from the sensors or other sources of information.
The aviation industry is evolving rapidly and airports must adapt to meet the new challenges and demands of the industry. Hubs are under more pressure than ever to reduce costs, increase safety and improve efficiency. The Airside 4.0 concept by ADB SAFEGATE empowers them to achieve these goals by leveraging new and emerging technologies to revolutionise airside operations.
LED. Get ready to celebrate! It’s been 20 years since ADB SAFEGATE launched its groundbreaking LED technology in the aviation industry and revolutionized the way we light up airfields. From the origins of our 2002 research to the launch of our first LED product, the Taxiway Edge in 2003, LED innovation has changed the game for airports around the world. Continue reading
TRAINING. The ADB SAFEGATE Training Academy worked hard on the training portfolio for 2024! We have new airfield advanced courses to offer but also new training locations. We are delighted to offer in-person classroom training now in 6 major cities across the globe: Kuala Lumpur, Dubai and Johannesburg are added to the list of training centres, on top of Columbus, Malmö and Brussels!

PRESS RELEASE. Leveraging innovative artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions from ADB SAFEGATE, SHIA-operated airports can more accurately predict Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) to improve apron operations and passenger services. 75% of flights now land within 30 minutes of their scheduled landing time benfiting pre-allocation of stands and reducing the need to make stand changes by 25%.
