Since 2006, Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) has been incrementally transitioning its airfield lighting from incandescent to light emitting diode (LED) technology. Dave Garrett, the airport authority’s electrical department manager, explains that the switch has several benefits, including energy savings, product longevity and—to a certain degree—reduced maintenance.

The interests of airlines and airports are very closely linked, i.e. the success of one group contributes to the success of the other. As such, airlines and airports are very close business partners. When IATA released their new edition of the Airport Development Reference Manual they thought that it would be of great benefit to do so in joint collaboration with their colleagues from ACI.
Air traffic increases at a tremendous speed, bringing airports to their capacity limits and making the operations even more complicated. To meet the increasing demand additional systems are put into place, supporting controllers in their daily work. When not harmonized, these systems often add more workload to the already heavy task list of controllers . OneControl reduces complexity and lets ATCO:s focus on their real task – managing air traffic. Continue reading

Africa’s aviation sector is growing rapidly, and airports need to prepare for their market situation in five, 10, or even 20 years since it may take that long to actually develop or adapt the master plan to meet the airports changing need and to provide the infrastructure and capacity needed. The 6th Annual Africa Airport Expansion Summit in Addis Ababa gathers the industry in order to explore the market and support the project development. ADB SAFEGATE´s Alexander Herring, chairing the Summit shares his thoughts about the future of African aviation.
IATA projects a 5.1% growth in passenger numbers across the region where nearly 300 million passengers will travel to and from African destinations and as a result, airport development projects today are mushrooming across the continent. ADB SAFEGATE’s Alexander Herring chairs the 6th Annual Africa Airport Expansion Summit in Addis Ababa where the development and expansion plans will be discussed.
When looking to boost operational efficiency and safety through automation, the GTAA needed a gate solution with more advanced functionality and integration capabilities to support collaborative decision making on the apron. After a competitive review of the latest technologies, the GTAA once again turned to ADB SAFEGATE to deploy its latest Safedock T1 advanced visual docking guidance system (A-VDGS) and SafeControl Apron Management (SAM) integration solution.
