We asked Dr Mike Nash, an independent aviation industry expert serving as a faculty member of the Institute for Competitive Intelligence, to give us his insights into the trends and technologies affecting ATC today and into the future. Read what he has to say about remote towers, space-based ADS-B and operational efficiency. Continue reading

AWARD. The Integrated Controller Working Position from ADB SAFEGATE – OneControl – has been nominated for this year’s Fast Forward Award, a business award for innovative products, chaired by the Styrian Research Society. The awards showcase which of today’s pioneering inventions can shape the world of tomorrow. Six companies are nominated in the same category as OneControl and ADB SAFEGATE. Continue reading
Although remote towers bring many benefits and more are being deployed, the possibilities of further digital transformation of the tower go much further, believes Conor Mullan of Think Research. Mullan challenged the audience at the ADB SAFEGATE Aviation Summit in the UK in May 2018 to think differently. Continue reading
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
World ATM Congress is the world’s largest international air traffic management (ATM) exhibition and conference, attracting over 7,500 people from more than 130 countries. ADB SAFEGATE will be there to present our latest integrated tower solutions as an integral part of our Airport Performance strategy that extends across four domains – Gate, Tower, Airfield and Services. Come visit us at stand 351 at World ATM Congress in Madrid, Spain (March 6-8) for more information. Continue reading
VIDEO. At inter airport Europe 2017 ADB SAFEGATE demonstrated its new Pushback Support Tool that simplifies air traffic control (ATC) workloads and enhances airport safety and efficiency. The tool automatically suggests the optimum aircraft pushback routine, monitors the pushback procedure and warns ATC of potential conflicts with other aircraft or vehicles in the apron area. Continue reading
ADB SAFEGATE is launching a Pushback Support Tool that simplifies air traffic control workloads and enhances airport safety and efficiency. Part of ADB SAFEGATE’s portfolio of systems for the tower, the tool automatically suggests the optimum aircraft pushback procedure, monitors its progress and warns ATC of potential conflicts with obstacles and other aircraft or vehicles in the apron area. Continue reading
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).
Last year, passenger numbers were the highest on record, breaking the 250 million mark for the first time in the U.K. With the aviation industry growing rapidly, there are new airport stories to be told all the time. At the Airport Matters 2016 – AOA Annual Conference in London, one of the projects highlighted is a film presenting the Integrated Tower Solution Project where Birmingham Airport and ADB SAFEGATE work together to enhance Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM).
