VIDEO. Airfield lighting at an airport today is shifting towards more intelligence within the light fixtures themselves. Watch our global product managers Andreas Wirandi and Tom Werdefroy explain airfield intelligence in this video.
UPDATE. In a two-part article series, ADB SAFEGATE’s global ATM advisor, Stephen O’Flynn, explains Follow the Greens. In this first article, Stephen gives us the current state of the Follow the Greens validation and shares some results from the Fraport report. In his next article, Stephen discusses why airports need to develop a roadmap for Follow the Greens.

How do solutions for more efficient airports go hand in hand with sustainability? At the Swedish Pavilion at inter airport China, ADB Safegate’s Guan Peng recently presented the company’s perspective on sustainable airports, taking the audience through some of the key aspects of our solutions across the tower, gate and airfield that reduce carbon footprint.
Carbon neutrality, 40% energy savings versus international standards, 100% clean energy operations – the expectations in terms of environmental sustainability for the new international airport in Mexico City are very high. The challenge now is how to reach these targets while accommodating 50 million passengers per year and ever growing traffic – 125 million planned in the project’s second stage.
ADB SAFEGATE was the Platinum sponsor of the Australian Airport Association’s Operations forum, OPS SWAP, in Brisbane which attracted 150 key operational stakeholders from Australia and New Zealand. The OPS SWAP is a forum about innovation and the optimization of airfield operations and this year ADB SAFEGATE displayed how our solutions contributes to Follow the Greens and A-CDM.
The positive impact aviation has on the global economy, social diversity and human development is truly staggering and could be seen as the main grease for global development. It also means that as a truly global industry we have to aspire, and have a clear ambition, towards reducing our environmental footprint and creating a low carbon pathway towards sustainable growth. Sustainable practices and technology advances are the two main ingredients in an upwards spiral that maintain the positive trend towards sustainable growth.
Cross-silo operation, system integration and benefits from “follow the greens” were on the agenda when Safegate’s Roy Bolwede gave his presentation ”Airports and the ATM System – Where Next?” at the ATC Global Conference 2015 in Dubai. The international air traffic management community was gathered for a three-day seminar and exhibition where each continent and more than one hundred countries were represented.
Airport airside traffic automation is increasingly gaining grounds with Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) and Airport Operators around the world. Tier one and mid-size airports face increasing and more complex traffic demands. Multifaceted movement traffic conditions pose new, higher demands on ATCOs, airport planning and minute-to-minute operational personnel.
Today’s Airports contain a complex network of stakeholders. Often these stakeholders have efficient management and communication strategies within their respective departments. However, inefficiencies that hamper productivity and performance can be created when these stakeholders interface with other departments and external organisations. If a holistic approach is to be implemented, a philosophy of One Airport – One Process needs to be adopted.
