PRESS RELEASE. A new concourse at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport includes ADB SAFEGATE’s gate solutions delivered by AERO BridgeWorks. The 14-gate concourse is a key element of the airport’s Project Journey construction program. The new gates are operated by American Airlines and feature ADB SAFEGATE’s Safedock Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS) and SafeControl Apron Management. With this automated system, pilots can park aircraft precisely and safely, even in adverse weather conditions.
The baggage collection hall has long been a bottleneck, with passengers jostling to be at the front of the carousel crowds and the first to retrieve their luggage. However, coronavirus has signaled an end to travelers rubbing shoulders with one another, and the baggage hall is now subject to the same social distancing rules as the rest of the airport.

As part of a special report on information technology, Airport World, the official magazine of the Airports Council International (ACI), published an article written by ADB SAFEGATE’s Thorben Burghardt on closing the data gaps to automate airport operations. The article looks at how data has become the new integration layer for applications of multiple vendors.
Recently Ground Support Worldwide published an article written by Josh Smith about how ADB SAFEGATE´s SafeControl Management System uses real-time intelligence to optimize operations on the ramp. In a data-driven world, more information provides opportunities to be efficient. ADB SAFEGATE is helping deliver key information to ground personel while keeping them connected with airport and airline officials for improved operations on the ramp.
APRON and GATE related applications, products – or in combination solutions – have conventionally been installed in relatively encapsulated environments. The solution got defined, often tailored for a specific airport under the “we are different” paradigm, installed and … frozen. Sticking to the encapsulated system environment, this has not necessarily been a “worst choice”-scenario. Many solutions are running this way for more than 15 years, a long time out of the books but still providing 100% performance.
Two aviation innovators are combining technologies to revolutionize both sides of airport ground operations: at the gate, and on the aircraft. Working together under a recently concluded Memorandum of Understanding, the companies’ respective systems will greatly enhance safety and throughput at airport gates. Continue reading
