WHITEPAPER. Traditionally an owner/operator of an airport network would have installed a stand-alone Airport Operations Systems (AOS) at each and every airport to enable effective and efficient flight turnaround operations. That is now in the past. A truly multi-airport capable AOS means that multiple airports throughout an entire network of stations can all be managed from a single multi-airport AOS deployment, and elevate the entire airport operations ecosystem.
The movement of aircraft and authorised vehicles around the taxiways can be a complex affair, particularly during peak periods, low visibility and at night. Air Traffic Controllers balance keeping voice communications simple and concise with the need to ensure flight crews and vehicle drivers have a clear and unambiguous understanding of their clearances.
