IT solution supplier Amorph Systems has announced the development of a new application, called Rufus, that helps airports digitize their operations faster and will, it hopes, revolutionize the aviation IT landscape.
The product is a cloud-based flight information system that uses open flight data sources to visualize in real time all relevant airport information about flights, passenger numbers and resource availability. All while fitting within the company’s existing Amorph.aero platform.
The entire platform runs on the Microsoft Azure cloud technology and can be set up for an airport within a day. The solution can be further enriched with all Amorph.aero modules like simulation capabilities to include social distancing and resource planning, predictive machine learning algorithms or an airport map for flight visualization.
Amorph said that the system will enable airport managers and all other stakeholders to quickly react to all changes and grant access to their employees from all places, even when working from home. Additionally, Rufus can be applied to large airport groups thus managing multiple airports under one roof, as the solution is able to show all information and KPIs in a single view.
“Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, airports are, and will be for the next months ahead, under extreme cost pressure,” said Dr Frank Frauenhoffer, managing director of Amorph Systems. “With our new application, airports can act more flexible from where to operate and scale their IT spending better in line with their traffic and revenue streams. The optimization of costs, especially for IT infrastructure will be essential in the future.”
