ADB Safegate is showcasing its integrated gate and tower solutions at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Amsterdam from March 14-16.
The solutions company’s Safedock Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS) and SafeControl Apron Management system uses automation and integration to create a safe, smooth gate operation that shortens turnaround times, eases congestion and increases gate capacity.
Christian Onselaere, CEO of ADB Safegate, said, “Today, most airport accidents occur at the gate and apron area, and safety is a challenge in these confined areas. We believe automation and integration can reduce complexities at the gate and in the tower.
“Our gate and tower solutions improve situational awareness and improve traffic flow from arrival to departure to enable airports to maximize safety and performance.”
Safedock A-VDGS automates and speeds up the docking process, allowing aircraft to be parked faster in most weather conditions. It ensures aircraft and gate compatibility, verifying the passenger boarding bridge position and scanning the apron for vehicles or other objects to make sure it is safe.
It supports tower surface surveillance systems by tracking aircraft movement within the gate area upon arrival and during pushback, and sends position details to the tower via SafeControl Apron Management.
The company is also displaying its integrated tower portfolio, which provides intelligent routing and guidance with full control at the tower, and enables Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) to improve predictability and efficiency in traffic flows. Integrated Controller Working Position (CWP), its latest solution, incorporates multifunctional and important air traffic control tower systems into a user-friendly single screen to enhance safety and efficiency.
ADB Safegate is at Stand 2080 at the show, and visitors can experience the systems through an interactive virtual-reality demo.
